LG G-Slate Makes Completely Random Appearance In 2D, Will It Come With 3D?

Not impressed by the Dell Streak 7, then you better keep you sight set on the LG G-Slate as it’ll certainly provide healthy competition. Of course, other than the name of the G-Slate and a few possible leaked specs, what we know about the device is pretty much next to nothing. Will it have 3D or will it not? Will it come in pink and purple polka dots or will it not?

At least one individual, MysteryGuitarMan has his hands on the LG G-Slate, and it comes right after we catch a glimpse of the unit in a Korean music video. I don’t know if it’s interesting or downright odd that LG and T-Mobile are being tight lipped on the device while letting completely random (albeit celebrities in perhaps their own little corner of the world) tease us with half second glimpses. What’s more interesting though, is as Engadget points out, the back of the device is completely different from the Korean music video. This time we see the metallic strip with “with Google” branding ala the Optimus 2X.

This is just getting strange, someone needs to get some clear shots of this and post them for all to see. We need to know things about this G-Slate already!

    Not on contract and not in the first 6 months of its release but I think I WILL be buying that thing.

    It would be really cool if that metal strip turned into a kickstand for that tablet. It would be even cooler if that tablet was released nationally during MWC for a contract price of $199.

    Somehow, I don’t think that would happen. I’m guessing released in July for $399 on contract :(.

    Judging by the apparent second camera lens I would assume 3d…

    • Deff

      agreed. how can you say it is 2d when there are clearly two cameras?

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Still waiting on that Washer and Dryer Set.

    Anyway, on topic, it could be possible that the Branded one is a different version of the LG Slate than the Silver Strip Branded one. One could have better specs for those that want to pay more like the WeTab or Moorestown Tablets.

    OK. For those who care I just had my last conversation with T-Mobile Eng. Bottom line, loyalty pushed me to a full upgrade even though I am only one year in. Big deal. T-mobile has admitted to me that HSPA+ is a theoretical 21 but I realistic 3-5!!! Thats it. Then they had the brass ones to tell be that I can ger 42 in 6 ,months. Of course, I would have to buy a Rocket 3.0 at full price. And the 42 would really be 6-8!! What a farce!!

    Here is what is happening. They don’t have the backhaul in place for most markets. Only a few select. Such as the handwired fiberoptic at CES.

    I asked how I was supposed to have a video conference with Carly at 4Mbits. Their response. You cant. Well duh! The joke of it is that they give you the tools with the Datastick to see the dataservice and not rely on the icon whicn is flat out wrong.

    Someone posted that the maps are wrong. I am here to tell you that they are.

      I lost some belief in TMO’s 4G speeds once I saw the MT4G get the same speed as my Vibrant. I think TMONEWS.com should do a poll to see what kind of speeds people are actually getting.

      As SOON as the GS4G comes out I’m gonna go to a TMO store and do a 3 way test with a Vibrant, MT4G, and the GS4G and I bet it will be the same.

      • frigadroid

        Yup no doubt. Remember the first vicious rumor about froyogate?

      I think someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed. How can they only be expecting those speeds when we have proof from multiple users that people are already getting high speeds, and not to mention I use video chat already. So your telling me that you cant video chat at 4mbps? Well Im telling you ive video chatted at less than that.

      Not to mention that tmobile engineering isnt a call center,they dont have a phone number, they dont have a way for you to tall them. If they did then why dont you post the number here for us to see?

      I think you just called tmobile because you wanted a free phone, raised hell, argued to speak to a manager, and got someone who just wanted to get you off the phone.

      • frigadroid

        It is what it is like stated theoretically speaking. News flash all the carriers stretch the truth to the limits, to put it lightly even our beloved tmob. What speed you get has many variables to consider be an intelligent consumer and don’t buy in to all the hype, just test yourself and get what works best for you in your area.

    • RussellB1724

      The 42 Mbps will be around 30 Mbps real time on a data stick when its available this year. Watch the real time download #’s video from CES if you need proof and stop pedaling lies.

    • TiredOfMorons

      What is wrong with people? Just because the device is capable of 21/ 14.4 / 7.2/ 3.6 or whatever, it doesn’t mean you will get it consistently get those speeds. I have been tethering my myTouch 4G to my laptop since I got it and it takes less than 2 seconds to load any average site. I stream videos 95% of the time without an extra buffering. It’s called a BRAIN, use it.

      • Anonymous

        No doubt 3-5Mbps is fast but a Vibrant shouldn’t get the same speeds as a MT4G in a heavily coated HSPA+ area. Thats like two 2011 Corvette’s of the same model with the same HP even though one had a Turbocharger put in professionally.

        • MBregar

          Not quite. The only real difference between HSPA+7.2/14/21/XX/XXX is the phones peak capable speed. In essence, they don’t communicate differently with the network, so if you are in an area that the network is limited to, say 5mbps, they will both clock in very close to one another.

          Your analogy implies that one phone is more robust than the other, a better way to make a car analogy is that one Corvette has a speed limiter at 7mph, another at 14mph, and a third at 21. They are all travelling on a road that had a speed limit of 21mph, but due to all of the other cars on the road, traffic is only moving 5mph. The result is that all three cars are doing the same speed. Fortunately, the DOT is about to add some extra lanes, and since there won’t be a drastic increase in the amount of cars travelling on it, we can expect the flow of traffic to improve greatly. Now, the first corvette will only be able to hit 7mph, but the other two will be doing well above that.

        • Anonymous

          And the extra lanes is the backhaul right? I can understand it that way.

        • MBregar

          You got it.

        • MBregar

          And for what it’s worth, there are already places where the existing 21mbs network is sufficient to notice a difference between the 7 and 14mbs devices. Where I live in Milwaukee, there are many areas where this is the case.

        exactly, you have to take into account everyone else on the network. 21MB is the best you can see, in ideal conditions.

      well my vibrant on hspa+ gets 5Mbs on a daily basis, so your supposed revelation is FALSE!! Friends have G2 and mytouch 4G and have seen 7+ on a daily basis. Just spread falsehoods somewhere else

    • 4G_or_not_4G

      You must be a plant, because we are all getting those speeds currently, I average 2 – 5 MB here in DC, and while in Tampa was averaging 4 – 8 MB. I have also had the pleasure of tethering a buddies Iphone4G to my phone so that he can get 2 MB throughput, which is the fastest he has ever gotten on that phone…hahaha!

  • AnonyMouse

    I have a feeling that 2011 is going to be a good year for LG. Not just with the g slate or the optimus 2x but probably a lot of other phones and things coming up.

    • Android_Enthu

      I agree with you…

  • http://twitter.com/MannyC_ Emanuel Cedeno

    You know what would be cool…(probably never gonna happen but) if the G slate is apart of the g series….you know it has the same silver strip “with google” as the optimus2x. It would be cool if the optimus2x came out here with stock android and was also apart of the g series too. Weren’t there rumors of it coming to Tmo some time around March?

    • http://www.dolphinfree.net Tenkely

      Agreed. TMO needs to ramp up their vanilla Android line up, keep the G line in front of the MyTouch line.

      I thought that was the whole reason it was called the ‘G’ Slate?

    My Nexus One is getting during peek hours between 3.2 and 5.5 mb DL and UL is a solid 1.5mb. My MyTouch 4G is getting between 3.5 and 7.7 mb DL and my UL is a solid 1.5mb. Those are peek hour speeds and are very consistent. The speeds keep getting faster on a daily basis.
    Saying that I want and need Tegra powered device. T-Mobile must deliver Dual powered processor device to to their loyal customers. I want one badly.

    Hasn’t anyone pointed to the obvious? It has 2 cameras on the back for stereoscopic pictures making it more than likely it will be a 3D enabled device.

    G1….G2…..G-Slate. anyone see a pattern emerging ? Its obviously part of the G series and not the optimus series. wow, u geeks really get a boner for something and think everything from that company has to be the same thing. I for one see no reason to ever leave the G series. i had the G, have the G2, I may pick up a G-slate……then definitely get the inevitable G3 next year when my contract is up again. They are THE BEST phones, period. and unlike my G1, my G2 will get all the updates through next year. plus I’m not rich like all u mofos, to get every new phone that comes out because it makes me stiff. got the G series ? stay with the G series…..
