HTC Jetstream Announced: 10.1" Honeycomb Sense Tablet (Formerly HTC Puccini)
HTC have just announced their new tablet, the HTC Jetstream (aka the HTC Puccini), coming 4th September on AT&T in the USA, the tablet will cost $699.99, which sounds quite expensive to me. Have HTC not learnt from the Flyer pricing?
The Jetstream will have a 10.1" WXGA HDscreen, android 3.1, dual core 1.5Ghz Snapdragon CPu, Dual LED 8MP camera and a huge battery. It will also be running Sense on top of Honeycomb! I'll be fun to see exactly what HTC have come up with for the UI. The tablet will also support HTC's scribe pen.
