No disrespect to the HTC Flyer, but it is clearly an experiment on HTC’s part where the tablet market is concerned. Their maiden attempt isn’t to say cheap either, retailing for around $499 in most markets, so to hear of a third tablet from the Taiwanese manufacturer is definitely worth reporting on. We are talking about the HTC Puccini, where it will come after the rumored HTC Verdi with both of them taking on the names of famous Italian composers. Of course, they will be 10″ models that are powered by Google’s Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system, and the HTC Puccini is tipped to be compatible with AT&T’s upcoming 4G LTE network, featuring a front-facing camera to boot as you hold conference calls over it.
It must be noted that AT&T is not tipped to roll out their 4G network at least until later this year, so HTC has some time to release an AT&T-friendly version of the HTC Puccini until late summer rolls around.
The HTC Puccini will also sport the HTC Scribe feature with digital pen input, and there is no word on its pricing or availability as at press time. We can definitely look forward to a price point that is higher than $499, that’s for sure. If you’re looking out for a tablet, which model would you go for at the moment? Will you hold out for the Puccini or take your chances with the HTC Flyer?
