T-Mobile Will Launch The First 3D 4G Honeycomb Tablet The LG G-Slate


T-Mobile suddenly announced that their G-Slate tablet, which they announced in February will be released tomorrow 4/20/2011 here in the U.S. The tablet is the first to offer 3D (albeit ‘old school’ style with the red and blue glasses) and will come loaded with Android 3.0 Honeycomb.

The tablet is selling for $529.99 with a two year contract for current T-Mobile customers, that’s after a $100 mail in rebate which means you’ll be paying $629.99 out of the door. For that price you get:

  • 8.9 Inch Multi-Touch 1280 X 768 display
  • Android 3.0
  • Tegra 2 1GHz Dual-Core CPU
  • 32GB Internal Memory
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • HDMI Out
  • 5MP Front Facing Camera
  • 2MP Front Facing Camera
  • Micro USB Port
  • Micro-SDHC Card Slot
  • Kickstand
  • 3D Video Recording
  • 3D Video Playback
  • Accelerometer
  • Gyroscope
LG G-Slate

Seems like a pretty reasonably powered device even without the somewhat gimmicky anaglyphic 3D being tacked on to it. The G-Slate will also come with some nifty bloatware for you to immediately delete unless of course you like; T-Mobile live and on-demand TV, Need For Speed Shift HD, Zino eReader, Google eBooks or Google Talk.

The tablet was built in conjunction with LG for T-Mobile so I guess it’s only a matter of time before Apple’s lawyers start suing them both for patent infringement, it seems to be their way of dealing with any competition lately. Plus if you believe their lawyers you pretty much can’t make a tablet people touch with their fingers without ripping off iOS.

So there you have it. A full on 3D Honeycomb tablet you can take home tomorrow. Can’t wait to see what happens with this one.
