Here’s the first look at LG’s G-Slate tablet, which is gunning to be the best Android tablet with a dual-core Tegra 2 chipset, 8.9-inch 3D display, 3D camera, and of course, Honeycomb. It also runs on T-Mobile’s 21mbps HSPA+ network.
The G-Slate has a 1GHz Tegra 2 chipset running under the hood, enabling 720p HD and 3D content on the tablet, and the ability to output 1080p HD and 3D content to TVs and displays. The rear camera is a five-megapixel stereoscopic 3D shooter capable of recording 3D video in 1080p resolution. It’s also worth noting that ally 3D content displayed on the G-slate will require glasses, so it’s not like the Nintendo 3DS.
The G-Slate also has a two-megapixel frontside camera for video conferencing, and 32 gigs of storage space. And, as with most tablets and smartphones these days, it also comes equipped with a gyroscope and accelerometer. T-Mobile and LG arenn’t revealing pricing or exact release dates quite yet, but they say the G-Slate will be out this spring. Motorola Xoom, you might want to watch your back.
