LG’s first tablet – the 3D capable G-Slate™

February 4th, 2011 by LG Blog UK

Hot off the back of Google’s launch of Android Honeycomb comes the official press release for T-Mobile and LG’s tablet – the Android™ 3.0 (Honeycomb)-powered tablet, the G-Slate™.

With an HD 8.9-inch, 3D capable multi-touch display, and ability to record 3D and full HD video the T-Mobile G-Slate is certainly in the ‘groundbreaking’ category.

Available in the US this spring, the G-Slate is designed specifically for America’s largest 4G Network. Promising to be the first tablet in T-Mobile’s pioneering G-series, the G-Slate is powered by Google’s brand new Android Platform Honeycomb, which is optimized for Tablet use.  In addition the G-Slate also lays claim to being among the very first tablets with 3D capabilities including built-in support for 3D graphics, enabling customers to be able to capture and share their own 3D videos and experience 3D HD content right on the device with the aid of 3D glasses.

The G-Slate is lightweight making it the ideal accessory on the go, watching streaming TV or browsing the Web. With a rear-facing stereoscopic (3D capable) video recorder with 1080P capability and a 5MP camera with Flash, and a front facing camera for video calling over Wi-Fi with Google Talk™ or the T-Mobile US network. The G-Slate comes with 720P HD playback, with the option of connecting to a 3D or HD device via HDMI for playback also.

Powering the G-Slate is the NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile processor with dual-core CPU and full Adobe® Flash® Player support, enabling quick web browsing, multitasking and gaming.  In addition the G-Slate includes 32GB of internal memory, built-in gyroscope, accelerometer and adaptive lighting.

Presently there is no word on a UK release date, though we will have more information right here at the Official LG Blog UK when we know more.
