Today is a big launch day for mobile gadgets. The BlackBerry PlayBook is now on sale and so is the LG G-Slate Android tablet from T-Mobile. According to TmoNews the G-Slate launches today. I did not see any official T-Mobile communication about it, but several tech sites have published reviews of the G-Slate today.
With a T-Mobile contract the G-Slate costs you $529. Without any commitment the G-Slate is priced at $750. The LG G-Slate stands out a bit from the HoneyComb Tablets with its unique long design, 3D cameras and 3D viewer.
Other features of the G-Slate include 8.9-inch screen, 5MP rear cameras, 32GB storage, Tegra 2 CPU at 1GHz and T-Mobile's 4G data connectivity.
The G-Slate stands out when compared to the Motorola Xoom or other HoneyComb tablets, but whether or not that will make a difference in sales remains to be seen. Being unique is not always good. Joshua Topolsky, former Engadget Chief, says in his review that the G-Slate is uncomfortably long.
