The LG G-Slate and LG Optimus 2X would arguably be among the most exciting devices to launch on the T-Mobile network and we just might see both devices arrive in late March/early April according to our sources. We haven’t been able to pinpoint an exact date but our sources are confident we should see both devices around that timeframe possibly with an extra surprise built into the LG Tablet.

We aren’t exactly sure what this could mean but our source was able to find listed with the LG Tablet an accessory titled “3D Glasses.” Is it possible?  Is it even remotely possible the LG G-Slate could have some sort of built in 3D capability? We’re chalking this one up firmly in the rumor column hoping it pans out to be something incredibly awesome but until we find out more, I’m not betting the farm on anything 3D based. Still, 3D would be a ridiculous feature to have!

    vehicle bracket please.

    integration with current phone line so ANDROID account is both on phone and tablet in sync.

    BIG BIG BIG BATTERY please.

    BLUETOOTH HID for bluetooth keyboards please or a usb port to plug one in.

    ther’s going to be a flood of new tablets this year.

    making it do tricks is cool but, making it useful in as many situations as possible is going to make a winner or not.

    if i can go from my living room to my 18 wheeler to my jeep to my party barge to the tankbag of my motorcycle it’s going to be an EPIC winner for me.

    imagine how many other possible uses for it, just thought of another, digitized repair manuals for all your stuff.

    like i said just get out there and make it capable of doin’ lots and lots of stuff.

    So this video is just Google’s Android 3.0 video in a tablet-shaped frame. How disappointing.

    Am I the only one here that thinks LG G-Slate sounds redundant, why not be the LG Slate, why the need for the extra G?

    • pantlesspenguin

      I think perhaps other iterations of the slate down the line will have letters in front, too. Like, a few months after the G-Slate is released, we’ll hear rumors of the N-Slate or somthing.

        Makes some sense, LG G-Slate still just doesn’t run off the tongue…lol

      Maybe they couldnt get rights to the word Slate? iPad, Streak 7, XOOM, Galaxy Tab are all pretty unique names but Slate alone is pretty common ya know? My guess.

    • CrazyFunky

      Fly like a G-Slate like a G-Slate?

    • Hate, Y U No Love?

      I just assumed Android = Google = ‘G’ = G-slate.
      (Could have been A-Slate… but that, hilariously, sounds generic).

      I also just assumed it would be known as ‘The Tmobile G-slate by LG’

      I also assumed it was (stupidly) trying to play off the iPad name. I pad… G slate. “insignificant letter followed by type of device” naming scheme. Would be funny if RIM called theirs the ‘B-book’.

      But I probably assume too much. Everyone else is so much smarter than me.

    And still no pics of this mythical G-Slate?

    Please please tell me it will be hspa+. What a shame if it isn’t.

      I honestly don’t know how much I’d need HSPA+ yet. My G2 almost never gets about 7 Mbps as is, unless I’m right next to the tower, so it’s not like this phone would be slow. And even when things get upgraded past 21 Mbps, it’s all backwards compatible, and I know I’d be more than happy with my phone hitting 7 Mbps everywhere I go…

      • Chris

        almost never gets more than 7 Mbps*

    I heard rumors of a 3d lg tablet coming to tmobile in 2011 from a pretty high up employee so im pretty sure thats wut the extra surprise is!

      Employee? I’d rather hear it from his employer.

    If the LG Optimus 2X is coming to T-mobile my decision to pass on the G2 and the MT4G will have paid off!

    • Antofffka

      HTC is whoring phones. Quantity vs Quality. My myTouch 3G is barely cost $140 bucks now. No way I am buying HTC again. By the way, MT4G looks kind of cheep.

  • http://facebook.com/optimus2x Paul

    Huge disappointment. The rest of the world has the Optimus 2X for a few months while T-Mobile lets it age into second-tier status. What’s the point of waiting, dummies?

  • Droid

    By the time this releases… my Nexus S will be on Honeycomb. Other phones will come out and better ones will be announced. Seriously, why til Spring time? Get rid of that POS Cliq 2 and bring this out instead.

      Honeycomb is for Tablets only.

    This is so depressing. Do we have any dual-core phones?

    • TMOemo

      TMO once again poops the bed; not explicitly saying “we have a DC phone”. For me i need a hard date and it better be march, or im gone.

  • SadTmoCustomer

    CAN T-MOBILE STOP CLAIMING THE LG OPTIMUS 2X? IT IS PRETTY OBVIOUS THAT WE ARE NOT GETTING THE PHONE SO WHY KEEP SAYING ARRIVING IN LATE MARCH? THEY HAVEN’T NAMED A CARRIER SO JUST GIVE IT UP CAUSE ITS REALLY DEPRESSING. I’M SURE NO 1 CARES ABOUT 2 PATHETIC TABLETS AND A SO CALLED 4G SPEED THAT COULD MAKE EVERYTHING WORSE. I AM SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING VERIZON………CAUSE WE ALL KNOW THEY GET THE BEST QUALITIES.

    • Mark24

      i had verizon for 2 years and got rid of there service asap when the contract ended calls would drop all the time pissed me off horrible horrible service i remember that advertisement dont be afraid of dead zones oh yeah false advertisement no wonder they dont say it no more , then i went to t-mobile and have now been with them for 5 years im looking foward to the optimus 2x and tmo take out the cliq 2 and bring this one out instead at least before march

  • Richg13

    Just left Ces and saw the optimus 2x. The specs don’t include TMO’s frequency. However the optimus black looks like future tmo device. Both are super light and have more customized ui than the optimus t. The optimus 2x is a sweet phone, too bad it looks like it’s going elsewhere

    • Anonymous

      Lol LG black and optimistic 2x. Have the same 3g bands there both gsm phone both of them could go to tmobile if tmobile was smart and I saw a youtube video the guy said the black has s tmobile sim card.in it at ces but dosent mean its going there he said they unlocked them and ran them on tmobile to be honest I think the black is going to att and 2x tmobile u can always overclock the LG blacks processer and get a better phone then the 2x either way ur getting a good phone

  • SadTmoCustomer

    What do you mean by TMO’s Frequency? Is the LG Black Dual core?

  • Richg13

    Here’s pictures from LG’s CES product guide, you decide.

    why do people keep talkin about having honeycomb on their phones?. if you know anything about android, then you would know that honeycomb was designed specifically for tablets!

    • Anonymous
