T-Mobile LG G-Slate Honeycomb 3D Tablet Hands-On (video)

T-Mobile and LG announced their Android Honeycomb and 3D powered tablet, the G-Slate, all the way back in January at CES. However, they weren’t able to give anyone an up close and personal look at the goods.

CTIA’s a different story though and T-Mobile was glad to show off their new tablet to us, a device that hopes to compete with the likes of the HTC EVO View 4G, Motorola Xoom and iPad 2.

The T-Mobile G-Slate is powered by a 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and it showed because the tablet was very fast and handled applications and Honeycomb beautifully. It’s not as thin as the iPad 2 or Samsung’s tablets but it definitely looks like it gets the job done.

It’ll also come equipped with dual rear 5 megapixel cameras that will allow for 3D video capture. The display on the actual device doesn’t support 3D which is a little disappointing and that means that it will need another device, say a 3DTV, in order to display 3D footage.

T-Mobile’s G-Slate will be out sometime this spring for $529.99 after rebate and a new two-year contract.

      Yawn? Totally exciting. MSRP $530, which makes it competitive both in cost and specs with the ipad2. 3d video capture, which is the first I’ve heard on any tablet. 3 months from now when the market is inundated with name brand and generic brand tablets, maybe yawn… but this is better than the XOOM, better than the galaxy, honeycomb, and is a finished project (rather than those others that are still running on froyo or gingerbread). Not to say it’s gonna be the best tablet of 2011 but at this point in time totally exciting…
