Press images leaked of 7-inch T-Mobile Huawei “Springboard” tablet
In June, Huawei announced the Mediapad, a 7-inch tablet that ran Honeycomb 3.2. Last week, we saw a photo of the MediaPad that was T-Mobile branded. Today, we have discovered some press images of the MediaPad on T-Mobile’s website. The tablet’s name is the Springboard.
Specs wise, the Springboard will feature a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a 7-inch touchscreen with 1280×800 resolution, 16 GB of internal storage, Adobe Flash support, a 4,100 mAh battery, Android 3.2(Honeycomb), and support for T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network.
The latest rumor indicates that T-Mobile plans to sell this tablet for $199.99 on a new two year contract, making it as cheap as most high-end smartphones and the cheapest on contract tablet on the market. If T-Mobile keeps the price, it would compete directly with Amazon’s Kindle Fire, which is also priced at $199.99, but doesn’t include any network connectivity. No info on a release date yet since Springboard hasn’t been confirmed by T-Mobile, but we will keep you updated as more info becomes available.
