Google Releasing Nexus Tablet?

There’s been a rumor floating around of Google’s latest release: The Nexus Tablet. The device would be sporting Android 3.0 Honeycomb as well as a hefty list of required specifications by Google. No official specifications have been announced, but luckily the tablet has a projected release date at the end of 2011; so we will hopefully hear more about the device soon. PCMAG did an article talking about the various tablets offered today, and believes that the best idea is to wait for the release of the Nexus tablet (considering the Nexus line’s prompt updates). What do you think?

LG G2x Sports Dual-Core Tegra 2, Froyo and 4G


LG’s serving up quite a bit here at CTIA, and the LG G2x surely wouldn’t miss out on all the action here on the show floor. This bad boy is part of the elite Tegra 2 family and runs Android 2.2 (Froyo) on a brilliant 4.0″ HD capacitive touchscreen, featuring with HSPA+ capability, 1GHz Dual-Core Processor, 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, 1080p HD video recording and playback, and a HDMI output and DLNA support to wrap it all up. The LG G2x will launch on the T-Mobile network this Spring and is estimated to cost around $150 with a 2-year contract.

Hands on with LG’s G-Slate at CTIA 2011

You know we couldn’t hit up CTIA without swinging by LG’s booth and getting up close and personal with the highly anticipated G-Slate.

This tablet is exactly as it looks in videos and images across the web: Badass. Infused with the latest and greatest Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), optimized for its 8.9-inch High Definition touchscreen, the LG G-Slate features the awesome performance that you’d expect from an NVIDIA 1Ghz (Dual-Core) Tegra 2 Tablet with 4G speeds to give it that extra sweetness in speed.

A brief run-through on specs:

  • Rear 5.0-megapixel camera with LED Flash
  • 1080p HD and 720p HD 3D Video Recording and Playback
  • Front 2.0-megapixel camera
  • Google Maps 5.0 with 3D Interaction
  • 32GB of built-in memory
  • 4G Capable
  • T-Mobile GSM

There’s no question that the most impressive aspect of LG’s G-Slate is its capability of recording and playing back in 1080p/720p 3D. I picked up the G-Slate and recorded a short clip of the booth with all the people nearby, and then went back in and played it back with the provided 3D glasses. (Which by the way were as close to Revenge of the Nerds as you could get)

It was pretty astonishing how well the 3D looked from actual recorded video. The rep did state that the G-Slate will come with a pair of 3D glasses, but the bad news is the ones you see in this picture are exactly what you can expect. Not too cool, right? I didn’t think so either. The rep reassured me that there would be a few more sleek options as far as the glasses went that a customer could choose from for a price of around $15-$30.

I’m a true fan of Motorola’s XOOM tablet, but I firmly believe that the LG G-Slate is going to give the XOOM a run for its money when it finally launches on April 20th.

LG Revolution Appears at FCC; Launch Date Still Unknown

While we’re still patiently waiting for the LG Revolution to launch, word that the device has just passed the FCC has spread across the interwebz. This 4G, 1GHz single-core Android device on Verizon just might be the first Android with Netflix support. Although the LG Revolution has crossed the borders of the FCC, that doesn’t mean that the device will launch in the next few weeks. As a matter of fact, it could still be months from now until we hear official word that the Revolution is hitting stores.

Don’t you just love playing the guessing game?

New Commercial for LG Optimus Pad Meets Transformers Action

If I wasn’t so partial to Android, I’d almost feel bad for Apple. The hits just keep on coming to their end of the tablet world, and this new commercial featuring the LG G-Slate, otherwise known as the Optimus Pad demonstrates just how powerful a real tablet is ending on a crushing note for Apple. This is a really cool advertisement for the tablet since it incorporates a mix of Transformers and the tablet together, so do yourself a favor and check it out!

VoLTE to be introduced on the LG Revolution

With 4G LTE coming up with the release of the HTC Thunderbolt and LG Revolution which are both opening the door to voice-over-data on Verizon. The kicker is that the Thunderbolt will only be able to have voice-over-data on 3G. The Revolution with be the first 4G LTE device that will be able to have voice-over-LTE. This is a big step for Verizon to welcome voice-over-data that they’ve been lacking for quite some time.

LG G-Slate Appears on 3D Editing YouTube Video; Maybe a Sign of 3D Video Capture?

The LG G-Slate has shown up on yet another YouTube video, only this time the main subject of the video was in regards to 3D video editing. Now, before clicking play on the clip above, do yourself a favor and just skip straight to 3:37 to avoid the nonsense before the G-Slate’s appearance. It’s very short and sweet, and seems almost as if the guy doesn’t even know what greatness he holds in his hand. As you can see though, the G-Slate does in fact have 2 camera’s on the back, which could possibly indicate that it records 3D video.

Maybe a long shot, but hey… is it just a coincidence that the whole video is about 3D editing to begin with?

LG Hints at New Optimus Model; Possibly 3D?

There’s talks of a new Android powered LG Optimus model which is said to take us “Into the New Dimension” which could really only mean one thing. It’s going to be a 3D handset. Confirmed? No. But really, what else could LG have up their sleeve here? CES’s biggest bang this year was definitely the evolution of new 3D technology, so if LG plans to incorporate a glasses-free smartphone that looks crisp, then we have no objections. It’s when you mention the requirement for the glasses is when we’ll get finicky about getting our hands on one. The new Optimus device is scheduled to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress during the 2nd week of February, so until then folks…
