Looks like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and perhaps even the upcoming tablets like HP TouchPad or the Toshiba Thrive are giving a hard time to T-Mobile’s LG G-Slate ( aka LG Optimus Pad ). Although the G-Slate has only been released roughly two months ago looks like the guys over at T-Mobile are thinking that the tablet is falling behind and in order to keep things interesting they’ve decided to do a price-cut on the G-Slate.
That being said you are now able to get your very own LG G-Slate with a two-year contract with T-Mobile for only $399.99 with a $100 instant discount and a $200 mail rebate. That’s $300 less than the initial price of $699.99.
I’d say that the offer is pretty good for the G-Slate and even if lately the Samsung Galaxy tab 10.1 has been under the spotlight most of the time, it doesn’t mean that the G-Slate should be forgotten that easily. It was one of the first tablets to be released with Honeycomb out of the box and its specs and features are not bad. Let’s check them out.
- Dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU @ 1 GHz
- 1024 MB of RAM DDR2
- 32 GB built-in internal memory
- Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS
- 8.9 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 768
- Dual 5 megapixels rear-facing camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording and 3D Capture
- 2 megapixels front facing camera
- 4G connectivity
- HDMI, DLNA, microUSB,
As you can see, overall the LG G-Slate is a solid tablet with great specs and features. At the price of $399.99 I’d say that this is not a bad deal at all so if you’re thinking about buying a tablet that can somewhat compete with the Samsung Galaxy Tab but you don’t want to spend that much money then the LG G-Slate is your best choice at this point.
Feel free to check out more details about the LG G-Slate and let us know if you think that it could be the right choice for you if you would want to buy a tablet. Would you spend $399 on the 4G LG G-slate or $499 on the 16 GB Wi-Fi Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, or more for the other better versions of the Galaxy Tab.
