LG's all ready to jump into the tablet and smartphone wars anew, with the T-Mobile G-Slate and G2X smartphone rumored to arrive April 20th.

Unofficial T-Mobile Blog, TmoNews, reports that LG’s T-Mobile G-Slate tablet and the G2X smartphone – which is believed to be the Optimus 2X – will be making a debut on April 20th. The release date comes as a surprise considering that competitors such as Motorola and Samsung are way ahead in releasing their own latest tablet and smartphone. Is there still room for LG in the market? There have been no confirmation yet if the said date is true but expect T-Mobile to either confirm or deny the rumor at the CTIA 2011, next week.

The tablet and smartphone will feature dual-core Tegra 2 chips, while only the G-Slate will be running on Google’s latest Honeycomb software.

A hint of Android Gingerbread, a cup of dual-core CPU, added with a teaspoon of qHD screen; looks like HTC is cooking something big. Perhaps it's the EVO 3D?

It’s been awhile since we last heard of Sprint’s EVO 3D phone, but a GLBenchmark database report may give us a little light on the matter as it reveals a mysterious high-end phone from Taiwan, the HTC Shooter. The data unveils that the HTC phone is equipped with a 960×540 resolution qHD display and currently runs on Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread. Also known as model number PG86100, it carries an Adreno 220 GPU which will feature a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon. With this much power, could it be the EVO 3D phone or could it be something else? CTIA 2011 is coming next week, so maybe we can gather more information by then.
