T-Mobile reveals 3D display capabilities of LG G-Slate and Galaxy S 4G specs

Summary:Two new HSPA+ capable devices will soon be launching on T-Mobile. One is the G-Slate from LG with 8.9 inch display that supports 3D video.

Last month at CES T-Mobile and LG revealed the G-Slate Android Honeycomb tablet device and news that a Samsung Galaxy Vibrant update would be coming as the Galaxy S 4G. The Galaxy S 4G will be available sometime in February, but a release date, price, and data plans were not revealed for the LG G-Slate.

LG G-Slate

T-Mobile just revealed details on the Dell Streak 7 that really should have been skipped over. I sold my iPad and went with the Galaxy Tab due to the smaller display and more portable size and thus the LG G-Slate seems interesting to me with the 8.9 inch display. This is bigger than the Galaxy Tab and smaller than the iPad so it will be interesting to see how it fits into someone's daily routine. The display also supports 3D (with glasses), which is an interesting gimmick. The device will launch with Android 3.0, HD video with 1080p support, five megapixel camera with LED flash, front facing 2 megapixel camera, 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, and HDMI output. The G-Slate will also have 32GB of internal memory. I imagine a device with these capabilities will likely run in the $550+ range with 2-year contract.

Samsung Galaxy S 4G

The Galaxy S 4G is basically a Samsung Vibrant that is upgraded to provide support for T-Mobile's HSPA+ high speed data network. Similar to the way the Vibrant launched with the movie Avatar, the Galaxy S 4G is launching with the movie Inception pre-loaded onboard. Like the Vibrant, the Galaxy S 4G also has a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen, 1 GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, 5 megapixel camera, and support for up to 21 Mbps. I imagine we will see it launch at $199.99 with 2-year contract.

Do either of these new T-Mobile devices interest you?
