LG G-Slate to be released under T-Mobile

Another tablet, the G-Slate, is soon to be released by LG. This device will be 4G capable and also run Android 3.0 Honeycomb optimized for tablet computers. No hardware information has been discussed concerning this tablet thus far, but it will be interesting to directly compare it to the recently released information concerning the Motorola XOOM. Information on the pricing and date of release is extremely thin, but we suspect it will be a first quarter release. T-Mobile's YouTube account luckily posted a video showing off Honeycomb running smoothly on the G-Slate: [youtube 7fiZt6Hws0s] [Via SlashGear]
