The HTC Jetstream is a new Android Honeycomb tablet created by HTC and offered through AT&T cell phone service. With most Android tablet the carrier service is optional, as many enjoy using their tablet with just WiFi. This should be the same case with the HTC Jetstream. Since the HTC Jetstream is 4G and LTE (Long Term Evolution) compatible, you should be able to remove the SIM lock and use it with any GSM service provider you want. Although, this tablet is currently available from AT&T, we have not yet seen it for purchase anywhere else, such as online.
Our HTC Jetstream review will cover the basic features and specifications of the device. First off, the Jetstream’s design relatively larger with a 10.1 inch display. Like many of the latest pads and tablets, it has nice rounded corner. It does seem to come in a silver color with different sections on the back. The back of the device looks kind of ugly, but this definitely does not limit it’s performance. The HTC Jetstream specs show us some great hardware, such as: 8.0 MP camera (with dual-LED flash), 1.5 Ghz dual-core CPU (Qualcomm MSM8260), 32 GB storage, and 1 GB of RAM. These specs are quite impressive, even when compared to some of the other latest phones or tablets, such as the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Some additional features to note are the huge 7300 mAh, which should produce about 900 hours of stand-by time (not using it). Also it includes many ports such as USB and HDMI. The latest version of Android for tablets is Gingerbread v3.1 which is what is included here. This is a great high-end Android tablet, but it may cost a hefty price.
- Fast 1.5 Ghz dual-core processor from Qualcomm
- 1 GB of RAM
- Both front and back camera's for video chat, etc
- HDMI port included

No Voice Capability
According to phonearena, this tablet does not have GSM voice capability. For shame (especially at that price)!
Is Jetstream locked to ATT
Can you remove the supplied SIM and use another carriers sim when travelling overseas to avoid roaming data charges?
Expensive Android Tablet with AT&T
Unfortunately the HTC Jetstream is looking to pull around $699 USD, even with a contract from AT&T. My only guess is that it will cost even more without a one or two year agreement. Although it has great specs and is very fast, it may be worth waiting on for now.
High performance tablet revealed!
The HTC Jetstream was previously rumored as the HTC Puccini, but has been revealed by AT&T and HTC. Overall, it looks like a high-end device with the latest and greatest for performance specifications. This should be a great long-term device with long-lasting value considering it is LTE.
