It weighs 25 ounces, supports Adobe Flash Player, has an expandable memory of up to 32GB and has a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera as well as a rear facing 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash. In addition, HTC Jetstream will utilize the HTC Sense UX graphical user interface for tablets.
"This tablet is a beautiful 10.1-inch, LTE-powered masterpiece," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of 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."
HTC Jetstream is not only AT&T's first 4G LTE/HSPA+ tablet, but also the first 4G tablet to run on the Android 3.1 Honeycomb operating system. This particular OS was made specifically for mobile devices with larger screens (
such as tablets

speed and mobility, HTC Jetstream delivers connectivity tools in a portable package."
