What You Need To Know

  • The G-Slate looks like the iPad from the front.
  • The tablet is smaller but definitely heavier.
  • We wish the G-Slate was a little lighter but otherwise, the design is nice.
  • The 9" screen is sharp and bright.
  • One thing to note is that there are slots for micro USB and HDMI but there's a proprietary charging hole. This means you can charge it via USB but it will take a day to fully charge that way, and means there's an extra cord to carry.
  • The G-Slate interface is a standard Android Honeycomb, which is the version specifically made for tablets.
  • It looks and acts just like the Motorola Xoom tablet, which means web browsing is as good as any Android tablet and this one has Flash support.
  • The G-Slate has the same dual core 1 GHz Tegra 2 processor, making it pretty fast.
  • The Tegra 2 is now a requirement for many of the newest apps in the Android Market.
  • It's nice to buy a tablet and not have to worry about whether or not it can run something.
  • We loaded up the G-Slate with processor intensive games like Cordy, which the tablet ran well with only a couple of stutters.
  • The big selling point for the G-Slate is the 4G wireless and the 3D camera.
  • The 4G service from T-Mobile is very fast and sometimes better than wi-fi, but it's not free.
  • The 3D video camera is a neat trick: the videos can be recorded and viewed with cheap red and blue 3D glasses.
  • You can also hook the tablet up to a 3D television and watch home movies in 3D with expensive shutter glasses.
  • The 3D video was far better than we expected.


  • $530 with a contract.
  • $750 without a contract.
