The Huawei MediaPad tablet was first hinted at early June and then rumored in August for a T-Mobile launch. Now it appears that the cellular network itself has accidentally revealed its release.

The T-Mobile version of the 7-inch MediaPad will reportedly be renamed to the SpringBoard. The Honeycomb tablet should be coming out of the box with Netflix support and a 5MP rear camera. Unfortunately, the leak does not tell much more of the tablet, but our previous reports have been suggesting an IPS 1280x800 resolution display, 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 16GB SSD, 4G support and a front-facing 1.3MP camera.

The SpringBoard tablet is expected to retail for $200 or less with a data plan, which would be quite the bargain for a dual-core Honeycomb tablet. Note, however, that the tablet has yet to be officially announced for T-Mobile, so the launch date is still a mystery. Electronista  is predicting an official unveiling this coming week at the CTIA expo in San Diego.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
