Leak: Thunderbolt OTA update coming June 30th; Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, Amazon Appstore pre-installed

Thunderbolt owners have been frustrated about random reboots and other issues since the last update. We know that a fix is in the works and is supposed to come during the second half of June. But we hadn’t heard more about the OTA until these images showed up in Android and Me’s inbox.

A Verizon insider has sent us a couple of screenshots of the OTA’s release notice, and mentioned this update will be available June 30th. A possible release date is always nice to hear, but that’s not what impressed us the most. It seems this isn’t just a maintenance update as we originally had thought.

The leaked document mentions some impressive additions to the upcoming update, including features like Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, pre-installed Amazon Appstore, Skype video functionality and gTalk video compatibility (which comes with Android 2.3.4). Now, we may be a bit hesitant to believe this because these features do sound a bit “too good to be true,” but we surely hope this is legit! Our insider does mention there could be small changes to the release notice, though. Regardless of possible changes (whether good or bad), he does state the release date is definitely going stay the same (June 30).

Check out the images below, and don’t forget to share your opinions with us! What do you guys think? Real? Fake? Is this simply too amazing to believe?

Thank you, Verizon Wireless Insider!
