AT&T customers will soon be able to purchase the company's first 4G LTE/HSPA+ tablet, the HTC Jetstream.
features a 10.1" WXGA HD screen with a third-generation Snapdragon 1.5GHz dual-core processor. 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
), and is expected to improve browsing, multi-tasking, notifications and customization for Jetstream users. In addition, the new platform will offer access to Google Talk with video chat via Wi-Fi, over three million Google eBooks, incognito mode for Web browsing and
5.0 with 3D-like interaction.
"HTC Jetstream combines the acclaimed HTC Sense experience with Android Honeycomb to provide an innovative and engaging experience on a 10.1-inch tablet," said Martin Fichter, acting president of HTC Americas Region. "Paired with AT&T's upcoming
speed and mobility, HTC Jetstream delivers connectivity tools in a portable package."
HTC Jetstream will come preloaded with AT&T Family Map, HTC Hub, HTC Watch, Friendstream, AT&T Navigator and Android Market.
The new 4G LTE/HSPA+ tablet will be available exclusively to AT&T customers on September 4, 2011. The price for tablets purchased online or in company-owned retail stores is $699.99 with a two-year contract. AT&T postpaid customers will have a new $35, 3GB monthly data plan option with their two-year contract, but those who do not want a long-term commitment have the following options: Postpaid customers can pay $14.99 for 250MB or $25 for 2GB, and those who exceed their monthly data will be charged $10 per 1GB of overage. Prepaid customers can pay $14.99 for 250MB or $25 for 2GB as well, but have the option to purchase an additional 2GB for $25 if they run over their monthly data allotment. All charges will appear on a single monthly wireless statement.

Maybe the first 4G tablet to run Android 3.1. A whole bunch of tablets are on Android 3.2 now.
