T-Mobile SpringBoard Huawei

At the tail end of last month, we were treated to the first "in the wild" shots of a 7-inch Huawei-made Android tablet (likely the MediaPad) destined for T-Mobile's shelves. Now the mystery slate is back, but this time the source of the leak is T-Mobile itself. How nice of Magenta to give up some details on an unannounced tablet, right? The device appeared in the results of a search for Vibrant on T-Mobile's site, complete with the name "SpringBoard" and even a few specs: Netflix, 16GB storage, and a 5-megapixel camera.

Besides the few features given by T-Mobile's site, this Huawei 7-incher is reportedly packing a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a front-facing camera for all of your self-portrait needs, T-Mobile 4G connectivity, and Android 3.2. If all of those specs have you reaching for your wallet and the credit card that it's holding, you'll be pleased to know that a recently-leaked T-Mobile roadmap has pegged the SpringBoard as launching on November 2nd for $199 on-contract. Obviously those details aren't official just yet, but if they do hold true then T-Mobile could have a pretty enticing little slate on its hands. We'll pass along more details as we get them.
