Firmware sings of second HTC tablet

LTE-connected Puccini to run Android 3.0.1

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Deep digging into HTC's firmware has revealed a thus far unknown device, Puccini, said to be a 10in tablet.

The data comes from Asian site 911HTC.com. That Puccini is a tablet is suggested by the screen resolution info: 800 x 1280.

The data also show it has a 1.5GHz CPU - named as the MSM8660, a look-up revealing it to be a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor of said clockage.

Puccini will run Android 3.0.1 and connect to the net over LTE 4G networks.

When the tablet will appear isn't known, but an H2 2011 seems likely. That may well annoy some who have gone for HTC's 7in, 600 x 1024 Flyer, which runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread also on a 1.5GHz CPU. ®
