LG G-Slate: official details revealed

LG G-Slate: official details revealedWe're still not altogether sure what connectivity it'll boast when it hits the UK, but we do now know exactly what else LG's 4G-friendly G-Slate tablet will have to offer thanks to an official press release.

The G-Slate will be launched in the UK through T-Mobile, where it'll feature 4G connectivity using the HSPA+ tech, but while we'll have to rely on good ole' 3G here in the UK, it's not 3G but rather 3D that promises to set the G-Slate apart.

LG is putting down a mobile 3D marker in a big way this year, and while the G-Slate won't have the glasses-free autostereoscopic capability of the Optimus 3D smartphone, it still breaks new ground for the tablet market.

The reason you'll need the shades with the G-Slate is because of its screen size, which comes in at a middle-of-the-road 8.9in. It's an iPad-beating HD panel, though, which should please video lovers.

And like the Optimus 3D we told you about yesterday, it's not just 3D viewing that the G-Slate offers. Thanks to dual stereoscopic cameras you'll be able to record 3D footage at 1080p too, and the imaging good news continues thanks to the presence of 5-megapixel back and 2-megapixel front stills snappers.

The G-Slate was first shown off at CES, and like so many slates unveiled there boasts the now-familiar combo of Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and Android Honeycomb operating system.

Given that the G-Slate press release comes from T-Mobile in the US, it doesn't bring us any closer to knowing when and in what form the G-Slate will arrive on UK shores, but we'll be keeping our ear to the ground for further details.
