While LG’s G-Slate was officially announced back at CES earlier this year, details had been scarce till now. With the release of T-Mobile’s other 4G tablet (Dell Streak 7), it seems the G-Slate has now taken center stage. As a result, LG and T-Mobile have published a press release detailing their newest tablet’s inner workings.
According to the document the 8.9” G-Slate will be powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor, and will feature Android’s Honeycomb OS. The G-Slate will also have 32 GB of internal storage, a gyroscope, an accelerometer, Wi-Fi and T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+. The G-Slate will allow viewing of 720p quality on the device and output of 1080p video over HDMI.
As far as the 3D experience goes, the G-Slate features a pair of rear-facing cameras. One of the cameras will be a stereoscopic video camera capable of 1080p 3D recording, and the other will be a normal 5 MP camera with LED flash. Users will be able to take 3D videos using the two cameras, and will be able to view 3D content with the aid of 3D glasses. The G-Slate also features a front-facing 2MP camera for video-conferencing.
As of today, the only word on release date is “this spring” and no exact price has been set.
