Though it was technically announced back at CES, T-Mobile just barely talked about the LG G-Slate there, spending more time chatting up Dell's Streak 7 and letting Motorola's Xoom get virtually all of the Honeycomb attention. Well, that's changed today with a handful of official new details: turns out the G-Slate features a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2
processor, 32GB of internal storage, both a gyroscope and
accelerometer, and -- this is key -- stereoscopic rear-facing video
cameras capable of 1080p 3D capture, one of which doubles as a 5
megapixel still camera with LED flash. There's also a third 2 megapixel
camera up front for video chat over T-Mobile's HSPA+ network or WiFi.
Going back to that 3D business for a moment, you'll need glasses (it's
unclear if they're active or passive) to enjoy recorded or downloaded 3D
content on the G-Slate's 8.9-inch display -- but you'll also be able to
output 1080p video over HDMI to the external display of your choice.
Pricing is still an open question, but the companies are now comfortable
enough to say that we can expect it "this spring," so go ahead and
start thinking about all the blooming springtime plant life you'll be
filming in three glorious dimensions. Follow the break for the full
Update: While T-Mobile hedges its bets with a "spring" launch, LG says that it'll be hitting US soil in March as one of the first Honeycomb tablets. The honor of being first will almost certainly go to the Motorola Xoom -- Google's in-house "dogfooding" tablet.
