HTC Puccini and Holiday coming to ATT
AT&T is lining up a pair of HTC devices for the near future that could see the carrier get its first major 10-inch tablet alternative to the iPad, a pair of leaks showed. Nicknamed the Puccini, it would be one of the first truly 4G devices on the network and use LTE. It's presumed by PocketNow that the device would use Android 3.0 and support the Scribe pen support from HTC's smaller Flyer.
A phone, the Holiday, has fewer details. It superficially resembles the Aria. Very little has been shown, but it may have a front-facing camera and could have at least 14.4Mbps or 21Mbps data.
The Puccini was hinted as possibly shipping in June. Speculation has put the Holiday in the summer.
AT&T has been offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab as an alternative to the iPad, but its small size and high relative price has largely kept the Android device out of contention. The Puccini would be its first more direct option and would be HTC's first real full-size tablet.
