The HTC Puccini tablet could actually be launching in late September or early October according to HTC CFO Winston Yung, while we still don’t know the full details of the tablet a possible release date like this is good news indeed. This news comes to us from DigiTimes reporting on Yung’s comments.
While he didn’t give any further details regarding hardware or the OS we have seen a few screenshots that recently leaked that give us an idea on what to expect come October. We do also have a few leaked specs of the Puccini but they may or may not be accurate and can be put in the rumor mill for now. They include a 10.1″ display like all the other Honeycomb tablets but they also suggest a 1.5 Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S3 CPU and AT&T 4G LTE.
The above FCC filing makes us believe 4G LTE from AT&T is on its way but other reports suggest that is still a few months off at best. According to our sources HTC will still have the stylus input method available on the Puccini as seen in recent leaks, but they wont be focusing on that aspect as it is mainly a touch input device like we all have learned to love. We can expect HTC Sense UI on Honeycomb like we saw here but for now we will have to keep waiting until the time gets closer. I am excited to finally see HTC join the Honeycomb party myself.
