Review

On September 4, AT&T made the big revelation of its new HTC Puccinni, officially named as HTC Jetstream, an incredibly steep price tag of $700 for a two-year data plan. Do not raise those eyebrows yet, this tablet surely has lots to offer. This is AT&T’s first Honeycomb tablet and has created some surprise in the market, so New Tablet Reviews jumped on the opportunity to create a HTC Jetstream tablet review.

Breaking New Grounds

The HTC Jetstream tablet comes with the latest 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) and HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access) technology, soaring with its ultraspeed data processing rates as this is engineered to be the successor of the present generation of the UMTS 3G technology. While this service is the first and only from AT&T, Jetstream owners are the only ones to take pleasure from such speed, not even the renowned iPad users are entitled for this service. A digital pen input is in the HTC Jetstream tablet’s support system allowing users to draw, take note and affix signature in its 10.1-inch wide touchscreen. This free scribe pen will come for every purchase of the tablet for a limited time.

The HTC Jetstream tablet weighs about 1.5 pounds, 7 inches tall, 9.87-inch distance across and almost half an inch in thickness, a conventional look amongst android tablets. The HTC Jetstream highlights the third generation Snapdragon dual core processor running at a clock speed of 1.5 GHz, the fastest of its kind. In terms of the camera, the high resolution lenses will be perfect in delivering crystal clear images suitable for video calling or ordinary picture taking plus it capture details in dark places with its dual LED flash. Battery life is guaranteed to be longer than that of Samsung Galaxy tab and Apple iPad2 with 500 MAH battery advantage known to last for approximately 15 hours of continued use. The HTC Jetstream Tablet is preloaded with applications like Adobe Flash Player, AT&T Family Map, AT&T Navigator, HTC Watch, HTC Hub, Friendstream, and Android Market. Social apps will never be left unmentioned in a high-end tablet, HTC Jetstream supports social networking sites namely FaceBook, Twitter, Gmail, MySpace, GTalk, Picasa, YouTube, Google Search and the like.

 

Conclusion

In the horizon of this fast growing industry of tablet computers, customers are willing to pay for the ones that will wrap up all their needs for the price that will fit their budget. A number of lower-priced tablets are more likely to be adopted by consumers. Considering the tough competition on Android tablet market with Apple, Samsung, DELL tablets around that have well established its reputation, the HTC Jetstream Tablet may find it difficult to make a significant impact in the market. However, with the HTC Jetstream jam-packed features such as the fastest processor at present, high definition camera (one of the most best around), latest android 3.1 Honeycomb software, 4G LTE connectivity and potent battery, this tablet is definitely a powerful one. Perhaps, with such credentials and enough advertisements, the HTC Jetstream tablet will become a mainstream hit in the tablet market for a while.
