AT&T has announced that it has scored the exclusive on the new HTC Jetstream tablet. The new tablet will be the first 4G LTE and HSPA+ tablet on the market. The Jetstream will hit AT&T on September 4 and will be the first tablet available in the US that has Android 3.1 Honeycomb onboard. The tablet will be online and in retail stores on the 4th.

The screen of the Jetstream is a 10.1-inch HD resolution unit and the tablet runs a Snapdragon 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The tablet also has front and rear facing cameras. The front camera is a 1.3MP unit and the rear camera is an 8MP unit with dual LED flash. The battery inside the tablet is a 7,300 mAh unit and the tablet has a microSD card slot.

That microSD card slot supports up to 32GB cards. The tablet weighs in at 25 ounces and measures 7" L x 9.87" W x .51" deep. The tablet will sell for $699.99 with a new two-year data plan contract. The data plan can be postpaid at $14.99 for 250MB or $25 for 2GB monthly with $10 per gigabyte for overages. Prepaid contracts will cost the same monthly with the same data allowances with a charge of $25 per 2GB over the allotment.

“This tablet is a beautiful 10.1-inch, LTE powered masterpiece,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “When you combine powerful options like HTC Jetstream with our upcoming LTE technology and nationwide HSPA+ network, it flies.”

“HTC Jetstream combines the acclaimed HTC Sense experience with Android Honeycomb to provide an innovative and engaging experience on a 10.1 inch tablet,” said Martin Fichter, acting president, HTC Americas Region. “Paired with AT&T’s upcoming 4G LTE speed and mobility, HTC Jetstream delivers connectivity for social and entertainment needs alongside productivity and creativity tools in a portable package.”

    I hope this pricing is a joke.  $699 for a tablet hooked to an LTE network that doesn’t exist yet.  And you have to buy your own 32GB SD card – HTC doesn’t supply it!  Who came up with this pricing??

    If you expect customers to sign up for a 2 year data plan, this should be priced below $400.

    As
    expensive as the Jetstream from HTC is, I think it is worth the price, seeing
    as you get a fast dual-core processor, 4G, and a huge screen. It would be
    perfect for watching movies on. The Jetstream is on my list for my next tablet.
    I am a huge movie streamer, and I think the
    Jetstream would do great if I got one. I use the DISH Remote Access app for all
    my streaming needs. I love this app because it lets me stream live TV and
    recorded shows from my 922 SlingLoaded receiver to my phone anywhere I am in
    crystal clear HD! Whether I am on my way to school, or in another country, I
    can watch any channel I subscribe to. As a customer and employee of DISH
    Network, I have been using the app for a long time on my HTC Thunderbolt, and I
    know it will work wonders on the Jetstream!
