T-Mobile G-Slate Tablet Review: Great Features, But…

Written on April 24, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

With a widescreen display, Google Android's Honeycomb, and a 3D-camera, does the T-Mobile G-Slate have what it takes to dominate the tablet market? Not really.

From the makers of the G2x smartphone, your friendly neighborhood T-Mobile, comes its latest tablet out in the market, the T-Mobile G-Slate. Powered by the sweet-succulent juice of Android Honeycomb, a unique widescreen display, a 4G network, plus a 3D camera, the G-Slate has the makings of becoming the legendary iPad 2 killer. Unfortunately, despite all these savvy features, it’s the tablet’s very advantage that spells its downfall.

The T-Mobile G-Slate has a smooth and satisfying touch with a thickness of 0.49 inch plus a matte finish at the back. It provides a nice comforting grip where you don’t have to worry that it will slip from the palm of your hand. It’s screen is 8.9-inch big, a humble size compared to the iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom tablets. But it’s unique widescreen display somehow gives that unique appeal.

Think your phone is new? Well think again after a couple more months as Qualcomm may inspire manufacturers with their crazy 2.5GHz CPUs!

"A premium mobile HD entertainment experience on a tablet. Welcome to T-Mobile G-Slate with Google, by LG."

It’s got 3D Cameras, it runs on Honeycomb 3.0, plus it has Tegra 2. What’s not to love about the LG G-Slate? Well we’ll give you some ideas on what’s MORE to love about the tablet with a short video demo we found over at Youtube (oh, youtube, where can we be without ye?). And although the video looks a little unpolished, it gives us a clear idea on its hardware specs along with a cool demo on how the 3D feature would look like once the 3D stereoscopic cameras have kicked in. Probably the only apprehension we have with the LG G-Slate is the size of the display, but hey, atleast we can expect some decent prices once it comes out.

Check out the video after the break!

It may be no Nintendo 3DS where it doesn't need a pair of glasses to view 3D content, but the LG G-Slate is still slated to become the best Android tablet out there.

Looks like it’s all out for T-Mobile as they uncover the specs and details of the much hyped LG G-Slate tablet. The G-Slate, which is hoping to become the best Android tablet to date, so far has an impressive roster of features which include the much anticipated Honeycomb, a dual-core Tegra 2 chipset, an 8.9-inch 3D display topped off with a 3D camera. However, the tablet won’t be anything near the Nintendo 3DS as the device needs glasses in order to properly view the 3D content.

Should we count on a music video to confirm rumors of a device? Well LG and Big Bang did have some chemistry going on over the years, so maybe this one is legit.

We just love Easter Eggs, don’t we? Well here’s one that’s gonna tickle your tech tastebuds. A recent music video by hit Korean boyband Big Bang has briefly revealed an LG-branded slate that suggests a dual-camera at the back. And a dual-camera could only mean one thing, 3D camera. If you remember last CES 2011, Korean company LG has unveiled the G-Slate though little details have been provided. Rumors speculate that the G-Slate may carry something 3D in its features, and it looks like this music video has just flammed the fans.

Hit the break to watch the music video. And if you’re not the type of person to look for an easter egg by yourself, then go ahead and skip the play bar to 0.53 and 1.52.

Sony Camera Line Up for CES 2011 Leaked

Written on January 05, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

We got hefty upgrades and high-end point and shoot cameras on their way. Will the Bloggie 3D camera compensate for the lack of DSLRs and NEXs in the line-up?

Looks like Photorumors draws first blood over Sony as it leaks a list of the Japanese company’s camera line up for the CES 2011. By the looks of the list, it seems Sony has alot of upgraded and high-end models coming their way, but details are very minimal and no pictures are available. Unfortunately, the report states that we won’t be seeing any Sony DLSR or NEX this time. What really caught our attention though was the Bloggie 3D camera, which allows the user to capture movies in 3D. They might have thought that since everything else seems to be 3D, why not capture a video in 3D? Stick around for more details as we dive deeper into CES 2011.

See the complete list after the break!
