The 10.1" fingerprint-resistant display is top notch and it's a dual digitizer that's capacitive multi-touch plus an active digitizer that works with the HTC Scribe pen (included with the tablet during a promotional launch period, otherwise it costs $80).

Reviews Word on the street for the HTC Jetstream


8.0
In terms of UI customization, added software, build quality and materials, display quality and the digitizer pen, the HTC Jetstream looks very good vs. the competition.

6.0
Although it has good build quality and thoughtful button placement, the Jetstream's design still feels like it's from a bygone era.

7.0
Interface: For something sporting a mighty 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 1GB of RAM, we’re unimpressed by the tablet’s performance since it isn’t as responsive as we’d like.

Overall

7.1 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Network technology

Those are very impressive numbers, and we'll see how the network performs once more LTE devices are on the network.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
But for now, AT&T has only 5 metro regions blanketed with LTE, and they plan to add at least 15 more by the end of 2011 for an LTE network that would cover 70 million people.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
That will eventually give AT&T an edge over Verizon because Verizon's LTE falls back to a much slower EV-DO Rev. A 3G network with speeds that average 800k-1.4Mbps down.

Screen

In our tests we had both WiFi and LTE on and brightness set to auto (the Jetstream is quite bright on the auto setting, brighter than most tablets).

Trig display has an active digitizer that works with the HTC Scribe pen for drawing and note-taking.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
The display has haptic feedback, a rarity in 10" tablets because it's a power-hungry feature.

Camera

The iPad 2 has very low resolution cameras and though some Honeycomb tablets sport 5 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front cameras that look good on paper, image and video quality haven't been good.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
Continuing to show that it’s packing some serious hardware, the HTC Jetstream is blessed with an 8-megapixel sensor in the rear with dual-LED flash.

So far, tablet cameras haven't impressed us.

Operating System

AT&T scored an exclusive for the HTC Jetstream, perhaps the best Android Honeycomb tablet currently on the market, but the price to entry is high.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
An active digitizer is often used on Windows tablets, and it's great for more precise work vs. a capacitive stylus that has a wide footprint (typically 5 pixels or more).
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
If you're a fan of HTC Sense on Android phones, you'll love what HTC did with the Jetstream.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)

Operating system

That stability combined with the HTC Sense UI refinements and software additions make the tablet feel more friendly and immediately useful vs. vanilla Honeycomb tablets.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
On the software side, HTC has customized the tablet with HTC Sense software and added useful applications like Polaris Office (a full MS Office compatible suite), HTC Watch for movie download and purchase, a custom version of Evernote that works with the HTC Scribe pen, a PDF viewer that allows for pen annotations and many, many widgets.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2011)
AT&T software is kept to a minimum: there's AT&T Navigator (you can use your AT&T cell phone account, no need to pay for a second Navigator account), AT&T Family Maps, AT&T Code Scanner (a QR square bar code scanner), AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspots (free AT&T WiFi is included with their data plans) and Featured Apps.
