T-Mobile has released information about the highly anticipated LG G-Slate, just days after information regarding the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant 4G announcement. The tablet was first shown just over a month ago at the Consumer Electronics Show, and will be available to consumers in the spring. The device will have some very interesting capabilities that should allow it to be one of the more popular devices on the market.
The LG G-Slate will include a high definition 8.9 inch display that is capable of multi-touch technology. It will also be able to record 3D and full HD video, which is not something that we have previously seen from a tablet. It appears that the entry level tablet era has come and gone and now manufacturers are competing to include as many features as possible in their most recent announcements. The inclusion of these features should make the LG G-Slate one of the most highly anticipated tablets on the market during this upcoming spring.
The device will also feature 720p HD video playback straight from the device as well as an HDMI output that will allow for 1080p HD content to be played on HD displays. As far as hardware goes, the G-Slate will feature a dual-core, NVIDIA Tegra 2 Processor that comes complete with 32GB of storage and will run on the Google Android 3.0, also known as Honeycomb, operating system. The tablet should start to gain momentum now that it has been announced, and could potentially take on some of the biggest names in the space, including the Motorola Xoom, when it is finally released.
The fact that the tablet will be able to play high definition content on 3D TV’s should draw in users that own these television sets. So far, no tablet even similar to the LG Unlocked (G-Slate) has been announced thus far. It will certainly be interesting to see how well the tablet is able to perform in the first hands on testing sessions once we get a little bit closer to its release.
