LG had showcased its G-Slate tablet last month at Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas. The most attractive part of the tablet was its pair of stereoscopic rear-facing video cameras capable of capturing 1080p high definition 2D and 3D images. The cameras simulate human binocular vision and therefore have the ability to capture three-dimensional images, a process known as stereo photography.
Also, one of the rear cameras can be used as a 5 mega pixel still camera with LED flash. There is, in addition, a 2 mega pixel camera on the front for video chats.
T-Mobile said in a press statement that G-Slate will be available in the USA by March and in the meantime, the network carrier has announced G-Slate’s specs, but has made no mention of its price. Docomo Japan is also rumored to be contemplating a G-Slate launch this March.
Moon B Shin, the managing director of LG India told The mobile Indian about launching a tablet in India in November. We hope that this is the tablet he talked about, and that we see it in India soon.
The 8.9 inch touchscreen is also capable of playing 3D content which can be viewed using 3D glass. The tablet works on both 3G and Wifi, and includes an HDMI port to connect the device to an HDTV for viewing things on a big screen.
The tablet boasts a juicy spec sheet which includes Android Honeycomb operating system, a 1 GHz dual core Tegra 2 processor, 32 GB of internal storage, a gyroscope (direction sensor) and accelerometer (motion sensor), both of which work together to change the screen orientation based on how the device is held.
LG said G-Slate will be the first 3D tablet that runs the Honeycomb version of Android, which has been designed especially for tablets. The most anticipated Honeycomb tablet round the corner is Motorola’s Xoom.
