Excerpt: The HTC Flyer, a 7-inch tablet due for release in the US before the end of this month, was HTC‘s first foray into the tablet market. Now, details have emerged about HTC’s second tablet, the HTC Jetstream . HTC Jetstream: Screen & Processor The Jetstream will be a 10-inch, 1280 x 800 pixel tablet, shaped much like the Motorola Xoom, and featuring a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor under the hood.
Excerpt: HTC Jetstream aka Puccini is a 10.1-inch tablet running Android Honeycomb. It is also HSPA+ and LTE-enabled device with an 8-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, GPS, Bluetooth and a microSD memory card slot.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Conclusion: It is, again, unfortunate that this tablet will cost you seven bills. If you take away the price, on the other hand, you've got one of the nicest Android tablets on the market, complete with the most comprehensive and well-done user interface placed over Android Honeycomb yet - HTC's Sense is always welcome in devices in my house, as it were.
Summary: Additional comments: Battery stand-by time is well above the 32-day average. Although the audio file compatibility is limited, audio and video streaming is handled well with the fast processing speed.
Summary: The HTC Jetstream is a sleek Android tablet with a friendly interface. Unfortunately, its main draw, the HTC Scribe pen, doesn't work as well as advertised. But our biggest issue is the Jetstream's price. For $699 you get the tablet, as well as a two-year 4G data plan with AT&T. That's $70 more than a similarly equipped Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for Verizon, which is lighter and offers faster 4G speeds.
HTC Jetstream is AT&T’s first 4G LTE compatible tablet – we’ll wait until the price goes down, though
27 September 2011
Conclusion: HTC’s first 10 inch tablet could’ve turned into a success right off the bat, however the crazy price really makes it unviable as a choice – nobody would pay that much for just the 4G LTE support (which is actually spotty at best and the top speed isn’t much better than the usual 14.4 Mbps HSPA+ most of the time). Once the price goes down, this will make a great purchase, though, so we’ll have to wait or just buy the iPad 2.
Conclusion: The HTC Jetstream is the "be all that you can" tablet, with a price tag to match. Several years ago, that was Sony's thing: make the best but make it expensive. Now Sony's is releasing an average quality 10" Honeycomb tablet at an average price ($499) and HTC's taking the high road. We still think that AT&T added too much elevation to that road, but if you can afford the best and want a top notch 3G/4G Android tablet, it's the HTC Jetstream.
Pros: Top quality materials, friendly UI, fast LTE, great camera.
Cons: Expensive! No mobile hotspot feature for 4G sharing.

Excerpt: There’s plenty to love about the HTC Jetstream , at least on paper. It boasts one of the most impressive spec sheets found on a tablet computer, with features such as a 10.1-inch WXGA touchscreen display, 7300 mAh battery, and 4G LTE network support. It’s really quite feature-rich, and provides good value all around. Is it truly worth choosing over other tablets from more popular brand names in the worldwide tablet market, though?
