The Springboard will be there for the taking from the 9th of November, revealed T-Mobile. However, while that takes care of one aspect of the 7 inch tablet’s launch story, the other aspect, and an important one at that, the price is yet anybody’s guess. Rumor mills though are pegging the price at around the $200 mark which, if it turns out to be true won’t be a bad thing.
The tablet, which essentially is the Huwaei MediaPad but rebranded as the Springboard sports a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm SnapDragon dual core processor with a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen display up-front. Other technical specification of the tablet includes GPS, along with five megapixel and 3.2 megapixel cameras integrated along the front and the rear of the tablet respectively. The OS is Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb for the tablet.
Users would also have access to T-Mobile’s 4G broadband network via the HSPA+ radio feature available on the device.
T-Mobile has also announced that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be available for their customers from 2nd November. With a 1 GHz Tegra 2 processor at it heart, the bigger Galaxy Tab 10.1 also complies with T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network which the carrier is billing as 4G. T-Mobile has however not indicated the price for this device too.
