Specs leak out for HTC's upcoming 10-inch tablet

By on May 17, 2011, 11:00 AM

Back in March we saw the first hint that HTC's Flyer tablet would be getting a Honeycomb-powered 10-inch sibling at some point during June. Although details are still rather sketchy, a recent leak suggests it will sport a 1280 by 800 resolution, a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon MSM8660 dual-core processor, Android 3.0.1, and even LTE connectivity.

The yet to be announced device is reportedly codenamed "Puccini", presumably after famous Italian composer Giacomo Puccini, which some have taken as an indication that it will focus heavily on media functionality.

While the 7-inch HTC Flyer runs Google Android 2.3 and a version of the HTC Sense UI optimized for tablets, the HTC Puccini will use a new version of HTC Sense designed to work with Honeycomb tablets. It currently appears to run Android 3.0.1, although HTC may update the software to Android 3.1 before launch. Also, based on the recently leaked screenshots, it appears that the Puccini will feature support HTC's Scribe stylus for sketching and note-taking.

If previous leaks are anything to go by the HTC Puccini could land sometime in June, which coincides with other rumors suggesting that AT&T may finally flip the switch on its first LTE market on that month.
