Motorola XOOM vs LG Optimus Tab (T-Mobile G-Slate) vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Motorola XOOM vs LG Optimus Tab (T-Mobile G-Slate) vs Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Twitter: twitter.com Facebook: www.facebook.com 2nd Channel: www.youtube.com In this comparison I take a look at the first three Android 3.0 tablets to determine which is going to be the best Honeycomb tablet. The Motorola XOOM looks to be the first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet to launch and it looks quite good. It will be a Google Experience device meaning no custom firmware which should help the tablet get updates much more quickly. You’ll find 1 GHz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 10.1 inch display with a resolution of 1280×800 and support for Verizon 3G now that can be upgraded to Verizon 4G LTE later in the year. Next up is the LG Optimus Tab which will be known as the T-Mobile G-Slate in the United States. The Optimus Tab also runs a stock version of Android 3.0 however it has a smaller 8.9 inch display that supports 3D, albeit with glasses. It also runs the Tegra 2 processor however it has HDMI out along with two 5 megapixel rear facing cameras with allows you to record up to 1080p HD 3D video. Lastly we have the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the update to the first major Android tablet the original Galaxy Tab. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is very similar to the Motorola XOOM with a 10.1 inch 1280×800 display, Tegra 2 CPU and of course Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It lacks a USB port, MicroSD card slot and HDMI however which makes it a bit of a tougher sell.

How would you change T-Mobile’s G-Slate?

Splurged on a T-Mobile G-Slate, did you? Here’s your opportunity to voice your opinion to LG (and anyone else who’ll listen). Sporting an unorthodox aspect ratio and an affinity for a carrier that may not exist on its own by this time next year, it’s certainly one of the odder slate options on the market. Combine that with the inability to buy a WiFi-only model, and you’ve got yourself firmly into niche territory. That said, we’re confident that LG moved quite a few of these, and chances are that some of those buyers are reading these words right now. If that’s you, we’re interested to hear how you’d do things differently the next go ’round. Are you a fan of the form factor? Pining for a matte panel? Would you have preferred a WWAN-less variant? Is the UI everything you’d hoped for… and more? Go on and drop your thoughts in comments below — mama always encouraged the art of getting things off your chest.

Fly Or Die: LiveScribe Connect And The T-Mobile G-Slate

Earlier this week we gave you a little sneak peek at the new Livescribe Connect service but we also looked a bit more closely at the T-Mobile G-Slate, Big Fuchsia’s wild 3D tablet. Erick was generally nonplussed with both products but this is the year of the Android tablet and this is one of the most unique devices we’ve seen this year.

We ran a review of the G-Slate a few weeks ago and talked about the Connect announcement on Monday.

T-Mobile G-Slate and Sidekick 4G now on sale, Android overload imminent

That delectable G-Slate we just reviewed is today shaking off the cobwebs from its long journey westward and is making itself available for purchase directly through T-Mobile. The price is still a daunting $ 530 with a two-year contract and there’s a suggested retail price of $ 750, though we’re not seeing any option to obtain it that way. Then again, why would you want to, it’s a 4G tablet designed to ride T-Mobile’s HSPA+ airwaves anyhow. In more budget-conscious news, the Sidekick 4G is also making its retail debut today, at $ 99 on contract, bringing all the goods of a Galaxy S handset, combined with a QWERTY slider keyboard and a tricked-out Android UI. Hit the links to learn more about both, though don’t blame us if you end up doing damage to your bank balance in the process.

G-Slate Officially Hitting Tomorrow For $530 On Contract


We’ve heard it a few times before, but now it’s official: the T-Mobile G-Slate, also known as the Optimus Pad, will be hitting the US tomorrow, April 20th, for $ 529.99 with a 2-year contract. If you want one contract, free, it’ll set you back $ 750 — more than the equivalent iPad, but remember, this one has 3D!

Although the usual pricing bickering will follow, the main problem isn’t getting your money’s worth ($ 750 is competitive, if not enticing) but that there’s no lower-spec option with less space, no 3D, no 3G, or what have you. I mean, there are of alternatives, but these initial Honeycomb tablets seem to be shooting a little high.

We’ll have our review up really soon, though, so keep an eye on the front page and we’ll let you know whether it’s worth your hard-earned dollars.

Oh, and T-Mo reminds you that if you sign up for info before tomorrow, you can get a little discount.

T-Mobile G-Slate review

The tablet wars are building, petty disputes that will soon lead to bloodshed. Products will be launched into battle only to be gunned down straight out of their boxes, crying for their fabricators as bigger, faster, better slates step over the stricken chassis of their predecessors, running on to their own brief bits of glory. At a high level it’s obviously Android vs. Apple vs. The Rest, but battle lines are forming as we consumers, caught in the middle, try to decide just what the right size is for a tablet.

Right now two camps seem to be getting the most supporters: seven-inchers, like the Streak 7 and BlackBerry PlayBook, and 10-inchers, like the Motorola Xoom and the Apple iPad. But, sometimes weapon systems need to be a little more specialized. Sometimes the templates don’t fit, and the $ 530 (after rebate, on-contract) T-Mobile G-Slate by LG isn’t fitting into those categories, slotting somewhere in between with its 8.9-inch display backed with Tegra 2 graphics, 4G HSPA+ wireless, and all the oomph you want in a modern Android device. It’s a little smaller and little lighter than the 10-inchers, bigger and meatier than the sevens and, by cutting down the middle, it hits almost all the right marks.

T-Mobile G-Slate Gets Early Availability On eBay

If you get on T-Mobile’s site to try and order a G-Slate, you’ll end up staring at a big coming soon sign. But on eBay it’s a different story. The 8.9-inch Honeycomb tablet isn’t expected to launch for another two weeks but one eBay user is claiming the G-Slate is on hand and ready to ship.

Starting bid is currently at $ 800, but if you have to have it, buy it now is set at $ 1200. Is it worth it? Well, when it does come out it’s going to cost $ 529 with a 2-year contract and after mail-in rebate. Suddenly $ 800 doesn’t look too bad to be contract-free.
