T-Mobile SpringBoard

We sure saw a lot of smartphones (and a tablet) at CTIA, but not all of them were announced at the show. Some we've known about for a while, and this was the first we've been able to get in the way of video or hands-on photos. So here's the haul.

A Huawei-made 7-inch tablet, the T-Mobile SpringBoard runs on a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and runs on T-Mobile's "4G" speeds. There's no pricing yet, but it should slide in under $200.
