T-Mobile USA has outed a pair of 4G Android tablets, the 7-inch T-Mobile SpringBoard With Google and the HSPA+ enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. While the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is familiar, the SpringBoard is less so; a rebadged Huawei MediaPad, it has a 7-inch HD display, Qualcomm 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 5-megapixel main camera with 720p HD video recording.
It appears quite obvious that the following photos are of the newest variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II, this time in what's called the Samsung Hercules. This device will, if proven to confirm specs rumored thus far, be T-Mobile's first HSPA+ 42Mbps device and will have an 8 megapixel camera on the back, a lovely silver (metal?) single-piece battery cover, rounded corners, and what appears to be a bit of a curved glass front. If not curved, certainly expanding in width near the bottom of the front.

The Motorola PHOTON 4G was announced back in June and we were live in NYC for some hands-on time while it was on display. Today is the full deal though, review and all so see below for all the details.

As you could have guessed from the name, T-Mobile has just announced that the HTC HD7 will be heading to the Magenta network by the mid-weeks of November. We already know the device will be heading to Europe in October, so those in the United States will have to wait a bit longer. And, T-Mobile is happy to announce that, along with the Dell Venue, the HTC HD7 is an exclusive handset to bring Windows Phone 7 to the network in time for the holiday shopping sprees.
