Written on June 22, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

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.

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.

Google does the unexpected, as it keeps Android Honeycomb's source codes from developers until further notice.

The Motorola Xoom tablet does have the Android Honeycomb inside. But according to BusinessWeek, Google has no plans of releasing the Android Honeycomb source code to small hardware makers and developers due to the fear of having unpleasant results and user-experiences, especially if programmers attempt to bring the Honeycomb to phones.

According to Google Spokesperson, Andy Rubin, the “Android 3.0, Honeycomb, was designed from the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes and improves on Android favorites such as widgets, multi-tasking, browsing, notifications and customization.” He further added that “while we’re excited to offer these new features to Android tablets, we have more work to do before we can deliver them to other device types including phones.”
