G-Slate tablet

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 vs Motorola XOOM vs LG G-Slate

Which one of these things is not like the other - which one of them does not belong? Any lay-person looking at the three tablets in this odd stack up might say the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on account of its white color and custom-etched backing, but look at that little weirdo. The LG G-Slate is one of the latest dual-core tablets to be released in the USA and it's ever-so-slightly smaller than the other two here in this stack-up. It's also got a 3D camera. That's pretty weird. And what about that Motorola XOOM? It's what, several months old. Shouldn't it be extinct by now? Hardly. Behold this week's ultimate battle to the death, Google I/O 2011 style.

G2x and G-Slate Both Have IPS Display [CONFIRMED]

We've just received official word from LG that both the T-Mobile G2x and the G-Slate BOTH have IPS displays. There's been a bit of debate about this as of late, whether the display on these devices were simply TFT or if they amped it up a few notches to the more expensive and more fantastic in both color and viewing angles In-Plane Switching (IPS.) What does this mean, you might ask? Why should I give one hoot? Because now you know you can watch Tron: Legacy with the BRIGHT lights!

T-Mobile G-Slate gets $100 earlybird discount

It's said that good things come to those who wait. Well, sometimes it pays to jump in early. T-Mobile is offering a $100 discount on a two year contract when users purchase the LG G-Slate and data plan before April 27th. But there's a catch.

T-Mobile G Slate confirms launch date as April 20

T-Mobile has finally officially confirmed the launch date for the LG Slate. Although we recently reported that T-Mobile stores had the G Slate in the back of stores already, the official launch date for the Android 3 (Honeycomb) tablet has been confirmed for a nationwide release on April 20th. And it will sell for $529.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and a two year contract for current T-Mobile customers. That's about $50 cheaper than the Motorola XOOM and $200 cheaper than a comparable iPad 2.

G-Slate shows up early on eBay

A seller on eBay is listing the LG G-Slate with a starting bid of $800, Buy it now at $1200. By contrast, T-Mobile lists the G-Slate as selling for $529.99 with a two year data plan and after $100 mail-in rebate. The listing says that the G-Slate is in stock and will ship at auction's end. That's pretty interesting considering that T-Mobile lists the Honeycomb tablet as "coming soon" and the launch date is still two weeks away.

T-Mobile assures customers, answers questions about the merger

T-Mobile has come out with assurances that customers of both AT&T and T-Mobile will see improved performance and more widespread 4G LTE deployment with the merger of both companies. C.O.O. Jim Alling explains that merging both companies allows for deployment of a "robust" 4G LTE network to 95% of the US population. Without the merger, neither company could accomplish this goal within the same time-frame. Alling also promises improved voice and data performance almost immediately after the networks are integrated.
