LG G-Slate video proves 3D cam and Google blessing
LG's G-Slate was proven to have a 3D camera late this weekend with a brief teaser video (below) from Internet personality MysteryGuitarMan. While talking about 3D, he briefly showed towards the end of the clip that he has the tablet and that it has two back cameras that would be needed for stereoscopic 3D photos and movies. Like an earlier Korean music video, he didn't confirm that there was a glasses-free 3D display, though one is suspected.
The design was also cosmetically very different and suggested that it had either come further in development or would be treated differently across different countries. LG's device still has the metallic "with Google" strip as the Revolution phone, confirming that it will have Google's blessing for official Android apps and the Market. Also in view is a flash, albeit only on one of the cameras.
The 8.9-inch tablet has few official details but should be one of the few early Android 3.0 tablets with an 8.9-inch, 720p-capable display and an NVIDIA Tegra 2 underneath. The dual-core chip would tie into the HDMI port and give it support for 1080p video output.
LG will ship the G-Slate worldwide, but it could arrive in the US first and should sell through T-Mobile in late March.
