Default T-Mobile Claims G-Slate is much faster than the iPad 2 and Xoom

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"T-Mobile is ready to re-position the T-Mobile G-Slate as one of the best tablets on the market given its recent price drop. According to this internal document T-Mobile is claiming that they have received &ldquo;legal approval&rdquo; to &ldquo;definitively&rdquo; state that the G-Slate is more than &ldquo;2x faster than the iPad2 on AT&amp;T and Verizon, and over 3x faster than the Motorola Xoom.&rdquo;"</em></p><p><img src="" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>T-Mobile is referring to carrier data speeds here.&nbsp; Marketing the LG Slate based on it's "4G" connectivity is a questionable move because the G-Slate can only do 14.4Mbps, not the full 42Mpbs that T-Mobile's 4G network is capable of.&nbsp; Also, they're comparing to a 3G Xoom which will get upgraded to LTE at some point.&nbsp; I think it would be a better idea to market the G-Slate based on it's price and features.&nbsp; To me, a $400 tablet with an 8.9" 1280x768 3D display, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage built in, 5MP rear cameras for 3D, a front 2MP camera, and 1080P 2D recording with Honeycomb all for $400 on contract sounds like a great deal to me!</p><p>What are your thoughts?&nbsp; Do any of you have the G-Slate?&nbsp; Does the carrier network connectivity speed make that much of a difference to you on a tablet?</p>
