HTC Puccini Custom Sense UI Screens Surface

A new 10-inch Android tablet to be looking out for is the HTC Puccini. The tablet’s been keeping low, but its imminent launch can’t be missed with the recent FCC approval and some leaked press shots. Today, however, we get even an even closer look with leaked screenshots of its custom HTC Sense tablet UI.

The HTC Puccini could be the very first 4G LTE tablet for AT&T, but given that AT&T may have at most 15 4G LTE markets by year-end, that may not be a huge deciding factor for many folks. The tablet is expected to come with a 1.5GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor running Android Honeycomb. However, no official details have been confirmed yet.

But as for its custom interface, it looks like the HTC Puccini will have plenty of AT&T bloatware preloaded, including AT&T Code, AT&T Family, AT&T MyText, and AT&T Navigation. It also appears that HTC has added its own stylus icon on the bottom of the screen where we typically expect the multitask switcher icon. This confirms the inclusion of Scribe, meaning the tablet will have a stylus-capable multi-touch display similar to the smaller HTC Flyer.

Additonally, HTC’s custom interface adds a full ten-key number pad to the right of its virtual keyboard. Although not much else is known about the tablet, it’s expected to hit later this year in time for the holidays.
