Default AT&T Offers Tablet Goodness at Jetstream Speeds

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=20875&cdvn=news&newsarticleid=32643&mapcode=wireless-networks-general|community' target='_blank'>http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?p...neral|community</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Exclusive to AT&amp;T customers, HTC Jetstream is the company&rsquo;s first 4G LTE/HSPA+ tablet.&nbsp; It runs the Android&trade; 3.1 (Honeycomb) operating system and represents the first iteration of the HTC Sense&trade; user experience on Honeycomb.&nbsp; HTC Jetstream boasts a large 10.1&rdquo; WXGA high-resolution display for an immersive entertainment experience, third-generation Snapdragon 1.5 GHz dual core processor for fast multi-tasking and instant screen refresh."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1315403595.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>In the US and Canada, vendor lock-in used to be quite common, and is still prevalent in many ways.&nbsp; Do people remember when the iPhone was restricted to just AT&amp;T?&nbsp; Well, the HTC Jetstream is the latest in AT&amp;T exclusives, though I suspect it will not have quite a draw as the coveted iPhone.&nbsp; Still, showcasing an LTE network is pretty enough as it is.&nbsp; I wonder if there is much use for it yet, through a tablet.&nbsp; When I think tablet, the highspeed demands I think of are things like streaming videos or watching a large slideshow of pictures from my friend who recently went on vacation that he just had to share with me because it truly was a wonderful trip that everyone should know about.&nbsp; Short of HD streams, which would blow one's wireless data cap in short order, what is the use again?</p>

I think you meant "Goodness" in the title

As to the tablet needs for 4G, I personally like surfing on the 3G iPad I have from work. Its more comfortable web-browsing on the eyes and it saves my phone data for email and attachments.
