The HTC Puccini has been floating around for some time now as it passed through the FCC, screenshots leaked and it was finally spotted in the wild. Now it’s finally gotten official for AT&T with a bit of a name change to the HTC Jerstream.
Launching on September 4, the HTC Jetstream is packing a 10.1-inch WXGA, 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and both front and rear facing cameras. All of this will be powered by Android 3.1 Honeycomb running HTC Sense. For a limited tim you will also be able to get the HTC Scribe stylus thrown in for free.
While all of this sounds fairly nifty, you then get to the price. $699 with a minimin of a two-year 3GB per month contract for $35. In other words, the $699 is the subsidized price, but we have no clue what the off-contract pricing is.
“This tablet is a beautiful 10.1-inch, LTE powered masterpiece,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “When you combine powerful options like HTC Jetstream with our upcoming LTE technology and nationwide HSPA+ network, it flies.”
“HTC Jetstream combines the acclaimed HTC Sense experience with Android Honeycomb to provide an innovative and engaging experience on a 10.1 inch tablet,” said Martin Fichter, acting president, HTC Americas Region. “Paired with AT&T’s upcoming 4G LTE speed and mobility, HTC Jetstream delivers connectivity for social and entertainment needs alongside productivity and creativity tools in a portable package.”
