AT&T announced today the HTC Jestream 4G Tablet. HTC Jetstream is the AT&T’s first 4G LTE/HSPA+ tablet. The tablet runs the Android™ 3.1 (Honeycomb) operating system and represents the first iteration of the HTC Sense user experience on Honeycomb. HTC Jetstream offers a large 10.1” WXGA high-resolution display for an immersive entertainment experience, third-generation Snapdragon 1.5 GHz dual core processor for fast multi-tasking and instant screen refresh. The tablet is also compatible with HTC Scribe - an optional digital pen accessory, which is sold separately, - for content creation as well as Evernote integration for storing your documents in the cloud. Additionally, HTC Jetstream is preloaded with services optimized for the tablet such as AT&T Family Map, AT&T Navigator, HTC Watch, HTC Hub, Friendstream, Android Market, and much more.
“This tablet is a beautiful 10.1-inch, LTE powered masterpiece,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “When you combine powerful options like HTC Jetstream with our upcoming LTE technology and nationwide HSPA+ network, it flies.”
On September 4, the tablet will be available exclusively to AT&T customers online and in company-owned retail stores for a whopping $699.99 with a new two-year contract.
I am not sure why AT&T expects customers to pay $699.99 for this tablet on contract. I could not find the amount of storage the HTC Jetstream is configured with. I would be surprised if its more than 32GB. If it would have 64GB then the price is fine.
