    HTC Puccini tablet detailed: Honeycomb, 1.5GHz dual-core and LTE? - SlashGear

    By Chris Davies on Tue May 17th, 2011

    Details on what could well be HTC’s second Android tablet of 2011 have leaked, codenamed the HTC Puccini, and expected to be the company’s first Android 3.0 Honeycomb slate complete with AT&T LTE 4G support. According to 911HTC‘s info, the Puccini will have a 1280 x 800 WXGA display – just like the XOOM and other Honeycomb slates we’ve seen – and run Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM8660 1.5GHz dual-core processor.

    That’s the same chip as at the heart of the MSQUARE MDP, and going by Qualcomm’s promises is quite the potent chunk of silicon. The MSM8660 is tipped to have 5x the performance of the original Snapdragon, 4x the graphics performance, and use 75-percent less power. There’s also onboard LTE support, which is useful for AT&T’s fledgling 4G network; we’d already heard that LTE would be baked in, along with “Magic Pen” stylus support.

    That pen support seems to be confirmed by what are claimed to be screenshots from the HTC Puccini, showing the Sense-equipped UI with the Notes app present in the launcher at the bottom. It would appear that the tablet – which could have a 10.1-inch display, like the XOOM, or alternatively an 8.9-inch panel like the LG G-Slate – was running a similar build of Sense to the Flyer, since the UI is simply stretched out somewhat.

    HTC is expected to release at least two tablets after the Flyer in 2011, with a June launch previously rumored. The leaks come hot on the heels of our HTC Flyer review; check it out to see just how well HTC has handled the stylus.

    HTC to begin volume production of Puccini tablet PCs in June

    Yenting Chen, Taipei; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Thursday 26 May 2011]

    HTC has entered the final stages of testing for its 10.1-inch Puccini tablet PCs, with volume production slated for June 2011. The tablet will be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8660 1.5GHz processor and runs on Android 3.0.1, according to sources in the supply chain.

    Puccini will have a touch panel supporting both resistive and capacitive touch technologies and its touch pen will be able to work on specified software and areas, the sources noted.

    HTC is purchasing 10.1-inch touch panels from AU Optronics (AUO) and Wintek for Puccini tablets , while buying 7-inch panels from Cando and Wintek for its Flyer tablets, added the sources.

    AUO, after selling its holdings of a 19.9% stake in Cando to TPK Holdings, is integrating its production of touch sensors and touch modules in house, the sources revealed.
