It's finally here!  Aaron reviews the T-Mobile G-Slate, the US version of the LG Optimus Pad and the first device to launch with 3D recording capabilities.  It offers a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 8.9-inch display, stereoscopic 5-megapixel cameras for shooting 3D content, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and Android 3.0 (Honeycomb).  The G-Slate can record HD video in 1080p, and 3D video in 720p.

As if that wasn't enough, it's the first product to run on the carrier's 42 Mbps HSPA+ network, which is currently live in Orlando, Las Vegas, and New York City.  The T-Mobile G-Slate will be available on April 20th for $529.99.  Is it the the best tablet out there, or does it fall short of the others?  Part 1 of 2.

Don Kenyon The slate is something I might just look into
Kevin Belnap no need for tablets now!! we have big smartphones already
David Reyes I like it, but like the Xoom, too expensive comepared 2 the competition aka ipad 2
Mark Stephens I got an email from tmobile since I pre registered for the Gslate stating not to buy online yet. And I will receive an email in 48 hours with a discount for it and it'll be worth the wait. I guess we'll see how much more they'll knock off it
Anh-Tuan Le Why, when you can have the Viewsonic G Tablet for $280?
Corey Walker Not for that price!
Dre Ill Too expensive
Ankit Maloney Tablet makers should understand that plastic construction is NOT acceptable for a product that costs $500 - $700. Xoom, here I come.
Austin Jae Yes but it's too expensive.
Brendon Bowers Being a user of both tabs the Gslate dominates the ipad flatout, it can do more. And its the cheapest tablet you can get out of the xoom and ipads not to mention you don't have to pay extra for wifi and the multiple ways to record in 3d makes that feature very usable!!
Amanda Sutton Messer No. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Patrick Tung Nah, I rather have the iPad 2. Like their iPod's, iPhone's and now their iPad's, the tablet market will be first dominanted by Apple.
Vinny Slavin Yes, but the price does not.
Fan OfDreaming Not really But I think that's only cuz I'm not looking 4 a tablet @ the moment
Gabriel Sotomayor Too expensive, carry on
