T-Mobile starts taking LG G-Slate sign-ups
T-Mobile started off the week with a teaser page for its upcoming LG G-Slate tablet. The carrier is using the page to take sign-ups for interest and doesn't yet give clues of the ship date. Officially, it didn't provide more information than that it would run Android 3.0 with the "latest Google mobile innovations" and support the carrier's HSPA+ network.
The slate might be called the Optimus Pad outside of the US. If so, it should have NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chip and support both front and back cameras. A launch is informally expected sometime in the early spring. LG has already passed through the FCC and is waiting mostly on final launch plans.
