Pantech is rumored to be making a tablet for U.S. carrier AT&T, and that tablet is now pegged for an early 2012 launch. Neither companies had made any announcements about the tablet, but a Korean website is now saying that the slate is due with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and 4G LTE network connectivity, which would deliver robust download and upload speeds on AT&T’s network. AT&T so far has two tablets that support both 4G HSPA+ and the faster 4G LTE protocols; those tablets are the HTC Jetstream and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9.
The Pantech tablet is said to have an 8-inch display.
If the device referenced is the same as the P4100 model that’s been previously leaked and spotted at the FCC for U.S. regulatory approval, then it will have a dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU, SIM card slot, and front- and rear-facing cameras. The device will also have an HDMI output port and a micro SDHC card slot for expandable memory.
The device may see an introduction in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV.
The site also mentions that LG will be releasing a yet to be announced Optimus Pad LTE in 2012 as well.
