T-Mobile Releases New Info On LG G-Slate and Samsung Galaxy S 4G
Come on, you really didn’t think T-Mobile would be silent while AT&T announces more details on their first 4G phone and Verizon prepares to release the iPhone? And wow did T-Mobile have a lot to say today, announcing a whole bunch of new info on their upcoming LG G-Slate 4G tablet AND more info on an all new Samsung Galaxy S 4G phone (a successor to the Samsung Vibrant). Read on for all the info.
Remember those amazing, almost too good to be true rumors of this coming with a 3D screen and 3D cameras? Yeah, both are true with the G-Slate being able to both allow you view all that Android 3.0 Honeycomb goodness in 3D (which unfortunately will need you to wear glasses for. What type of glasses– the expensive ones that are with 3D TVs, called active, or the cheaper ones you find in movie theaters, called passive, remains to be seen) on the G-Slate 8.9 inch HD screen. And the back 5 megapixel camera on this tablet will also be able to record both pix and videos in 3D and full 1080p HD which you can also view on 3D TVs.

Other specs on this beast include that 1 GHZ dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor (for awesome speed), T-Mobile 4G, front 2 megapixel camera for video chatting on Google Talk (either on T-Mobile 4G or WiFi), and 32 GB of built-in storage.
Pricing and release date weren’t announced, but we can expect this to come sometime “this spring.”
Samsung Galaxy S 4G
Love the Samsung Vibrant but wish it had a front camera and 4G? Then this is the new phone for you. Not only did T-Mobile announce more info on the above LG G-Slate, but they also shared more info and pix on their newest and most powerful 4G phone, the Galaxy S 4G.
T-Mobile’s calling this a mobile HD TV in your pocket, and with everything that’s in here, we can definitely see that. With specs like a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen (read: amazing screen), access to T-Mobile latest and fastest 4G speeds (up to a blazing 21 Mbps— really, really fast internet that should be rolled out all across T-Mobile’s network as the year goes on. This is the first T-Mobile phone capable of this), front camera with T-Mobile Video Chat powered by Qik, 5 megapixel back camera, 1 GHZ Samsung Hummingbird processor (like the Vibrant and other Galaxy S phones. Basically, everything on here should run really fast), Android 2.2 and 16 GB of built-in storage on an included microSD card you’ve got incredible power.
But that’s not all here. Sure Verizon, AT&T and Sprint have had mobile TV apps for a while now, but it’s never to late if T-Mobile wants to join the fun. With all this new 4G speeds mobile TV watching should look incredibly awesome and clear, and T-Mobile looks to deliver just that on here as well with their announcement of their new mobile TV app, T-Mobile TV. T-Mobile TV, like all the other carriers TV apps, offers access to live and on-demand HD video, though here you also get some free programming from select stations like ABC News NOW, FOX Sports, PBS Kids and Azteca America (no word yet on what other channels will be offered and what they’ll cost). Oh, and just like the Vibrant launched with a free version of Avatar, the Galaxy S 4G plans to launch with an equally awesome movie included on the phone– Inception.
Price and an exact release date are still not yet announced, but we expect both to come out pretty soon as T-Mobile has said it plans to release the Galaxy S 4G sometime this month.

So there you have it T-Mobile users, some awesome new devices to look forward to real soon. And if you’re looking for a new T-Mobile 4G phone this month, what will it be– HTC G2, myTouch 4G or will you instead wait for this beast? Let us know in the comments.
