G-Slate

LG Optimus Pad aka G-Slate Destroyed by Transformers

The reviews are in, and it appears that LG, T-Mobile, and Optimus Prime have some talking to do. The following commercial is one that's been released in the past 24 hours by LG then quickly taken back down again, presumably because everyone in the world hates is so much. The ad spot shows the G-Slate, aka the LG Optimus Pad, transforming into the leader of the Go-Bots, Optimus Prime. This robot then gets his punch on with a Megatron of sorts, this evil robot turning out to be an embodiment of the Apple brand, (and we assume, the iPad.)

LG G-Slate demos anaglyphic 3D on video

LG's G-Slate has been caught on video doing its 3D thing, and it's bad news if you were expecting the sort of 3D technology we've seen on HDTVs in the living room of late. Instead, the G-Slate uses a basic anaglyphic system, phasing the picture into two red/blue images that will use passive colored-lens glasses to combine them into a 3D picture. It's all courtesy of a new video overview posted to YouTube, seemingly the latest in LG's attempt to slip the Honeycomb-based G-Slate out in every way bar actually giving reviewers one to play with. Still, we won't argue with a glance at all the ports and the docking station connector pins, and hopefully we'll have some hands-on time next week when Android Community heads to MWC 2011 to play with the European version of the G-Slate, the LG Optimus Pad.

LG gives G-Slate another video outing

To be honest we'd prefer a gallery of high-resolution photos and a full spec sheet about the LG G-Slate, rather than the company's apparent marketing strategy of squeezing the upcoming Honeycomb slate into promotional videos, but in the end we'll make do with what they give us. After showing up in Korea last month, courtesy of K-Pop star Seungri, the G-Slate has now cropped up again in a MysteryGuitarMan video. The two cameras get another brief showing, this time separated with a "with Google" metal band similar to what's on the back of the Optimus 2X, along with an LED flash and a smudge of ports across the bottom. Beyond that we're left enjoying the music and puzzling the strategy. [youtube XrOGWnyaYkE] [via Engadget]

G-Slate Finally Spotted, There’s the 3D Camera

The LG G-Slate has been the tablet talk outside of its disappointing presence at this year's CES. Rumors have been circulating that it would feature a glasses-free 3D display, but these were quickly disputed and replaced with a rumor of the inclusion of a 3D camera. It looks as if we have finally gotten an image of the device and we can clearly see the pair of cameras.

G-Slate Will Not Feature Glasses-Free Display?

The LG T-Mobile G-Slate was announced at this year's CES. And although it was greatly overlooked due to the fact that details were few and far between and no physical devices were present, it still will be a key player in the 2011 tablet war. Rumors started to pile in that the device would feature a glasses-free 3D display, and now this is being said to be incorrect, but it will have some 3D options for the user.

G-Slate may hit Europe in a model lacking 4G

We have seen and heard just about all of the details of the T-Mobile G-Slate tablet that is set to hit T-Mo in Europe and the US. We know that the thing is seeking its FCC approvals for the US already and will support 4G networks. Considering that most of us in the US and UK live in non-4G areas that capability might night be appealing to some that are interested in the tablet.
