If you've been dying for a blueprint-esque look at HTC's upcoming 10-inch "Puccini" (that's a code name) Android tablet, look no further than the FCC, which has taking the HTC Puccini for a spin. Most of us can't tell too much from this line drawing (at least it doesn't appear to have dual 3D cameras), but the FCC's testing does out 850MHz and 1900MHz radios, which seems to imply that we could possibly see this guy on AT&T at some point. And it's also got an LTE radio to boot, which lends credence to the idea that this could roll out along with AT&T's true 4G network (enhanced backhaul be damned!) later this year. On the other hand, releasing an LTE tablet that's only LTE in five cities -- remember that AT&T plans to light up Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta and San Antonio first -- makes only slightly more sense than releasing an LTE tablet that doesn't actually have LTE.
Also still on the fence: Exactly what Android version will this thing be running, and what sort of special sauce will HTC bring to it?
Anyhoo, the Android tablet machine marches on. This one whetting anyone's appetite just yet?
