Late last night, T-Mobile took to Twitter to announce some official details of their upcoming Honeycomb Tablet, the LG G-Slate. The G-Slate was announced at CES, but no details were given at all. Now we have some concrete specs, and a slightly more concrete release date.
The G-Slate will have an 8.9" screen, a super-fast dual-core processor, and will be powered by Android 3.0, Honeycomb. In a first-of-its-kind move, the G-Slate will also feature some fancy 3D capabilities. Its display will be able to display 3D content, though glasses will be required. It also features dual cameras on the back, allowing it to record full HD, 1080p 3D videos. The glasses won't be required all the time for using the tablet, just for when you want to watch 3D content. It's unclear what type of 3D screen technology LG is using for this device.
The G-Slate will also be a 4G device, fully able to take advantage of T-Mobile's HSPA+ network. It goes on sale "this spring" for an unannounced price. [via Android Central]
Plus, it's a Honeycomb tablet, which alone puts it head and shoulders above most other tablets on the market. Sadly, it's tied to T-Mobile, meaning it'll require an expensive data plan. That's enough to keep me from buying it, unfortunately. Hopefully LG releases a WiFi-only version sooner or later.
