T-Mobile Brings The Heat At CTIA- Announces 4G Packing LG G2X and Adds More Details on Sidekick 4G and LG G-Slate
While they may soon become AT&T, until that finally happens T-Mobile is still going strong, today taking the wraps off a new impressive 4G phone for its already loaded 4G lineup, the LG G2X, and finally sharing some more info on two of their very anticipated new devices: the Sidekick 4G and LG G-Slate tablet. Let’s get to it!
While it doesn’t pack the glasses free 3D screen of AT&T’s Thrill 4G, it’s still mighty impressive nonetheless. With specs like a high-res 4 inch screen (or like all new smartphone screens—your eyes will love it), 1 GHZ dual-core processor (for blazing speed when doing anything), 8 megapixel back camera with flash and HD video recording with a second front camera for video chat, and Android 2.2 preloaded with games like Need for Speed Shift HD (to really show off the phones speed and screen) it definitely is one the most powerful phone T-Mobile has ever launched.
T-Mobile says it will be available “later this Spring” (again, think like within a month or two), for a price still to be announced.
We know a lot of you are very interested in the Sidekick 4G and we’ve got good news: T-Mobile has taken the wraps off the pricing and it will be $99.99 with an unlimited data plan ($30 a month—this is perfect for those who plan to do a lot of video chatting or YouTube watching on their phone) or $149.99 with T-Mobile’s $10 250 MB plan (great for emails, updating your Facebook or quick browsing of the web but not a lot of video watching over 4G). Like the G2X this will be available later this Spring.
Like the Sidekick 4G, T-Mobile finally shared some more details their upcoming 4G, 3D, Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet—the LG G-Slate. Beyond all that hardware awesomeness, the G-Slate will also come with a whole bunch of apps to take full use of that power, including: T-Mobile TV (for live and on-demand TV including news, sports, and TV shows both live and on-demand), Need for Speed SHIFT HD (like on the G2X, this should really show off the great screen and power of the G-Slate), Zinio eReader (for downloading eBooks and magazines), and of course the full lineup of Google apps including Google Talk, Gmail and Android Market.
The G-Slate will cost $529.99 with a new 2 year contract and data plan (hey, it’s better than the $600 Verizon is charging for the Xoom) when it too launches later this Spring.
We’re gonna go walk around CTIA and go get our hands on some of these new T-Mobile beasts, so stay tuned for more info later today.
