It has been a while since we last heard any details on the rumored HTC Puccini tablet, but we now have an update for you. It has been reported that the Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet device is still on course for a release sometime during the Summer.
Aside from the release date update, we’re also hearing that the HTC Puccini will have support for 4G LTE data speeds, and will be equipped with a 1.5Ghz Qualcomm MSM8660 single-core processor. Furthermore, an article published by Digitimes states that two companies AU Optronics and Wintek have been assigned with duties to supply the 10.1-inch display panels for the device.
Will the Puccini end up being an exclusive for AT&T, or will HTC try to push this out on Verizon as well to maximize sales? We’re a bit disappointed upon hearing that the Puccini may come with a single-core processor, just like the HTC Flyer. It seems as if HTC favor the single core option as opposed to dual-core like every other tablet manufacturer on the market.
Are you saving your money for the HTC Puccini, or have you already spent your money on a Motorola Xoom, G-Slate or iPad 2? We’ll inform you when we have fresh details to give you.
