Fan Fiction At Its Finest With The T-Mobile G-Slate

This may be one of the greatest pieces of fan faction video I have ever seen, it’s just that awesome. No matter which poison you pick, Apple or Android, you have to admire the quality of the work that someone put into making this. For the Android faithful, you’ll get a little more appreciation out of the subtle digs at Apple as the T-Mobile G-Slate (Optimus Pad) show it’s transforming stuff.

Regardless, I’m a huge Transformers fan and if you catch our @TmoNews twitter, I’m super excited for the next movie and since this involves Optimus Prime and Megatron, it’s just that awesome.

    Well if a fan can make this kind of video…..Then there should be no excuse for T-Mobile not to step up with some cool commercials!

    • remixfa.

      i say just hire the dude and let him do the advertising. of course, there will be licsencing issues to work out, but that could be a very effective add campain.

  • MT4G

    Thank goodness its being called something other than pad or tab. G-Slate is a great name for a very cool looking machine

  • dstewstar

    Nice promo; now Tmo it is your turn.:)

      Tmobile will probably use one of those retarded Kardashians to promote it.

    I have two thoughts about this:

    1) I really hope whoever made this isn’t sitting in their parent’s basement and actually are putting their skills to use

    2) I really liked the promo until the VERY end where the voice said “Optimus Pad!” Sounded like some super tampon to me..

    Love it. iPad’s are for girls on their time of the month.

    Go G-Slate!

    More Apple jealousy how sweet.
    Hopefully little baby android will 1 day stand on his own and not have to be jealous of apple.
    Although it’s funny that 1 phone can out sell all of android.
    LOL 500k iPhones sold in 2 hours between 3-5am.
    The next ipad will probably out sell all the android pads combined.
    This isn’t stuff I make up these are real numbers and reality.
    I personally would never buy an iphone or ipad but you can’t help but respect apple for what they’ve done.
    But the google fan babies do crack me up.

    • Deff

      if you’d never buy an apple product, and you badmouth android, does that make you a hypocrite, or just ignorant? Because as far as i see it, there are three breeds of smart-phones out there; androids, iphones, and WP7s. If you are truly a WP7 lover fine, but don’t disrespect the fact that some people like android. Last time I checked no one here is a “google fan baby” either.

        No it means I can own a product but be realistic about other products.
        Thankfully I have the ability to reason and just because I own a product doesnt mean I cant criticize it.
        So your question is flawed because there are more choices.
        I am not disrespecting people who like Android.
        I like Android silly! I own 3 Android phones!

      lol you’re calling WHO the fanboi’s? Android sales were up over 800% last quarter, and Android is poised to take domination of the world market in smart phone OS. RIM and iOS have been steadily declining, Android has continued to gain. Funny how iFans get so offended at one funny little jab at their precious Apple wares.

    • remixfa.

      what an idget. you do realize that android has surpassed apple in total world sales?? you do realize that android hasnt been out as long as apple, and is increasing every year while apple slipped to THIRD place behind RIM and Android. In another year, android will be the number 1 smartphone OS… with apple in third.

      so yea, u are just making it up.

      on a positive note, that vid was badass. kudos to whoever made it. not even about the content, just the over all detail and presentation was badass.

      • ATL Guy

        yes worldwide sales with what like 50 or more different Android based phones?
        Lets see what would happen if THE 1 SINGLE IPHONE where worldwide?
        Google should be thankful that the Iphone is only on 2 carriers.

    • Anonymous

      One phone vs. an army IS damn impressive, but Android will be the number one OS worldwide before long. Still, props to Apple for convincing people to buy the same device over and over and over again.

      • ATL Guy

        As I stated I am an Android user and will be going forward for awhile and have zero plans of getting an Iphone even if it came to tmobile.
        By the reactions my post got it just proves my point that the extreme Google Fanboys are just as bad as the extreme Apple Fanboys who cry about Android.
        Its like some people take Apple personally as if Steve Jobs came to their house and took a crap on their rug.

      I use a G2. I like the plain vanilla android. I get mediocre speeds and signal is inconsistent at best (especially indoors). I am excited for the Pyramid but without good coverage its just a paper weight…

    • ATL Guy

      Yes that is one spiffy sounding phone. I just hope it doesnt have HTC Sense. I went from the Nexus 1 to the MT4G and have been having issues with contact snyc that I never encountered with the N1 or previous Android phones I used.

      • Tortionist

        Interesting, I synced my contacts the first time on my MT4G then turned syncing off and have no problems with it.

      • Nero

        When adding contacts with MT4G it is set as default “add to tmobile” or something like that and can’t be edited after a contact is saved nor can the default be changed. Work around; when adding a new contact, before clicking save scroll up and be sure to “save account as” (there should be a drop down) to your Google account. I hope that helps.

      I’m happily using a Vibrant but I do plan on buying the “Pyramid” if it does come to TMO. Honestly, since the “Pyramid” is going to who was it? Vodafone?? I’m not really believing TMO is gonna get it OR a 4.3″ HTC Android UNTIL I SEE IT!!

        That would be a bummer if they dont get the Pyramid.

          Yes you say that but thus far no proof.
          You did the same with the 2x and again thus far nothing. Not even on the LG site.
          Both are rumors.

      G2. But, i’ll either have a Samsung Google Nexus S soon or a Sidekick 4G. Either way I’ll be getting it from Best Buy :D. They got me technology proof’d with their new buy back program, & their own insurance policy. Can we say Covered like Geico? :D

    Xoom over priced, this G-Slate (err Optimus Pad) is looking more n more attractive

    • whosaidwhat

      The wifi version of the Xoom is coming and no one knows the price so let’s not call the Xoom overpriced until we get an official price for both the 3G/4G and wifi only versions.

      How do you know the G-Slate will be any cheaper than the Xoom? The Xoom is NOT overpriced but Motorola (and LG for that matter) will be totally stupid if they don’t release lesser spec’ed versions. Some people say the IPad 2 is not out yet and it will get a hardware upgrade and probably stays at the same price. Well, in that case the Ipad will be playing catchup and not necessary better than any 2011 Honeycomb tab or WebOS tab.

      Wifi only and 16GB of storage will be much cheaper than a 3G/4G radio plus 32GB of storage. Having an SD card slot allows the user to easily upgrade the storage so I don’t need 32GB or 3G tab.

        Sup with what? The Transformers movie was horrible. I didn’t even bother seeing the second one, as people I know who actually liked the first one said it was worse. Michael Bay took what I loved and made it a joke. He always loves to direct movies with incoherent plots and lots of explosions.

          I’ll admit it was/they are shallow movies but what can you expect from a movie about Transformers? Lots of action, cheesy comedy and the best part is Transformers. But Transformers: The Movie FTW though!

        • ATL Guy

          The original was a great movie. The second not so much. Hopefully they can pull a comeback with the 3rd.

    First off, this isn’t “fan fiction” at all. It’s a fanvideo, period. Fiction involves prose, and this…has none. Also, you called it “fan faction” at one point, which is…what?
