Taiwan’s HTC unveils 4G tablet
TAIPEI—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-centimeter) 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.
