HTC to begin Puccini mass production in June

The 10” tablet from HTC will see mass production starting next month

HTC Puccini, the 10.1” second tablet from HTC has been in news a lot of late, but mostly as rumors. It might be a reality after all, as Digitaimes reports that the tablet will see mass production staring next month.

The tablet is powered by a 1.5GHz MSM8660 processor and will run Honeycomb. Note that the Flyer also runs a 1.5GHz chip, although it has Gingerbread aka Android 2.3 instead of 3.0 which is more tablet-friendly.

HTC will get the 10.1” panels from AU Optronics and Wintek. Wintek stays common supplier between the Flyer and Puccini.

After the 7” Flyer was out and relatively well-received, it was only obvious for HTC to come up with a 10.1” version as these two are the most popular form-factors right now for tablets.
