T-Mobile Adds To Tablet Portfolio With Springboard With Google And Galaxy Tab 10.1″

T-Mobile just made another addition to their 4G tablet portfolio with the official announcement of the T-Mobile Springboard with Google and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. We’ve already heard the official announcement of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 but up until this point the T-Mobile Springboard with Google has flown under the radar.

The T-Mobile Springboard with Google which we presented earlier this morning will be one of T-Mobile’s most affordable tablets. The Springboard features a 7″ HD display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, SD card slot for up to 32GB of expandable memory, Adobe Flash, 5 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front facing camera and 720p video recording.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 comes 4G ready in a 1.2 package featuring a 10.1″ HD display along with a Tegra 2 processor, Adobe Flash support along with pre-installed apps such as T-Mobile TV, Samsung Media Hub, Asphalt 6, Sim City Deluxe Demo, Zinio and more.

Both tablets are set to launch sometime this holiday season as is typical T-Mobile fashion to tease with open timeframes for launch. Still, the Springboard should come in right around that $199.99 price we first discovered a while back making it the perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays.

  • J. Williams

    I plan on grabbing the Galaxy Tab 10.1…

    If the 10.1 Tab is less than $500, then it’s mine.

  • josue cifuentes

    hmmmmmm very intersting……..

    It would be nice to offer versions that don’t require the cellular network.  I recently became amazed at watching netflix on my phone while in bed.  It would be nice to have a tablet but I don’t want to end up paying another 30 dollars a month for data service on it.  My home wifi offers a stronger and constant signal compared to TMOs network and I won’t have to worry about a data cap if I’m streaming video.

      Umm… Wifi version have always been available and for less…

      • fsured

        Yes there are wifi versions of tablets but I didn’t see the article mention wifi only versions of these two products.

          the samsung 10.1 tablet WiFi-only version has been available for quite some time from other vendors, but the pricing is ridiculous @ around $700.

    • TMOTECH

      If you pay full price you can use it without a sim card on wi-fi

  • Kevin Kerr

    The question is: does the Galaxy Tab 10.1 support 42mbps HSPA+?

    • jb

      I agree. I can’t see any reason that Tmo wouldn’t, but ya never know…
      If it does, I’ll get it. I’ve been waiting for a 10″+ tablet.
