HTC Puccini Becomes The AT&T Jetstream. Coming September 4th With LTE!

  • August 31, 2011 10:57 am

It’s official: The HTC Puccini will be AT&T’s first official LTE tablet, however, it will carry a different name. Besides LTE, the “Jetstream” as it’s being called will feature a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel rear/VGA front-facing cameras, and Android Honeycomb 3.1. For a limited time after launch, HTC will toss in the Scribe stylus as well.

Data is pretty simple: $35/month for 3 GB of data.

Pricing is said to be “discounted” at $700 with a 2-year contract, though no mention has been made of how much said tablet will cost without any contract. Our guess — a full leg and half an arm. Maybe one day carriers and/or manufacturers will learn the only way to steal the iPad’s thunder is to beat it in price. Until then…

[Update] HTC Puccini Android Tablet Spied Again. AT&T LTE Support Confirmed!

  • August 24, 2011 7:06 am

HTC’s Puccini tablet is a sharp, yet admittingly “normal” as far as Android tablets go. So how is HTC looking to differentiate? Oh perhaps by throwing AT&T LTE support into the mix. That’s right! HTC’s upcoming (and first) Honeycomb tablet will support AT&T’s next-gen super fast network.

Release date is still something that eludes us all. But let’s be real. Would you really drop serious cash on an LTE tablet that doesn’t have any LTE network to make use of (yet)? We didn’t think so. On that same note, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Puccini pushed back until 2012 for the aforementioned reason.

Did your hope in Android tablets just get revived?


It’s official — AT&T announces HTC Puccini/Jetstream tablet as carrier’s first LTE tablet.

HTC Puccini Screenshots Hit The Web. BLOATED With AT&T Software.

  • August 5, 2011 12:49 pm

It’s time for Gadgetsteria Good News/Bad news. Today, we’ll be looking at the newly leaked screenshots showcasing a newly Honeycomb’d HTC Puccini.

  • Good: Screenshots of the HTC-ified Puccini tablet have hit the web!
  • Bad: The Puccini is loaded with overpriced and gimmicky AT&T software.

Hardware manufacturer and carrier-branded apps are nothing new. What’s unfortunate, however, is that the aforementioned outfits still fail to realize they are downright terrible software developers. With that said, if you can look past the smorgasbord of AT&T bloatware there’s quite a lot to like, namely a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 10.1″ 1200 x 800 display and LTE.

As one of AT&T’s first LTE devices to publicly launch, it’s a bit disappointing to see their junk all over the place. Though we don’t expect it to take too terribly long for Android developers to hack and crack their way into the Puccini and rip the unnecessary junk out.

Does the HTC Puccini look like it will fill the gaps Motorola’s XOOM may not have covered? Be sure to check out the rest of the screenshots over at PocketNow

HTC Puccini Breaks Cover.

BGR is on a roll today. First the AT&T Galaxy S II and now the 10″ HTC Puccini tablet. Specs aren’t very hearty at this point and are in fact more rumor than concrete. Nonetheless, the most popular figures claim the tablet packs a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor, 8-megapixel camera w/ dual-LED flash, Honeycomb w/ HTC’s Sense UI, and most importantly, LTE. With even the basics up in the air, don’t even begin to question more important matters such as pricing and release date. More info as we find it. Check out the full gallery right over here.

What do you think — your next tablet?

HTC Puccini Specs Revealed Via Leaked ROM.

  • May 17, 2011 11:28 am

HTC’s first tablet (Flyer) may have some novel features like the nifty (read: potentially gimmicky) stylus and “write anywhere” software on top of Android, but it’s the larger 10.1-inch Puccini tablet that has our attention. And thanks to a newly leaked ROM compliments of 911Sniper we’ve got a good understanding of what HTC is bringing to the table:

  • Processor: 1.5GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon
  • Display: 10-inch 1280 x 800
  • 4G: LTE
  • 3.0 w/ Sense UI
  • Availability: June 2011

While there’s a few other loose ends we’d like to see tied up, it’s a worthy start. Would you pick a Puccini over a Flyer?
