HTC Jetstream Honeycomb tablet: Hands-on pictures
Though the HTC Jetstream, a 10.1-inch Android 3.0 tablet, isn't destined for the UK (for now...) we couldn't not resist taking a peek at Honeycomb on a tablet that's been given the HTC Sense treatment.
As you'd expect, Sense on the Jetsream, practically redraws the Honeycomb look and feel from every angle, switching out the default keyboard for a more familiar HTC one, adding HTC Watch and that trademark rainbow pastel colour background.
Lookswise it's somewhat of a toss-up between Motorola's chunky metallic Xoom and Samsung's super slim and uber light Galaxy Tab 10.1.
It's got a curved camera unit on the back that houses an 8-megapixel beast (a bit excessive for a tablet perhaps?) and the back is covered in a brushed metal effect covering.
We dutifully snapped the HTC Jetstream from a number of angles while having a peek around at its various menus.
Processor-wise it's got the same 1.5GHz speed as the single-core one that blazes away inside the HTC Flyer and it'll support the Magic Pen active stylus that comes with the Flyer as well. Sadly, there wasn't one on hand at Qualcomm's stand for us to play around with. But we expect much of the same functionality as that of the Flyer in this department.
