T-Mobile Announces Galaxy Tab 10.1, Springboard Launch Dates
After having announced that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and T-Mobile Springboard by Huawei tablets will be arriving on T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network, the nation’s fourth largest carrier is now giving consumers a date on when that arrival is supposed to take place. T-Mobile USA is announcing that its HSPA+ variant of the Galaxy Tab 10.1–rival Verizon Wireless has a 4G LTE variant of the same tablet–will be hitting retail on November 2nd. Unfortunately, pricing for the tablet has not yet been announced. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have a 10-inch display and comes with Android Honeycomb and dual-core Tegra 2 CPU clocked at 1 GHz.
Additionally, the T-Mobile Springboard Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet will be coming to T-Mobile’s network a few days later on Nobember 7th. This is among the most feature-packed 7-inch tablets in its class with a high resolution 1280 X 800-pixel display that’s typically found on larger 10-inch slates, dual-core 1.2 GHz CPU, and front- and rear-camera support. Again, T-Mobile has not yet announced pricing for this slate, though executives from Huawei at CTIA in San Diego a few weeks ago told us that we should expect to be pleasantly surprised. The tablet’s been rumored to cost $200 or less with a two-year contract.
