T-Mobile G-Slate

LG trashes tablets, decides to focus on smartphones

The folks from LG have announced some news lately that doesn't come as much surprise to me. Remember the LG G-Slate tablet? Yea I don't either. They released it way last year as one of the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets, and it still sits on Android 3.1 Honeycomb to this day. With almost no support whatsoever they've been focused heavily on their smartphones, and apparently that will be the focus moving forward.

T-Mobile sale: Amaze 4G, Springboard and G-Slate for just $49 this weekend

There have been a few sales going on over the holidays, but it looks like T-Mobile is out to beat them for the new year. The carrier is preparing a sale for this weekend, from Friday, January 6th through Sunday, January 8th. The sale is (perhaps not by coincidence) scheduled right before CES 2012. If you're in the market for a few specific Android models, you'll want to pay close attention. Without a doubt, the highlight of the sale is the current leader in T-Mobile's lineup, the HTC Amaze 4G, which will be reduced from $229.99 to just $49.99.

T-Mobile LG G-Slate 3.1 Honeycomb Update Brings a Locked Bootloader

Sadly we have some bad news for you modders that happen to own the LG G-Slate. While recent devices like the G2x, Optimus 3D and even the G-Slate itself have shipped with unlocked bootloaders and were easy to hack, root, and mod. It appears LG has shifted positions and will now start locking bootloaders, a change we are not thrilled to see that is for sure.

T-Mobile Aims Android Tablet Rentals at Angel Stadium

This summer T-Mobile has begun offering tablet rentals at the Los Angeles Angels home stadium for an "enhanced experience" for baseball fans across the board. Fans can rent one of two tablets at one of two locations in the stadium, one of these locations being an actual fully-functional T-Mobile mobile store, their tablet choices being the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch or the newer LG G-Slate with 3D capabilities and a dual-core processor from NVIDIA. I think you know which one we'd choose. Both tablets are available for rent for the whole baseball game for $10.

T-Mobile LG G-Slate Android 3.1 Update Rolling out Today

We haven't heard much from LG and their G-Slate since it was launched back in April but the 8.9" 3D capable device is still chugging along. In case users and owners were wondering about future upgrades I'm happy to report that the LG G-Slate should start seeing the OTA update to Android 3.1 Honeycomb today, or early tomorrow. Basically I'd just start hitting "check for updates" right now if I owned one.

Best Buy Takes Tablets Seriously with Massive Floor Setting

Starting this week in earnest, Best Buy will be revolutionizing the way you see tablets. That is, they're dedicating quite a bit of floor space to the cause, and you're not going to be able to see the laptops and the desktop computers without first having to get through the tablet gallery. In a move that can only point toward one thing, Best Buy's suddenly shown their understanding of the way the market's turning, and turning quick. In addition, as I'm sure you've already guessed, the majority of these tables are Androids, or in the case of the Barnes & Noble tablets, have Android in them, and Best Buy has most of them in stock!

LG Optimus 3D Review

Welcome to the tool with which you will enter into a 3D world you never before imagined possible. Its a fantasy land of graphics that pop right down into the device, allowing you to see games and movies and photos like never before! At least that's what the pitch is, right? There's this device and the LG G-Slate out already plus the HTC EVO 3D, all of them joining the 3D bandwagon to see how it fares in the mobile world. We've already reviewed the T-Mobile G-Slate back here, and the HTC EVO 3D isn't quite ready to go yet, now how does the Optimus contender contend? We shall see!

LG Optimus Pad arrives in UK today

The HTC Flyer isn't the only tablet arriving in the UK today. Carphone Warehouse has confirmed that the LG Optimus Pad - aka the T-Mobile G-Slate in the US - is now on sale, offering Android 3.0 Honeycomb and a 3D camera array for stills and video. Your money gets you a 10.1-inch display - which can show 3D footage, as long as you wear the bundled red/cyan glasses - along with twin cameras, WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth. Inside is NVIDIA's dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 chipset. The Optimus Pad will be available from £299.99 on a £25 per month (24 month) contract, which includes 5GB of data, or for £749.99 stand alone. More details on the tablet in our full review of the G-Slate. [vms f205953f9d3d7974bdd7]

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!
