I look forward to your results. I have both the Springboard and a G2 and get the same results with both devices. As best as I can see the 4G that you see on the screen is just eye candy.

So there are/is someone who wants to see the results between the stock T-Mobile 3.2 rom vs the International Mediapad 4.0 rom.

Only problem is I'm leaning towards jumping on at&t's service due to their data plans being a MUCH better deal than what T-Mobile is offers.

There's a $5 BestBuy code in it for whomever does it

So not going for a code or anything, plus I don't have a video. *laugh* But I took the stock Springboard and upgraded to the ICS international build. It went flawlessly and the improvements are really solid. Graphically, lots of little refinements here and there, and to the eye, performance seems better. It also strips off the TMO bloatware which is nice.

Absolutely a positive change, and I did it quite nervously considering this is my first droid device, tablet and first upgrade.

How is it a much better deal??

Tmobile is 2GB for $30 if you already have a plan you get throttled after 2GB

ATT is 3GB for $30 and you get charged if you go over.

Thats not really a huge difference and tmobile is better if you want 5GB.

ATT $50 for 5GB vs Tmobile $40 for 5GB if you already have a line.

The big difference being that if you go over you pay more through ATT.

Combined with the fact that ATTs tablets are not as nice and cost more in the long run T-mobile is the better option for tablets. IMO the only tablet they have worth getting is the galaxy tab and that will cost you quadruple what the springboard costs. Hell you can even get the Gtab 10.1 for less than ATT wants for the 8.9. The cheapest tablet is the element for $299 at ATT and IMO you would have to be insane to pay a dime more than $150 for it considering the competitions pricing.

Considering the Springboard is $99 right now you need to look at the bigger picture, Tmobile blows ATT out of the water in overall value for tablets.

I just checked tmobile.. its $249 after MIR. Thats ripoff!! But I want this tab.. im seeing prices around $400 on eBay. Really close to buying one and ill rather pay $400+ upfront than get stuck paying 299 + 30 a month for 2 years. That's over $1000, no thanks.

The Springboard was at $99 for a long time (much of March into April). Guess you missed the sale, but if you are patient it will probably reappear again.

Did you know Walmart offers a 5GB/$30 prepaid deal (T-Mobile network)?

Are you able to make calls and get cell data with this plan? To date, I have not found a tmobile plan that will actually allow both. Only option is to have a sim for data and a different sim for calls.
