Rogers to soon launch an LTE enabled HTC Puccini?
A leaked document obtained by Mobile Syrup shows that Canadian carrier Rogers plans on bringing back the Puccini name on its variant of HTC's 10.1 inch Android tablet. The HTC Puccini was given the moniker HTC Jetstream for its launch on AT&T last week. Rogers has said that it would be launching an LTE tablet from an important manufacturer and this fits the bill. If the document is legitimate (and it appears to be, even with the misspelling of the Puccini name) the device will be known as the HTC Puccini LTE.

If launched, the HTC Puccini LTE will be the first tablet on Rogers to use LTE for 4G speeds. Previously, the carrier launched the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G, but that tablet received its 4G support from the carrier's HSPA+ pipelines.

The HTC Puccini LTE is equipped with a 10.1 inch screen, allowing it to compete with the aforementioned Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and other full sized tablets like the Apple iPad 2. The screen's resolution is 1280 x 786 and a Qualcomm MSM8260 dual-core 1.5GHz processor is driving the tablet which has 1GB of RAM aboard. An 8MP camera on back is equipped with AF and dual LED flash while the front-facing shooter weighs in at 1.3MP. 32GB of internal storage can be doubled with a 32GB microSD card and the tablet offers HTC's Scribe Technology which allows you to use a special pen to draw and take notes all over the screen. Android 3.1 is pre-installed on the device.

Rogers has not yet officially introduced the HTC Puccini LTE, so there is no price tag or information on availability. As a point of comparison, as we told you, AT&T is offering the HTC Jetstream for $699.99 with a signed 2-year contract and $849.99 without a pact.
