T-Mobile is once again dropping hints on the T-Mobile G-Slate and not providing the one thing that really matters, a release date. It’s great to know that the G-Slate will offer T-Mobile TV with live and on-demand TV including news, sports and full length entertainment but when, WHEN can I expect to enjoy T-Mobile TV on my G-Slate?
Is it gaming that you want? Well fear not because the G-Slate will come a pre-installed version of Need for Speed Shift HD. Featuring real-world physics, pixel-perfect car models and a wide range of authentic race tracks. Fully loaded on the G-Slate, Need for Speed SHIFT HD will feature HD graphics, a built-in accelerometer and a gyroscope.
Want to do some reading on your G-Slate? The G-Slate will come with the Zinio eReader billed as the largest online newsstand. You will find 75,000 digital magazines from 26 countries on board.
The G-Slate is expected to arrive in “Spring” according to T-Mobile and April 20th according to us. The G-Slate is expected to be priced around $529.99 after a $100 mail in rebate. While that pricing may be a little better than what the Xoom is fetching on the Verizon side of things, a 2 year contract for $529.99 on the G-Slate just doesn’t excite me.
