The last time we spoke about the upcoming LG G-Slate and the T-Mobile G2X, also known as the LG Optimus 2X, we were telling you about rumored release dates for both devices. Now we have some official news for you, in relation to pricing and release availability.
Firstly, LG has just announced the G2X officially, which is the US version of the Optimus 2X, and it will be coming to T-Mobile before anywhere else, just like the G-Slate which we’ll get on to later. The device features a Nvidia 1Ghz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 4-inch display screen, 512MB RAM, 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.3MP front camera and 8GB of storage which is expandable via MicroSD card.
The device will run on a stock version of Android 2.2 Froyo, with an upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread already confirmed sometime after release. When can you get your hands on it at T-Mobile? Sometime this Spring according to Engadget, no word on an exact date or price yet.
As for the impressive looking G-Slate tablet, LG has just confirmed pricing for the device. It will be available for $529 USD on a two-year contract with T-Mobile, making it slightly cheaper than the Motorola Xoom which is $599 for the WiFi version, as reported from Engadget. However, that $529 price for the G-Slate also includes support for T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network, and the specs are pretty impressive too – Honeycomb, 3D Camera, dual-core Tegra 2 chip, and 1080p video recording.
Again no release date for the G-Slate though, we’ll let you know once T-Mobile and LG announce it. What are your thoughts on both sets of information? Are you interested in picking up both the G2X and G-Slate? Are you happy with the $529 price point or not?
