LG G-Slate 3-D Tablet Reveals a Few Surprises
The LG G-Slate received a lot of hype at CES this year not for what it revealed, but for what it kept secret: namely, almost everything. Now LG has released details about the Android tablet, and there are a few surprises.
First of all, LG confirmed speculation regarding Android 3.0 Honeycomb being the operating system for this tablet.
The biggest surprise, though, was just how far LG would go with 3-D. The LG G-Slate not only can display 3-D images (using glasses), but a dual-camera setup on the backside can take 3-D images as well, which naturally are viewable on the device. The cameras can take 3-D pictures as well as 1080p high-definition video in 3-D.
LG did not specify whether the G-Slate tablet will require active or passive 3-D glasses , but the 9-inch tablet can also shunt 1080p content to other devices over an HDMI connection.
Inside is a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor , 32GB of storage, Wi-Fi, 3.5G (T-Mobile's HSPA+) and a front-facing camera for video chat.
The LG G-Slate is destined for the T-Mobile network this March, according to LG. There is no specific pricing info yet.
