AT&T Announces $700 HTC Jetstream Tablet for September 4
And there you have it. AT&T has officially announced the 10-inch HTC Jetstream, a $700 Honeycomb-powered tablet. And yes, that’s with a two-year agreement. While it seems like an awful lot of money to come up with these times of economic uncertainty, there’s a lot of great ‘firsts’ in the tablet. It’s the first tablet to support AT&T’s 4G LTE/HSPA+ network, the first 10.1-inch tablet from HTC, and the first time AT&T will offer discounts based on a new data plan. Who are we kidding here, this thing is downright expensive. On a positive note, the HTC Scribe digital pen will be free for a limited time, saving consumers from shelling out another $80 in accessories.
Specifications fall right in line with longtime rumors, including a Snapdragon 1.5 GHz dual core processor, Android 3.1 Honeycomb (with HTC Sense™ UX for tablets), 8-megapixel camera with Dual LED Flash, and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. Internal storage is not listed on the press release but there’s microSD card expansion to add up to 32GB on top of whatever it is.
Customers will have multiple data plans to choose from come September 4th, including both pre and post-paid flavors. What’s more, the carrier is introducing a new $35/month 3G data bucket for a discounted tablet just as long as one is willing to sign a 2-year agreement.
- Postpaid: $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB. Customers on the 2 GB plan who exceed their monthly data allotment will be charged $10 per 1 GB of overage. Charges will appear on customers’ monthly wireless statements.
- Prepaid: $14.99 for 250 MB or $25 for 2 GB. Customers on the 2 GB plan who exceed their monthly data allotment may choose to purchase an additional 2 GB for $25. Charges will appear on customers’ credit card statements.
