HTC Jetstream

AT&T has finally unwrapped HTC's first Honeycomb tablet -- the 10.1-inch Jetstream. This puppy's been leaked every which way to Sunday, and specs are largely as we've previously seen.

Here's the breakdown:

  • LTE (700/AWS)
  • HSPA+/HSPA/UMTS (850/1900/2100 MHz)
  • EDGE/GPRS (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • Android 3.1 (Honeycomb)
  • HTC Sense™ UX for tablets
  • Display: 10.1” WXGA HD screen
  • Processor: Third-generation Snapdragon 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • Camera: Front Facing 1.3 MP, Rear facing 8 MP and Dual LED Flash
  • Battery: 7,300 mAh
  • Expandable Memory: MicroSD up to 32 GB
  • Dimensions: 7” (l) x 9.87” (w) x 51” (d)
  • Weight: 25 ounces

It's also got the HTC Scribe writing feature, which isn't a huge surprise since HTC outed it previously in its Honeycomb SDK.

Now, let's talk pricing. This is all a little new since AT&T's just now launching its LTE network in a scant few cities. The Jetstream itself retails for a whopping $699 with two-year contract. Then you have to consider a data plan. And you've got three options there:

  • A $35, 3 GB-a-month deal with a two year contract.
  • Month-by-month post-paid (as in it shows up on your bill) contracts of $14.99 for 250MB, or $25 for 2 GB. If you have the 2GB plan and go over, you'll be charged $10 per extra GB.
  • Month-by-month prepaid service with the same pricing as the post-paid plan, only if you go over the 2GB plan, you can purchase another 2GB for $25. You'll be billing all this directly to your credit card.

Interesting choices, indeed, though the relatively small footprint of AT&T's budding LTE network and that $699 price point on the tablet itself are going to cause a bit of heartburn.
