Powered by Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), LG took the route of not implementing any other user interface on top.

Along with HDMI and USB connectivity, the dots on the side of the tablet will correspond with an upcoming dock for the G-Slate.

The LG G-Slate sports an 8.9-inch display that is capable of 3D playback (glasses included in the box), especially when using the rear 3D camera.

One of the stand-out features on the G-Slate is the battery life, which is 9.2 hours of continuous HD video playback or 11.3 days on standby after a full charge.

If you can't afford the $529.99 G-Slate, perhaps you can find up one of these pillows with an image of the T-Mobile tablet imprinted on it.

Even the T-Mobile commerical girl was present at the big event (along with Dev & the Cataracs flown out from the San Francisco Bay Area). T-Mobile knows how to throw a party.
