Taiwan's HTC unveils 4G tablet
Thursday 01 September 2011
Taiwan's leading smartphone maker HTC unveiled its first tablet device with 4G telecommunications technology on Thursday.
Fourth generation - 4G - technology provides high-speed broadband wireless services and higher quality image and data services.
The HTC Jetstream is due to hit the US market on Sunday, offered by telecom giant AT&T for $699.99 with a two-year contract, the manufacturer said.
The tablet will be equipped with a 10.1-inch (26 centimetre) screen and use Google's Android 3.1 platform.
Analysts are not expecting big sales as the next generation telecommunication technology, Long Term Evolution (LTE), has yet to penetrate the market significantly.
