As you may have guessed it from my post earlier today, I'm here at CTIA 2011 with Phil and Dieter, and as there isn't much in the way of BlackBerry stuff at the show (we're all waiting for our PlayBook tablet and some new phones) I'm helping out here with some posts (apologies in advance for my android-newbness).

In this video we start off with that live at CTIA feel with an on-stage presentation by the LG Girl of the T-Mobile G-Slate. Key specs on this baby include:

  • T-Mobile HSPA+ data, plus Wifi
  • Display: 8.9-inch 3D-capable multi-touch display
  • Operating System: Android 3.0 (Honeycomb)
  • Processor: Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core
  • Rear-facing stereoscopic video recorder at 1080p
  • 5MP camera with LED flash
  • 720p video playback, 1080p output via HDMI
  • 32GB of internal memory

I pick up the G-Slate at 3m51s into the video (a little tricky with one hand on the camera). It definitely feels a tad on the heavy side, but I guess that's to be expected when you're cramming in the features, like 3D video recording. The T-Mobile G-Slate will cost $529.99 after $100 mail-in-rebate and the standard 2-year contract but also a data plan.

T-Mobile G-Slate by LG video demo and hands-on (w/ help from the LG Girl!)


This is the second time Kevin looks a woman up and down in a news video post. I routinely link my my girlfriend and little sister to this site for its information. Not cool.

If you want to be the loser that checks out women through a viewfinder, that's on you, but please don't make us unwitting accomplices by doing it in a news piece.

That's what the "booth babes" are there for. They know the nerds that care about this stuff are sex-starved, so they roll out the hotties to demo the products. You should have seen PAX last summer. It's a time-honored tradition. I doubt the girls think they got their job for their personality.

@ Morpheus: Give up your man card bro! Your girlfriend and sister looks at guys like eye candy too, so it's all in good fun.

How can you state at 4:00 in that the tablet feels weighty after just showing the back of it with a metal plate attached to it along with the a huge tether connector piece? Can you at least be fair to the LG Slate and the scenario in which you are reviewing it's weight.

The Samsung 8.9 and 10.1 only had a connector on the very bottom of the tablet attached which did not add as much weight as all of the security equipment attached to this LG Slate.
