Well, if you were hoping to get your hands on the tablet, the good news is that according to T-Mobile’s Twitter account, the tablet will indeed be headed the carriers way.

09/13/2011, Do you have a Twitter account? If you answered in the negative, then it is about time you did – it is a powerful social media platform that allows you to keep in touch with what’s going on around – families, corporations, social circles, in an up-to-date manner without missing a beat.

09/12/2011, Another day, another lawsuit. This time it’s the popular micro-blogging social network, Twitter, versus Twittad, a marketing company that uses Twitter to promote its clients. Twitter is suing Twittad for using the word “tweet” in its slogan “Let Your Ad Meet Tweets”.
