T-Mobile and LG have provided an early glimpse at their 4G tablet offering, called the G-Slate. You may notice that the video is the same from the leak earlier and from the Motorola presser. It will probably be used a lot until we see an official Honeycomb announcement.
What we know about the G-Slate is that it will indeed run Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), will be on T-Mobile's 4G network and it is being done in conjunction with Google. Other than that, not too many details have been released.
Enjoy the video after the break. The announcements just keep coming, the tough part is going to be deciding which products to buy. [Twitter]
Update: T-Mobile has made it official, and the full press release is after the break.
