The Other Guys: HTC Flyer and LG G-Slate Near Launch

One records in 3D, the other launches in March. Can either survive the Xoom?

We've hit pretty hard on the Xoom and the Playbook and the other big tablets of CES. But what about HTC and LG?

The latter is expected to launch a tablet for T-Mobile's network. The G-Slate may support glasses-free 3D and even 3D recording through its dual rear-facing cameras. The processor is a Tegra 2 and Android 3.0 Honeycomb will be the launch OS.

There will be a WiFi and 3G version of this tablet. T-Mo appears to be looking at a special 3D Data Plan, which likely means higher costs and HSPA+ speeds. The G-Slate is expected to be fully unveiled at MWC 2010.

Then we have HTC's semi-mysteries Flyer tablet. Digitimes reports that the first models in this line will launch in March. The OS will be 2.3 and the design is said to be reminiscent of the HTC Desire. HTC and their mystery carrier will attempt to launch ahead of the PlayBook and the Xoom.

One rumor has the Xoom launching at MWC. If that is the case, HTC will have to revise their game-plan.

The Flyer is set for a 3.0 upgrade as soon as the option becomes available. Two more tablets will launch in June with the Android 3.0 OS.
