As we’ve already heard the HTC tablet, code named “Puccini” is headed to AT&T and will be the first tablet for AT&T’s 4G/LTE network. It was reported earlier this month that when the Puccini gets to AT&T it will take on the name “Jet Stream”. The name Jetstream expands upon HTC’s “Flyer” name and could have also been chosen because of it’s 4G/LTE capability. AT&T is rolling out 4G/LTE to 5 cities before the end of 2011.

Underneath the hood (or should we say the plane’s engine) there is a 1.5ghz dual core processor, 1280×800 pixel display and Android 3.x. The 10″ tablet will also feature an 8 mega pixel camera on the back and a front facing camera for video chat. It was also reported earlier that the HTC Puccini/Jet Stream will also utilize the HTC Scribe digital pen.
We’ve seen lots of pics of the software running on the HTC Puccini/Jet Stream and so far we haven’t seen any pictures with HTC’s Sense UI. At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain last February HTC unveiled a new version of Sense designed specifically for tablets. The HTC Flyer features that tablet version of Sense on top of Android 2.3 but as you can see here, the Puccini doesn’t, at least not in the pictures. Earlier reports on the HTC Puccini also showed that the tablet’s virtual keyboard will feature a numeric keypad and a more optimum keyboard layout.
