Reviews Word on the street for the T-Mobile Springboard


7.0
The tablet is well put together with quality materials and it has a very high resolution display that's sharp and bright.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The 7” HD display also does a nice job with images and text, and viewing angles are good, though it can be tough to see in sunlight.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2011)
What's hot: Good materials and build quality, great specs, high res display and HSPA.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)
Located on the front of the SpringBoard is the reasonable size 7” IPS TFT display that features an HD resolution of 1280x720 pixels.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2011)

Apps

Music playback comes courtesy of the standard Android Music app, unless you load a third party player or music streaming service like Slacker or Pandora.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)
The basic Android staples are here including Gmail, email, the Webkit web browser with Adobe Flash, Gtalk with video chat, YouTube, Maps, Navigation, Places and the Android Market.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)
What you do get is sharper fonts in eBook apps like Kindle and Nook, as well as sharper video and photos.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)

Operating System

This is the first 7", 1280 x 800 pixel Android tablet to hit the market, and it's nice to have a high quality display at this price.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)
The Springboard is a 7" Android Honeycomb 3.2 tablet that's got a quality look and feel with specs to match.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)
The tablet handles video playback well, and it managed 1080p high profile MPEG4 video playback without a hitch, something we can't say of all Android tablets.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)

Operating system

That means the operating system is doing some scaling to keep things legible, and that's not a bad thing.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)
Its Android Honeycomb experience is easy to use, and feels quick with the 1.2GHz dual-processor and 1GB of RAM.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2011)
Running on the T-Mobile SpringBoard is Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
by PhoneArena (Dec, 2011)

Chat

The tablet has GSM EDGE/3G/4G for data only; it does not handle cellular calls, though you can use VoIP apps like GTalk and Skype.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)
As with other US tablets, this is used only for data and the tablet doesn't make calls over the cell network nor does it do text messaging.
by MobileTechReview (Nov, 2011)
Lookout Security, Slacker, TeleNav GPS Navigator, Qik Video Chat and Zinio are included.
