LG G-Slate Preview, 3D Viewing And Recording Honeycomb Tablet

LG didn’t plunge into the Android Tablet race early like it’s competitor Samsung. The company earlier announced that Android 2.2 wasn’t mature enough for tablets and that it would wait for Android 3.0. It’s recent products, LG Optimus One and LG Optimus 2x are noteworthy.

LG G-Slate is a LG Optimus series tablet running Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system also known as the LG Optimus PAD.

Here’s the list of promising features that separates this tablet from the rest (in a good way).


Interesting features
  • Runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb which is built specifically for tablets.
  • Supports 4G networks for faster browsing (to be released with T-Mobile in the US)
  • Is a Google tablet (would come bundled with Android market etc)
  • 8.9″ inch 3D Capacitive multi-touch display (didn’t you think a 7’’ Samsung Galaxy Tab was lame?)
  • 2MP front facing camera for those “intimate” video chats *ahem*.
  • Two Rear facing Stereoscopic 3D cameras capture 3D videos
  • Can record Full HD (1080p) videos also
  • 1Ghz Dual Core NVIDIA Tegra2 processor.
  • 32 GB Internal flash memory (going the Apple way?)
  • 5MP rear camera with LED Flash (Don’t hope for a DSLR here, it’s a tablet)
  • HDMI output in case you wish to watch the movie on your tablet on your Full HD TV.
  • Micro-USB Charging (Will you companies use 1 standard already?).
  • Has connectors for docking station (does it come free?)
  • Decent 10 hours playback.
  • Gyroscope and an accelerometer for those fun games.

Here’s a video presentation of the tablet’s features.

This is one tablet that sets a new high standard for the much rumored iPad2. This tablet will be released sometime around March 2011 when the Android 3.0 Honeycomb will be debuted through it’s first tablet, the Motorola Xoom.
