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.
There’s also a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video calls, an SD card slot for up to 32GB cards, and GPS for navigation – either via Google Maps or T-Mobile’s TeleNav GPS Navigator subscription service. Preloaded are BLOCKBUSTER on Demand, Netflix and T-Mobile TV, while the HSPA+ supports up to 14.4Mbps, network depending.
As for the Samsung, that’s the 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 Galaxy Tab 10.1 we know already, running a dual-core 1GHz processor and offering a 3-megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel front camera and now HSPA+ for mobile connectivity. Obviously there’s all the usual Android Honeycomb apps and access to the Android Market too.
Both slates are expected to go on sale in time for the holidays; pricing is yet to be confirmed.
