LG ELECTRONICS HAS announced that it will be launching its Android 3.0 tablet which is currently known as the G-slate on T-Mobile’s network in the US sometime in March. The tablet is expected to be officially unveiled at the Mobile World Congress which kicks off on the 14th of this month, but LG has kindly shared plenty of details about the new tablet ahead of the launch.
Two of the key features of the G-slate is the 1280×768 resolution 8.9-inch screen and the fact that it runs Android 3.0, also known as Honeycomb. This should make it a much better media consumption device that all other Android tablets to date. The G-slate is powered by a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz and it’ll be able to play back 1080p video content without too much effort.
The G-slate features 32GB of built in storage memory, it has a 2 Megapixel camera for video calls and it features a pair of cameras on the rear for 3D video recording. Additionally it also has an HDMI port, a 6400mAh battery, a built in gyroscope and native support for Adobe Flash 10.1. As for the rest of the details and crucially, pricing, we’re going to have to wait until the MWC kicks off on the 14th of February.S|A
