Despite seeing this bad boy making its way to the FCC not too long ago, we’ve been playing the guessing game for some time regarding its release. However, HTC CFO Winston Yung provided some subtle hints about it launching as soon as late September or early October while speaking to Chinese paper Liberty Times.
Naturally, it seems feasible since the tablet is mentioned to offer support for AT&T’s upcoming 4G LTE network, and as we’ve reported earlier today, AT&T is unleashing its 4G LTE mobile broadband devices starting on August 21st. Despite knowing that, the carrier continues to be tight lipped about giving the green light to its next-generation data network – albeit, it’s reported to go live soon after the roll out of its LTE broadband devices.
Frankly, we suspect that AT&T wouldn’t wait too long to get the HTC Puccini out when its network is finally fully operational – so yeah, that late September or early October is looking mightily nice.
