T-Mobile offering leather sleeve for 10-inch tablets, hinting at a possible slate arrival
Okay, you should definitely file this under “speculations”, but if it turns out to be true, T-Mobile fans may have something nice to be looking forward to. It has just been brought to our attention that a protective leather sleeve for 10-inch tablets has been spotted in a T-Mobile store meaning that the carrier might be thinking of adding a new slate to its portfolio.

Unfortunately, the accessory is universal meaning that it has not been tailored for a specific 10-inch tablet. That, of course, makes the task of predicting which slate of that size might be offered at T-Mobile a bit more difficult. However, some say that the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 is the best-fitting candidate.

On the other hand, the accessory might be simply targeting those customers who already own a 10-inch tablet and happen to be in need of a nice leather sleeve to go along with it. It would probably be a good idea to not get your hopes too high just yet, or at least not until the rumor mill strikes again with further details. We will be keeping an eye on it and let you know as soon as anything new pops up.

and another thought.. however unlikely or not.. since Tmobile is getting an iphone this year, maybe they are also getting an iphad2 as well. wouldnt that just make all you apple fans crazy :)

It has not been stated by anyone as a fact that T-Mobile will get an Iphone. That makes the Ipad less likely seeing as it is not going to be refreshed this year by most estimates. This accessory is also not the correct size for an Ipad. It is a 16:9 sized case. Stop fanning a fire that may not be necessary and wait the 4 weeks or whatever it will be to get the facts. T-Mobile has gone on record and said bluntly no iphones. I personally expect them to start selling it sooner or later but apple may hold out for the merger decision before it is released to T-Mobile.

they all go on record and say things. if you have a phone slated for 3-6 months out, why would u announce it? you would just get a bunch of people to wait to upgrade or move to your company, which costs you money. the iphone is coming.. its going to everyone this year. its been as confirmed as it can be without jobs announcing it... which will happen soon... or... cook.. one of em.. lol notice i said however unlikely in my conjecture post. not everthing i say i state as fact. there are at least 2 other tablets slated for Tmo's lineup.. one of them being a 10 inch huwaia tablet.
