T-Mobile SpringBoard hands-on

T-Mobile SpringBoard hands-on

We are on the CTIA Enterprise & Applications show floor in San Diego and just quickly swung by Huawei’s booth to check out one of T-Mobile’s latest tablets, the SpringBoard. This Huawei-built slate is definitely one of the best looking 7-inch tablets we’ve seen yet. The back and sides of the tablet feel like aluminum and, while it’s a bit heavy like the T-Mobile G-Slate, the SpringBoard’s thin form factor adds to its attractiveness. The tablet runs Android Honeycomb and is equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p HD video and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat. T-Mobile has yet to announce pricing or a launch date, but we’re definitely looking forward to spending more time with the SpringBoard. Be sure to check out the photo gallery below.

T-Mobile unveils Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, T-Mobile SpringBoard tablets

T-Mobile continues to bolster its device portfolio in anticipation of the fast-approaching holiday season — when it will be the only major carrier in the U.S. without Apple’s iPhone in its lineup — and the carrier on Monday announced the upcoming addition of two new tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will serve as the T-Mobile’s new flagship tablet, featuring a 10.1-inch display, Android 3.1 Honeycomb, a 3.2-megapixel camera, 32GB of storage and a hefty 7,000 mAh battery. BGR reviewed the Galaxy Tab 10.1 back in May and called it “a beautiful and thin tablet with an industrial design to die for.” The T-Mobile SpringBoard with Google compliments the Tab 10.1 with a 7-inch HD display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera with support for 720p HD video capture, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and Honeycomb. Both tablets will have release dates ahead of the holidays but T-Mobile has not yet announced pricing or further availability details. The carrier’s full press release follows below. More →
