LG and T-Mobile reveal more G-Slate morsels

LG and T-Mobile tell tales of all the cool things the G-Slate is capable of.

Last month, we briefly covered the T-Mobile/LG G-Slate at CES. While information was trickling in then, it seems the flood gates of information will soon be opened for all to willingly dive into.

On Wednesday, T-Mobile and LG released new information on its G-Slate tablet. As previously revealed, the G-Slate will run on Google's "optimized for tablets" operating system, Honeycomb , aka Android 3.0. As exciting as Honeycomb is, it won't be exclusive to the G-Slate and the device will need more than a new user interface to get us excited.

Here's a list of its attempt:

  • 8.9-inch "3D capable" multitouch display
  • 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • 32GB of internal memory
  • Built-in gyroscope
  • Built-in accelerometer
  • Ambient light sensor
  • Video chat over Wi-Fi or 4G network.
  • 720p on device playback
  • 1080p playback on external display via HDMI
  • Flash support

The G-Slate will also feature a rear-facing 3D stereoscopic camera-array, which looks to be made up of two cameras, operating in tandem to produce the 3D effect. This will allow people to record 1080p 3D videos and view 3D content on the device or an external display. Unfortunately, viewing 3D on the G-Slate will require glasses (booo!), and they are the red and blue variety (double booo!).

In addition, the G-Slate will feature a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, plus a front-facing 2-megapixel camera.

LG and T-Mobile expect a release this spring, so look for more coverage in the coming weeks.
