Summary

The T-Mobile G-Slate is an Android 3.0 Honeycomb-powered tablet computer built by LG. In fact, the device is a near clone of LG's 3G-capable Optimus Pad, which I first saw at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year.

The G-Slate features a display that is smaller than its main competition, a fact that makes it lower in weight and thereby easier to hold than some. It also sports a great industrial design and can record 3D 720p HD videos with its dual-5 megapixel cameras. All of this is powered by a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor that hums along at 1GHz, making sure that even 3D games run smoothly on its high-res touchscreen display.

Apart from the continuing lack of tablet-aware Android applications, and a pretty high total price of ownership (on contract, at least), there's very little to dislike about this device. You'll find two videos of the T-Mobile G-Slate in action after the Table of Contents, below.
