Reviews for the T-Mobile G-Slate

70% T-Mobile G-Slate
Source: PC World English
The T-Mobile G-Slate is a reasonable tablet choice if you like the idea of a tablet that, in terms of size, fits in between the rest. But it's worth the investment only if you're willing to lock into a contract. At $750 without a contract, it's far too expensive for what you get--even though the 3D video capture provides novel entertainment.

70% T-Mobile G-Slate with Google (by LG)
Source: PC Mag English
Honeycomb gets a lot of the little things right—like a great multitasking view bar, and excellent notifications for email and calendar. These are implemented better than Apple's iOS, but the iPad's overall OS experience remains smoother and easier to organize. Even the RIM BlackBerry PlayBook ($499, 2.5 stars)—maligned for shipping without enough necessary features intact—has a less cluttered, more easily-navigated user default interface (though most of the Honeycomb screens can be customized). So, Honeycomb gets the small stuff right, but here's hoping the next tablet OS from Google tones down the unnecessarily busy home screen(s) and simplifies things like Apple and RIM have done.

LG Optimus Pad / T-Mobile G-Slate Tablet Review
Source: Techspot English
But no matter what the numbers, the T-Mobile G-Slate is a really nice tablet. It's nice to hold, easy on the eyes, and runs flawlessly. We're still waiting for more Android tablet applications, but those are sure to come eventually.

T-Mobile G-Slate Review
Source: Slashgear English
Honeycomb still falls short of being mass-market ready, though it’s certainly full of promise. As Google has shown with its smartphone iterations of Android, it has no intention of standing still and allowing iOS to dominate the market. The G-Slate makes – with things like Flash Player support out of the box – a better first-impression than the XOOM managed, but it still lacks the general appeal of the iPad 2. A few solid firmware updates could address that, but it will take T-Mobile chiseling away at the G-Slate’s price before we could wholeheartedly recommend the tablet.

This display diagonal is quite small for tablets.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
