Unlike other main players in the Android ecosystem – including Motorola, Samsung and LG – HTC has kept a rather low profile when it comes to Android tablets. The company launched two devices last year, the 7-inch HTC Flyer (branded as the EVO View 4G in the U.S. by Sprint) and the 10-inch HTC Jetstream (an AT&T exclusive 4G LTE device), but neither model managed to successfully compete against the iPad, or any other Android tablet for that matter. But it appears that HTC is not quite ready to give up the fight in the tablet department. The company has told PC…

HTC's Flyer and Jetstream tablets weren't so popular in the market, but HTC is rumored to have tablet plans in its future.

  HTC, like Motorola, was one of the first and only companies to get the Android tablet pricing completely wrong. Both of their tablets started out with a price between $600 and $800, even though HTC’s tablet was only 7″, and it had a single core processor, which doesn’t look like a subtle way of telling their audience why they should pay more for their tablet than the competition. Why did this happen? Probably because HTC was still inexperienced with building tablets (the HTC Flyer was pretty thick, too), and also because both them and Motorola thought that they can…

Thanks to DooMLoRD, member of the XDA-Developers forum, it is now possible to push the limits of the HTC Jetstream’s CPU to 2 GHz with the help of a custom kernel. The first kernel of its kind for the HTC Jetstream, this kernel comes with a number of features, such as: CPU overclocked to 2.05 GHz CPU underclocked to 192 MHz GPU overclocked to 320 MHz For safe booting, the CPU is capped to bootup to a maximum of 1.53 GHz and a minimum of 384 MHz, slightly undervolted (at least to stock frequencies) Uses LZMA compression Added a lot…

The HTC Jetstream, also known previously as the HTC Puccini, has just been released on AT&T as their first LTE tablet. Despite having a great form factor, and HTC’s great name and reputation for producing quality goods behind it, it’s looking like it will be something of a flop, however. Why, you may ask? The reason is simple: price. It is carrying a price of $699 if purchased with a two year contract, and the price of $849.99 if purchased outright. Still, if money is no object, it’s one of the most powerful Android tablets on the market currently, and…

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…

Formerly known as the HTC Puccini, the latest tablet coming out of HTC’s goody bag will be called the HTC Jetstream when it arrives on AT&T this September 4. The mobile carrier recently announced the availability of the tablet as its first 4G LTE/HSPA+ tablet and the first to feature Android 3.1 Honeycomb. The earlier release date for the tablet comes as a surprise, since an HTC official confirmed in mid-August that the HTC Puccini will be launched in late September or early October. The HTC Jetstream will be exlusively available starting September 4 at AT&T’s company-owned retail stores and…

AT&T’s very first LTE-capable tablet, the HTC Puccini, just posed for the cameras. Engadget got the photos from an anonymous tipster who emailed them. Engadget‘s source claims that the tablet is currently still being tested. The source also confirmed that the tablet will be getting a 1.5-GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, Android 3.x Honeycomb, 16 GB of internal storage, and WXGA-resolution 10.1-inch touchscreen. Earlier reports say that the HTC Puccini’s processor will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660, one of the dual-core processors that version 3.2 of Android Honeycomb supports. So, it is also likely for Android 3.2 Honeycomb…
