T-Mobile SnapPad trademark and domain appear

T-Mobile has signaled plans for another tablet in its mix with registrations for a name in less than a week. Both a USPTO trademark for "SnapPad" and several domain name registrations, such as and multiple variants such as and .net. The trademark only indicates that it's for "tablet computers."

Having already released the G-Slate, T-Mobile has made little known about who or what would be involved in the SnapPad. Given its control over device names on is network, the carrier is most likely rebadging a future tablet from HTC or Samsung with HSPA+ Internet access as a main feature. Candidates could include native versions of Samsung's new Galaxy Tabs or the HTC Puccini.

Both the trademark and the web addresses omit clues as to a launch date. Either is typically registered months in advance and might not see the SnapPad arrive before the end of the year. [via DotWeekly and PocketNow]
