T-Mobile’s Svelte Slate Excels, 3-D Feature Excepted

The G-Slate eschews expansive dimensions in favor of an 8.9-inch screen made for ease of use. We needed only one hand in portrait mode, while all of our apps were within thumb’s reach for two-handed navigation in landscape. At just 1.37 pounds and half an inch thick, the LG-built unit feels comfortable either way. But while it nails the basics, the extras need work. We tried out the 3-D camcorder, but the 1950s-era red-and-blue glasses left us nauseated.

WIRED 15:9 aspect ratio great for viewing movies. T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 4G network flies. Tabbed browsing.

TIRED Junky glasses undermine 3-D video. Beta version of Flash for Honeycomb is far too sluggish for twitch-level gaming. $530 and up with two-year contract
