T-Mobile G-Slate

Slashgear gets a close look at the T-Mobile/LG G-Slate

T-Mobile is showcasing it's LG designed G-Slate at MWC this week.  It's a mid-range tablet with a nice 8.9 inch screen, fitting it nicely in between the 7 inch pocket and the beefier 10 inch category.  Specs include running a Tegra 2 processor for around 1Ghz in processing power and running Android 3.0 (honeycomb) which is as standard as iOS 4 is to the iPad now.   But it also has 3D which could make the viewing experience quite interesting.

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]

T-Mobile G-Slate Honeycomb Tablet in FCC Application?

Take a peek at this, it's an FCC application for an item by the FCC Model name of LG-V900. It features Wifi, AWS connectivity (making it compatible with T-Mobile's US network,) and well, it looks like a tablet - oh and it SAYS it's a tablet in the type. The only problem is the FCC filing that was filed back about a week ago, one that was also reported as possibly being the LG G-Slate: BE/V909 -- the only problem is, the one in this post is LG-V900, and that one was LGV-909.
