The HTC Jetstream is now available from AT&T.
The Honeycomb-based tablet can be purchased from the carrier for $699.99 with a two-year contract or for $849.99 sans the contract. However, those purchasing the device with a two-year service agreement are required to also buy a data plan, with the minimum plan starting at $35 per month.
The first non-modem device for AT&T’s LTE network, the Jetstream sports a 10.1-inch 1280 x 768 display and features an 8MP rear-facing camera with dual LED flash and a front-facing 1.3MP shooter. In addition, the high-speed tablet packs a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and comes equipped with a Sense UI design, specifically meant for the tablet’s larger size. Like its 7-inch cousins, the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G, the Jetstream features Scribe support, with AT&T promising to bundle in the stylus for a limited time only.
The AT&T slate also comes preloaded with the carrier’s Family Map and Navigator, along with HTC’s Watch and Friendstream apps.
With AT&T’s LTE network only available in five cities, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, the Jetstream’s high-speed connectivity won’t be useful to customers outside of those markets until AT&T LTE spreads. For those interested in buying the device without a commitment plan, the initial cost plus one-year of minimum data usage — $14.99 for 250MB per month– will cost $1,029.87.
