T-Mobile is rolling out the Android ICS update for the SpringBoard tablet that it launched last year. The process starts today, Aug 15th, and an official notification should be out soon. If not, users can check the update section on their tablet devices themselves.
As for the tablet itself, the Springboard is a re-branded version of the Huawei MediaPad and is a pretty decent device in its own right. With a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor and a 1 GB RAM, the tablet can’t be considered a laggard, though the fact that there are better devices such as the Nexus 7 available at cheaper prices does damage its appeal. The tablet is 4G capable, boasts of a 1280 x 800 pixel display, and 16 GB of internal storage. It initially comes pre-loaded with Android 3.2 Honeycomb and the ICS update should polish things up for Springboard owners. The Springboard can be found at T-Mobile for $299 on contract.
