TechSpot: T-Mobile G-Slate / LG Optimus Pad Tablet Review

The T-Mobile G-Slate is an Android 3.0 Honeycomb-powered tablet computer built by LG. In fact, the device is a near clone of LG's 3G-capable Optimus Pad, first showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year.

The G-Slate features a slightly smaller display than the Apple's iPad and Motorola's Xoom, which makes it lighter and thereby easier to hold to a certain extent. It also sports a great industrial design and can record 3D 720p HD videos with its dual-5 megapixel cameras. All of this is powered by a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor that hums along at 1GHz, making sure that even 3D games run smoothly on its high-res touchscreen display.

People have been debating which display size is best for tablets. For my money, the 8.9-inch display on the T-Mobile G-Slate is sitting in the sweet spot. Apart from the continuing lack of tablet-aware Android applications, and a pretty high total price of ownership (on contract, at least), there's very little to dislike about this device.

Because we live in a capitalistic society where these corporations don't worry about what us as the consumers want but what makes them profit more at the end of the year and suckering people into a contract just to use Wi-Fi 90% of the time anyway makes them more money.

Why, WHY are they trying to sell tablets with no WiFi-only variant? Why?

Right it's like having a TV only to play DVDs and VHS, aahhh very old times.
I love my iPad 2, BTW, 3 weeks and still no tired of messing around!

Mhmmm....looks good but what the hell do I care for a 3d recorder and I like the smaller and lighter design, without the loss of speed or quality. But the price better be low oir at pasr with other tablets

If I recall, the 3D recorder was designed specifically for those with an LG (polarized) 3D TV... in hopes to boost sales...

Owning a 3D TV myself, having the option to record is def. nice (as long as the price isn't ridicules)

Since when did having an additional feature like 3D recording be a bad thing? U will alwayz have the option to record 2D videos.
