T-Mobile SpringBoard launch due November 9

Remember when T-Mobile unveiled one of its latest tablet offerings, dubbed the SpringBoard? Well, the fourth-largest U.S. carrier has just announced on its website that the Huawei-made device will be officially launched in retail stores on November 9th. T-Mobile didn’t elaborate on pricing information, unfortunately.

The Huawei Springboard is a 7-inch tablet that runs the latest version of Android — 3.2 Honeycomb. That means the OS is optimized for the larger screen and also gives you full access to the Android Market. It has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, so performance should be relatively snappy with little to no lag. The SpringBoard has a 5 MP rear camera capable of taking still photos and recording 720p HD videos, and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera for video chatting. The 7-inch tablet comes with a few apps pre-loaded, like Netflix, Blockbuster, and T-Mobile TV, but otherwise it’s vanilla Android Honeycomb with no custom user interface. It also supports microSD cards up to 32GB, so storage shouldn’t be an issue. For information and more pics, checkout Marc’s hands on with the Huawei Springboard.

If the price is right, T-Mobile will surely have a competitive tablet for customers to get their hands on. If this tab were priced at 300 bucks, would you buy it?
