New pictures of HTC Puccini give closer look at 10-inch Honeycomb Tablet

htc_puccini_back

There’s been a lot of Android tablet news going around lately, but the HTC Puccini has been noticeably absent from the headlines. Yes, the HTC Puccini did recently make an appearance at the FCC — but most of us were expecting HTC’s second tablet to be on the market by now.  We still don’t have a launch date, price or official spec sheet on the HTC Puccini, but Boy Genius has been able to dig up two new pictures of HTC’s 10-inch tablet.

From what we can tell, the HTC Puccini will be equipped with an 8 megapixel camera on the back, dual-LED flash, stereo speakers and a textured back cover.  Previous reports indicated the HTC Puccini will ship with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, HTC Scribe technology (notice the digital pen in the picture?), HTC Sense, Honeycomb and support for AT&T’s 4G LTE network.

We’re hoping things are pretty much wrapped up with the HTC Puccini, ‘cause our patience here is running pretty thin.  Are any of you waiting on the HTC Puccini? Or have you already purchased your Android tablet of choice?

    I can tolerate sense on my phone but on a tablet, I dont think I can

      Sense on the HTC Flyer makes that thing twice as good as the original Samsung Galaxy Tab. That being said, Sense would look completely out of place on a Honeycomb tablet. I know it would be a lot of work, but I’m hoping HTC will take Sense back to the drawing board and come up with a solution that’s not as intrusive for their Honeycomb tablets.

    The Tab 10.1 is still the slate to beat, I think.

  • Nathan

    who can buy one? but i think it going to be a a great slate compare to there last one

  • http://htcsource.com Nick Gray

    I’m hoping HTC has learned their lesson with the HTC Flyer and decides to price this thing right around $499 with the digital pen.

    Though i dont have any good REAL reasons to get a Tablet, i do want one. And if a AMAZING Android (must be android) comes out in the $499 price range, consider it bought. However with that high of a cost there are some NEEDs the tablet has to have. Definitely Vanilla android, no sense or any of that crap. Almost a guarantee it will continue to be updated not left in the dust after one update. And why the Tab 10.1 isnt good enough for me now is the lack of SD card slot and HDMI & USB port, because i will buy the smallest hard drive size, having expandable memory is a must. HDMI (ok even if mini-HDMI) so i can mirror my screen to a TV, and usb so i can connect a memory stick or other accessories. Now if all that+ a gorgeous screen, better than average front/rear cameras and great build quality means im paying $599 instead of $499? Thats except-able.
    But as of now, 95% of the Android tablets arent worth mentioning, the best is the 10.1 it seems and that one is missing too many features for me to consider getting it.
    Hopefully the iPad 2 HD does come out, and creates more competition and more drive for the Android tablets to stop half assing it, and put out some MAJORLY top notch products.

      Take a look at the Toshiba Thrive. HDMI, USB, full SD card port.

    • Ryan

      Acer Iconia A500
      Micro HDMI out, full USB as host and micro USB as slave, micro SD card up to 32GB (and the 16 GB internal memory version can be had for $300 from staples with the $100 off coupon floating around, good until the end of July)

      But it seems from your “I don’t need one but I want one” but want it to be a magical device angle means that you’re just here to complain about a product you never truly plan on buying.

      PS: it’s “acceptable”

        I think I’m in the same boat at @thel0nerang3r. I’m not ready to make my tablet purchase since I really have no need for it, but I’ll only be picking up a tablet does exactly what I want – regardless of the price.

        I hope HTC gets things right with the Puccini, but I’m willing to wait even longer to see how Ice-cream Sandwich turns out.

    As a flyer owner, I want this tablet. I love to draw, write, doodle, Mark up books, etc.. so products with scribe technology are perfect for me. They would sync with the evernote application. Sense on the flyer is really good, so if they do well with honeycomb I’m gonna grab it.

  • gad

    It’s the price that’s gonna kill this tablet, before it actually takes off

  • Mr Guzz

    I will pass this and wait for the “Nexus” Tablet….thx.

  • pokemontrainer4life

    I really hope/think that’s not the actual design. It’s ugly and very unlike HTC.
    They wouldn’t go from a nicely built, aluminum Flyer, to a plasticky, textured body Puccini. (It looks like plastic to me, at least)
    And that camera is definitely not HTC’s style.

    I hardly ever trust BGR with this type of stuff. :3

      While the texture make it look like plastic, the thickness around the slots give the impression that it will be an aluminum case. Also, the image shown from the FCC filing matches up pretty nicely to the image above. The only real difference is the placement of the HTC logo.
