HTC Puccini Coming To AT&T With LTE

Posted by Hooch Tan in "Digital Home News" @ 02:00 PM

"Have a gander. Take as long as you need. That, friends, is the AT&T-bound HTC Puccini, and it'll be the first tablet to hit Ma Bell with inbuilt LTE support. According to our sources, the Android-based slate is currently in testing, and should be hitting the markets in the not-too-distant future."

Can you imagine if we were all still stuck with GPRS speeds? As good a start as it was, the increase in speeds for our mobile wireless activities has payed a really large role in our adoption of smartphones and what they are capable of. Of course, we now see speeds where we can stream HD movies, share pictures in the blink of an eye and exceed our data caps in mere hours. The only complaint that I have with tablets and netbooks having built in LTE or wireless data connections for that matter is that they usually tend to be tied to specific carriers. Yes, each carrier uses different technologies or frequencies, but if an expensive device like a modern tablet is going to have wireless connectivity, why not make it compatible with more carriers so that if one does not fit your liking, you can always change?

HTC Puccini, er, Jetstream, er, Skyrocket Tablet in the Pipeline

"The HTC Puccini tablet now has an official name attached to it – the HTC Jetstream, as discovered in a new screenshot of the settings menu showing the name of the tablet, and another screenshot showing the AT&T logo confirming the carrier (once again). That name is expected to be unique to AT&T where it’ll clearly launch with 4G LTE given all we’ve seen in the past. It’s expected to have a different name internationally, which is not known yet but one possible candidate is the “HTC Skyrocket”."

Here's some speculation about an AT&T 4G LTE tablet arriving in North America on or about September 1, 2011. Configured with a 10.1-inch 1280x800 screen, optional Pen Scribe input, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (1.2 GHz or 1.5GHz), an 8MP rear-facing camera, and, of course, the 4G LTE radio, it appears to be similar to many other tablets out there. No details on price were posted. Why do carriers feel that they have to rename (almost) every product? Wouldn't Puccini work here? Just wondering.

Another Tablet on the way from HTC...Meet the Puccini

"Details on what could well be HTC’s second Android tablet of 2011 have leaked, codenamed the HTC Puccini, and expected to be the company’s first Android 3.0 Honeycomb slate complete with AT&T LTE 4G support."

One thing that sets this tablet apart from the others is that instead of a Tegra 2 HTC chose to use a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. That CPU uses an Adreno 220 GPU which should be very fast. With that high clock speed and good GPU it will be interesting to see if this is a Tegra 2 killer. It will also have AT&T 4G LTE support built in. One plus or minis depending on whether or not you like the HTC Sense interface is that HTC has it on the Puccini. Personally, I would much rather have the original Honeycomb interface but I shouldn't knock it until I try it. Make sure to hit the "Read" link below for the rest of the details. What do you think of the HTC Puccini? Does it seem to be a tablet that you would consider?
