That HTC Jetstream that we managed to get our hands around early? It's on sale! AT&T is now shipping their latest Honeycomb tablet, and while it's one of the fastest slates we've ever touched, it's also one of the most expensive. The LTE radio definitely sets it apart, but given that AT&T has only five LTE markets to showcase right now (three of which are in Texas), it's hard to recommend this unit based on heightened wireless speeds alone. The no-contract pricing on this guy is a staggering $849.99, which overshoots the iPad and just about everything else by a mile. The 2-year contract... Read more...

You might say that the world simply doesn't need another media streaming device. And you could be right. But could we use another streaming device that actually does something different and unique? Yeah, we could get into that. JetStream HD might be that device. Rather than being a software solution, this is actually a software + hardware combination.
