LG’s Android tablet has been in the works for quite some time, but most anything beyond that has been pure speculation, until now.
Seems LG has teamed up with T-Mobile, and their tablet will be known as the G-slate. With a name like that, it will be very popular with gangsters, but the choice of making it run Android Honeycomb 3.0 ensures friendship with other demographics as well. Add 4G to the mix, and even the snobbiest of Apple fans will secretly yearn for it.
The joint press release promises “the Honeycomb user experience improves on Android favorites such as widgets, multi-tasking, browsing, notifications and customization.
On top of unnamed widgets, it will interact with Google Maps 5.0, capable of 3D interaction, interface with Google Talk with both video and voice, and access a 3 million eBook collection – also Google’s, I presume.
What really matters though is the combo of Android 3.0 and 4G capability using T-mobile’s network.
