LG’s first Android tablet has been officially announced at CES 2011: it’s called LG G-Slate and will be available via T-Mobile USA sometime later this year.
A T-Mobile spokesman said that T-Mobile had not released pictures of the tablet, and would not reveal it publicly until an event on Thursday morning, so today. “The Honeycomb user experience improves on Android favorites such as widgets, multi-tasking, browsing, notifications and customization. It will also feature the latest Google Mobile innovations including Google Maps 5.0 with 3D interaction, collection of more than 3 million eBooks and Google Talk with video and voice chat,” the companies said.
At this point, Honeycomb is assumed to be called Android 3.0, although Google has not formally stated that the OS will run on its smartphones as well. Enspert, a Korean manufacturer, has already predicted that Honeycomb will require a powerful processor.
