The LG G-Slate is hitting T-Mobile this spring for $529 (after a mail-in rebate). We finally spent some hands-on time with this Android 3.0 slate, and it certainly brings some unique features to the table. This 8.9-inch device captures 3D video with its two rear-facing 5-MP cameras and lets you enjoy 3D content on its 1280 x 800 screen. Unfortunately, you need glasses to view 3D on the display, and the effect wasn't very compelling when we donned a pair of specs."</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/DSa2keqwXjc&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/DSa2keqwXjc&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /></object></p><p>It looks like more and more Honeycomb tablets are arriving, and LG's offering looks good, at 8.9-inches and $529 after rebate. Not many details were available, but we should see them arriving in late spring 2011. With AT&amp;T and T-Mobile making their "merger" announcement, I wonder about the future of any T-Mobile products. Have they osborned their WAN hardware?</p>
