As predicted, the Huawei SpringBoard tablet made its official debut at the CTIA Expo this week complete with specs and target launch dates.

The 7-inch budget tablet will use a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU of unknown make with front-and-rear cameras, HDMI, microUSB and a microSD card slot. Additional hardware info, such as included RAM and WWAN technology, was not mentioned by Wired, who had hands-on time with the Honeycomb tablet at the San Diego conference. Still, the source confirms a holiday release for T-Mobile customers at around $200.

The SpringBoard, previously called the MediaPad, was first teased as early as mid-June. Compared to tablets released earlier in the year such as the Motorola Xoom, HTC Flyer or RIM PlayBook, newer tablet releases have been having an easier time reaching below the $500 price point while retaining respectable hardware features and speeds. The advent of the $200 Amazon Kindle Fire, $229 Lenovo IdeaPad A1 and similarly priced ViewSonic ViewPad 7x are all examples of budget-priced tablets with mainstream processors and connectivity options.
