Well, what do we have here? Looks like T-Mobile has just snagged a new tablet accessory, but we’re not quite sure which tablet the accessory is supposed to go with. This 10-inch leather sleeve isn’t going to fit very well on either of T-Mobile’s current slate offerings: the 7-inch Dell Streak 7 or the 8.9-inch T-Mobile G-Slate.

Unfortunately, the sleeve itself doesn’t have any specific tablet in mind. It’s a universal leather sleeve “for most 10-inch tablets,” according to the image leaked by TmoNews. This could mean one of two things.

The first is that T-Mobile decided to sell a 10-inch tablet sleeve for the fun of it. People often get their tablet/phone accessories at their local carrier outlet, whether they bought said device there or not. And there are plenty of 10-inch tablets on the market that are in need of a snug little sleeve. This option is totally plausible, but not what we’re hoping for.

The second option is that T-Mobile is working on getting itself a 10-inch tablet. Which 10-inch tablet? Your guess is as good as mine. A few rumors suggest that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 may be headed in pink’s direction, which would be pretty huge since it’s widely regarded as one of the stronger tablet offerings on the market.

Right now, T-Mobile’s tablet selection is a bit limited compared to other big carriers like Verizon and AT&T, so we’ll definitely be keeping our fingers crossed that the latter is in fact the reason for this slightly random 10-inch tablet sleeve.
