T-Mobile 3D Tablet On Its Way

By Cindy Waxer February 02, 2011

With the 3D craze in full effect, it was bound to happen eventually: a tablet computer that can shoot 3D videos.

This spring, T-Mobile USA is all set to unveil its G-Slate tablet from LG Electronics. The device will feature a high-definition 8.9-inch, 3D-capable multi-touch display and will allow users to record 3D and full HD video. This is the first tablet in T-Mobile’s G-series of devices with Honeycomb software, a version of Google, Inc.’s Android operating system specifically designed for tablet computers.

The G-Slate is also among the first tablets to feature 3D capabilities including built-in support for 3D graphics, enabling consumers to capture and share their own 3D videos and experience 3D HD content right on the device with the aid of 3D glasses.

“The G-Slate represents the next chapter in T-Mobile’s rich history of Android innovation,” said Brad Duea, senior vice president, marketing, T-Mobile USA, in a press release. “Tablets enable users to take with them the rich Web and entertainment experiences they have at home, and this will radically shift the way people interact with and consume content while mobile. The G-Slate delivers a powerful combination of premium mobile HD entertainment and T-Mobile’s lightning-fast 4G mobile broadband network.”

The G-Slate features a rear-facing stereoscopic video recorder with 1080p for HD video capture and a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash. With its front-facing camera, users can video chat with friends and family over T-Mobile’s network or WiFi with Google Talk.

Last year, TechZone360.com reported that Google's Android OS was officially the second most popular operating system in the world, according to a recent report by the research firm Gartner.

Although the news was far from unexpected, most analysts did not anticipate that Android would have such a dominant third quarter. Google's mobile platform now accounts for a whopping 25.5 percent of the worldwide smartphone market, up from only 3.5 percent in the same quarter last year.
