The T-Mobile G-Slate is a 4G capable tablet from LG for the T-mobile Network. Powered by a 1Ghz dual core Tegra 2 processor. The G-Slate is positioned by T-Mobile as being the First 3D capable tablet, which can record video in 3D with its dual 5MP camera in the rear of the device. It also has a 2MP front facing camera for video chat. It has an 8.9″ touch screen, 32 GB of internal storage and cost $399 with a 2 year contract from T-Mobile.
So what makes the G-Slate interesting? first off, it runs Android 3.0 honeycomb, and it does that well without any slow downs or system issues. It also comes with some pre-installed apps like T-mobile TV and a few games to get you accustomed to the tablet. What differentiate the G-Slate from other Tablets is its 3D capabilities.
It has the ability to record and view 3D videos on the tablet(Red& Blue only for tablet viewing)
The T-Mobile G-Slate is an Android Tablet that matches up to the rest of the pack as far as Android Tablets are concerned. Its man distinctive feature, the 3D recording & viewing does seem gimmicky and I think takes away from what I consider the best sized tablet on the market at 8.9″, making it perfect for viewing movies and easy to use in productivity. Don’t get me wrong I love the ability to record 3D videos content, especially in 3 different 3D options which is cool and the ability to via that content on a larger screen via HDMI-out (Which LG Provides you the adapter for; Thank God)is very good feature to have.
At the end of it all it all depends if consumers are willing to pay $399 with a 2 year contract for the T-Mobile G-Slate or would rather pay a slightly higher price to get the same tablet without the contract.
