    The HTC Jetstream 4G LTE Android tablet (formerly known as the Puccini) will be officially launching on AT&T's network on September for a whopping $700 Bucks on-contract! Here's a refresher of the specs and a press release below:
    • 10.1-inch “HD” display
    • 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
    • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash in back
    • Android 3.1 (Honeycomb) with HTC’s Sense user interface
    • AT&T will include the HTC Scribe pen at no cost for a limited time
    What do you guys think? HTC makes some great products, but does this one warrant a price that is even more than the Motorola Xoom when it first launched?

    $700!? That's the same price as the most expensive ipad 2 version. No way this thing will compete with the other [hundreds of dollars cheaper] android tabs....

    Even with those specs, it's still pretty pricey. Isn't the Snapdragon dual core really bad? I mean can't a overclocked Xoom save you a lot more?

    Most expensive iPad 2 is $829. That's the 3G model.

    yeah 64gb 3g version.

    Still though no Tablet on the face of the planet right now is worth more than a mid level laptop. There is no excuse to be selling these Tablets this expensive. Even the iPad atleast has cheaper alternatives with the 16gb and 32gb versions. I don't care if it has the most up to date specs as far as tablets are concerned. I can go buy a laptop with a processor 4 times that fast, better graphics cards, just as portable for that price.

    Has to make one wonder what something like the Vigor or the supposed 4.7" phone will retail for.
