CLEAR PICTURES of HTC's second tablet called Puccini have been leaked on the internet.

The strangely named Puccini appears to be on its way to the US via mobile operator AT&T, according to Engadget. The tablet will have a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and is clearly running Android Honeycomb.

Unlike the Flyer, the firm's upcoming tablet has a larger 10.1in touchscreen. It also has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal SSD storage and an 8MP camera with dual flash. The Puccini supports LTE 4G connectivity.


The design is extremely similar to that of the Flyer except the device is bigger. It seems to be running a development build based on the fact there are apps named 'Dev Tools' and 'HTC SSD Test'.

With no photo of the Honeycomb home screen we're not sure if the tablet has HTC's Sense overlay but we reakon it is likely that the Sense user interface will be featured like it is on every other HTC Android device. There is no sign of the dedicated stylus pen button that the Flyer has so we expect the Puccini won't have the digital pen.

It is unclear whether the tablet will tip up this side of the Atlantic, seeing as how the device uses LTE 4G technology, which we don't have available in the UK yet. HTC could produce a WiFi only version or a WiFi and 3G version for us Brits, however. The firm has done exactly that with the Evo 3D smartphone. µ
