by: Gracielli RobaroSeptember 7, 2011

Formerly codenamed the HTC Puccini, the latest tablet from HTC has now arrived and is officially available on AT&T as the HTC Jetstream. The HTC Jetstream is HTC’s very first tablet powered by Android 3.1 Honeycomb.

AT&T sells the HTC Jetstream with a two-year contract for a lower price of only US$699.99. Without a two-year subscription with AT&T, the tablet’s full retail price is US$849.99.

The HTC Jetstream is completely available online and in AT&T-owned retail stores.

Although costly, the tablet’s technical specifications and features arguably compensates for its rather high price.

The HTC Puccini is the very first LTE-capable tablet of AT&T. Its multitasking abilities are powered by a 1.5-GHz, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Through Android 3.1 Honeycomb, the HTC Puccini or HTC Jetstream can access hundreds of thousands of applications from the Android Market. The HTC Sense UX user interface is also preloaded into the Jetstream.

The HTC Jetstream has a 10.1-inch multi-touch high-definition screen display for fascinating entertainment experience. The display has a resolution of 1280×800 pixels.

Its 7300-mAh battery pack provides up to 37.5 days of power on standby or idle mode. When in use, the HTC Jetstream can last up to 12 hours, even with Web browsing.

The HTC Jetstream weighs about 708.7 grams (25 oz) and has dimensions of 7 in x 9.87 in x 0.51 in. Its storage capacity can be expanded up to 32 GB through a built-in microSD card slot.

It supports GSM, GPRS, EDGE, and HSPA+ network technologies. The tablet also as inbuilt support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0, as well as integration with AT&T’s Data Connect 3G.

HTC Puccini tablet has a rear camera (8 megapixels) with dual-LED flash and a front camera (1.3 megapixels).

Like its smaller sibling, the HTC Flyer, the newer HTC Jetstream supports digital pen input through HTC Scribe.

    Contrary to what the author of the article says, $700 for a tablet WILL NOT SELL! I can buy an Awesome computer for that price. I can get my car a new Sound System for that price. AT&T or HTC must have lost their marbles if they think they will have a successful product at that price. W.T.F.

    What were they thinking???

      $700 is without the pen too! I’ll wait for the fire sale like HP did with the TouchPad.

    ,wow,. I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.
