LG G-Slate gets Android 3.1 update, brings Google Videos and resizable widgets.

The LG G-Slate seems to be catching up with its tablet contenders, Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab, as T-Mobile recently announced that the Android 3.1 updates are already available in the device. Casting out the former Android 3.0, the revamped G-Slate tablet now prompts users to display Google Videos for movie rentals. They could also take good advantage of the USB accessory that can be used to connect the tablet into keyboards, mouse, or other controllers.

The interface of the LG G-Slate has also been enhanced. New features such as re-sizable widgets, an expanded list of applications, and Gmail, have been added to the device — allowing users to have a wider range of activities. T-mobile as well pointed out that along with this Android 3.1 update, they have also fixed most of the G-Slate’s bugs that were attested before — including the issues regarding the Google Talk and Music apps. Moreover, the company unveiled that users can now experience an improved tablet browser and widget responsiveness.

G-Slate, 2x Faster Than iPad 2 and 3x Faster Than Xoom?

T-mobile's G-Slate seems to be taking the top spot in the market with a recent price drop off and a document claiming that it is 2x Faster than iPad 2 and 3x faster than Xoom.

T-mobile boasted the G-Slate as one of the best tablets in the market – not only because of a recently announced price drop off – but also because they’ve received a “legal approval” which allows them to promote the tablet as “2x faster than the iPad 2 on AT&T and Verizon, and over 3x faster than the Motorola Xoom.”

However, these demands are based only on T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ 42Mbps network, AT&T’s HSPA+ network and Verizon’s 3G network. T-mobile’s G-Slate is not also capable to fully use the 42Mbps HSPA+ since the said device is only limited to 14.4Mbps.

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.
