HTC has already tasted tablet waters with its Flyer though its no secret the 7 incher failed to make the kind of splash that the Taiwan based company had hoped for, leaving it to its bigger 10 inch brethren, the Puccini to do it this time. The Puccini too is on its way, having cleared the FCC under the guise of model number PG09410 and seems headed straight to the AT&T camp.
However, as it usually is with FCC listings, there isn’t a whole lot of information available just yet to be excited about though there are sure are some clear indication. Like the tablet looks all set to be the inaugural tablet for AT&T’s LTE network on both 700 and 1700MHz bands. This apart, the Puccini will also be compliant with GSM 850, 1900MHz frequencies and 3G WCDMA 850 and 1900MHz bands, which in clear terms will mean the tablet to support AT&T’s existing 3G network.
Hard facts apart, rumors surrounding the tablet points out to a dual core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor as the tablet’s heart. The tablet will have a 10 inch screen having a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It is also perhaps safe to bet the tablet will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb while the tablet is expected to feature a user interface akin to the Sense 3.0 layer that greets one on the Flyer tablet.
No word yet as to when the Puccini is expected to hit markets though here too, it is rumored to make its debut by late summer.
