Mossberg reviews LG G-Slate says it’s not as good as iPad 2

The gadget godfather over at the Wall Street Journal is Walter Mossberg. This is a geek of a different color than us normal folks and one review good or bad from Mossberg can make or break a new product on the market. More than one bad review from Mossberg has heralded the demise of the dreams of sales glory for a manufacturer.

Mossberg has laid his hands on the LG G-Slate tablet that we have talked about before. The G-Slate sells for about $750 with no data contract. He noted in the review that the tablet performs pretty well overall. However, the real killer comment for LG was this one, "The G-Slate isn’t as good a tablet as the iPad 2. I’d only recommend it for people who want the higher cellular speeds, or who prefer Android."

If you don’t care what Mossberg thinks you can get the tablet right now. It's got nice hardware with a dual-core Tegra processor and Android 3.0 as the OS. The screen is an 8.9-inch unit that is multi-touch compatible and it will show 3D content if you wear glasses. The tablet is Google certified as well and has a 2MP front camera and a 5MP rear camera.

    Mossberg basically ALWAYS prefers Apple products by default. His influence has got to be frustrating for other manufacturers.

    So has he reviewed the other Android tablets , and if so how does he compare this to those, or does he think all non-ipads are inferior??

    It is pretty obvious he Mossberg is either biased towards Apple, or paid by them. I frankly couldn’t give a shit what that moron has to say about products, and most people probably don’t know who the hell he is.
    His opinion wouldn’t effect my product choice in the slightest. That’s coming from someone with an iPhone 3Gs and an iMac lol xD

    I would not worry about what he has to say. He has never liked an android device. He is far from objective in his reviews.

    Mossberg can gobble a dick! No Falsh support on Apple products along with some checkerboarding, which means there’s a couple of websites you won’t be able to play video content from. At least there’s no checkerboarding on stock Android, and Flash content is only getting better.

    I own an iPad and just got the G-Slate. The fact that the G-Slate is backed up by the cloud automatically into your Google account, includes Flash, has 4G speeds, 3D screen, surfs the web more like Chrome, etc etc….I’m enjoying the G-Slate much more. The iPad will be used as the unit for the “kids” going forward while Dad uses the LG Honeycomb Android for serious work, er play. :)

    mossberg can kiss my a**. Apple products are pretty much idiot proof, maybe that’s why he likes them.
