The HTC Jetstream Tablet Is AT&T's First Tablet with 4G LTE

Illustration for article titled The HTC Jetstream Tablet Is ATTs First Tablet with 4G LTE

The HTC Jetstream, formerly known as the Puccini, is headed to AT&T on September 4th. It's running Android 3.1 on a 10.1-inch screen (nice!) and will be AT&T's first tablet with real 4G LTE (really nice!). For some reason though, it's going to cost $700 (ugh).

Not only that, the HTC Jetstream is "discounted" to $700 only after you sign up for a 2-year contract that requires a new $35/monthly plan that gives you 3GB worth of data to play around with. AT&T hasn't mentioned how much it'll cost without that $35/month plan.

Other specs of the Jetstream include a Snapdragon 1.5GHz dual core processor, front-facing camera, 8-megapixel rear camera, HTC scribe stylus pen (included for free for a limited time) and HTC Sense running on top of Android 3.1. Everything sounds so good but the price hurts so bad. [AT&T]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

Because the iPad is still the market leader (I believe), how do competitors expect to compete if they can't even price their tablets competitively w.r.t. the iPad?
