T-Mobile’s Svelte Slate Excels, 3-D Feature Excepted

 

The G-Slate is compact, with an 8.9-inch screen, and generally easy to use. It nails the basics, but the extras need work.

LG Optimus Pad preview: First look

 

An 8.9" screen hits the sweet spot for tablets and LG's Optimus Pad shows good thinking. The first tablet of the company will want to make a difference among more or less uniform rivals. Tablets coming to the market look almost the same - screens,...

T-Mobile G-Slate Review

 

The American tablet market is heating up. With the iPad now in its second generation, the BlackBerry PlayBook attempting to capture a new audience, the Acer Iconia Tab targeting bargain hunters, and the Motorola Xoom already deemed a failure, where...

Bright screen with wide viewing angle ; 1080p video recording ; Dual speakers work well ; Pure Android experience ; Android Market is filling with tablet apps

Cheesy red and blue anaglyph 3D ; No SD card slot ; Steep price tag ; Screen is a bit small for finger typing ; Feels heavy compared to iPad 2 ; Wonky volume rocker

The T-Mobile G-Slate is a fine tablet with fine features, but it loses points because of its price and lack of configuration options.

T-Mobile G-Slate

 

The T-Mobile G-Slate is lighter and brighter than the Motorola Xoom and records 3D video, but the 4G could be faster.

While the iPad 2 remains our top pick among tablets because of its vast app selection, those who are interested in Android 3.0 should take a good look at the T-Mobile G-Slate. In fact, we prefer the G-Slate in some ways to the Motorola Xoom because it...

LG G-Slate review

 

It looks like tablet season is getting started early. LG's G-Slate is having its T-Mobile coming out party on the same day that RIM's PlayBook is set to slide into the hands of consumers, making for tough decisions for some. The device — powered by...

Display is crisp and clear ; Battery life is excellent ; Running Android 3.0

Size and shape is awkward ; Price with contract expensive ; 3D camera is little more than a gimmick

Can a 3D camera, fast dual-core processor, and onboard 3G make up for the fact that the LG G-Slate is the priciest tablet on the market?

Expert review by:

T-Mobile G-Slate review

 

The tablet wars are building, petty disputes that will soon lead to bloodshed. Products will be launched into battle only to be gunned down straight

Narrower profile fits nicely in the hand ; Lighter than the Xoom ; Solid 4G speeds

Plasticy back ; No WiFi version available ; Poor cameras

T-Mobile G-Slate

 

With 4G support, a wide-angle IPS screen, out-of-the-box streaming TV features, and Honeycomb support, the G-Slate is one of the best options for Android tablet shoppers.

Unless you have a thing for two-year contracts, the G-Slate is pretty expensive. 3D implementation is disappointing, and 4G drains the battery something quick.

Thanks to its high-quality screen, streaming TV features, and 4G support (if you're willing to sign a contract), the T-Mobile G-Slate is one of the better Honeycomb tablets on the market today; however, its high no-contract price insures that it's not...

T-Mobile G-Slate Review

 

2011 may be the year of the tablet, but so far only one Android 3.0 Honeycomb (review) example has managed to reach the market. Motorola's XOOM was criticized for launching perhaps before Honeycomb was quite ready; now the T-Mobile G-Slate by LG is...

Honeycomb still falls short of being mass-market ready, though it’s certainly full of promise. As Google has shown with its smartphone iterations of Android, it has no intention of standing still and allowing iOS to dominate the market. The G-Slate...

T-Mobile G-Slate with Google (by LG)

 

Internally, the G-Slate has the 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor—the same powerful chip used in the Motorola Xoom. Like most tablets these days, the G-Slate also has a built in accelerometer for auto screen orientation adjustment, and a gyroscope.

First 4G tablet. Powerful Tegra 2 processor. Excellent HD screen, with HD output capability. Shoots and plays 3D footage (glasses included). Affordably-priced (after rebate) for 32GB capacity. Generally intuitive user interface. Dual-facing cameras....

Default Honeycomb home screen feels cluttered. Flash 10.2 beta is buggy. Strange, off-center orientation for front-facing camera. Occasionally reboots, unprovoked, when idle. Android Market needs more Honeycomb apps

Attention potential Motorola Xoom buyers: the T-Mobile G-Slate with Google (by LG) has Honeycomb, too—as well as a slightly smaller design and 3D capabilities.

LG Optimus Pad Review

 

You've already heard about the LG Optimus Pad – the first tablet with support for 3D with dual-lens camera and a pair of anaglyph glasses for tricking your brain into thinking about the third dimension, but will the 8.9-inch tablet's 3D trickery be...
