The G-Slate from LG opens up an entirely new chapter in the tablet segment in that it is the first tablet PC in the world that comes with inherent 3D capabilities. Not only is the tablet capable of capturing videos in 3D format through its stereoscopic 3D camera, it will also be able to render 3D display via its 8.9 inch screen. The only rider though is that one will have to wear special 3D glasses to experience the 3D effect. LG had also stated the glasses won’t be part of the standard package, which means G-Slate buyers will have to shell out extra cash to buy these glasses.
However, going for a T-Mobile version of the tablet makes sense under the circumstances in that the carrier has announced they would be making available the special glasses free of cost. A battery charger along with a USB cable will also be part of the free stuff. However, the only problem here, if at all it is one is that that the glasses are of the classic red and blue color type and might not help provide some impetus to the style quotient.
However, there still is no news of what the tablet will cost without contract though we know the tablet costs $529.99 after agreeing to a two year contract.
