T-Mobile G-Slate Hands-on Pictures and Videos

Looks like it is raining 3D mobiles and tablets at the CTIA 2011. After the HTC EVO 3D, one of the other 3D devices launched at CTIA 2011 is the LG G-Slate, which is a 8.9" HD screen tablet with a NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual-Core processor.

T-Mobile LG G-Slate

The LG Slate is 4G ready and will be launched on the T-Mobile network. It is built to view and record 3D videos with the help of two 5MP cameras at the back. It also has a 2MP camera in the front for video chatting. The device will come pre-loaded with 32GB Internal memory and will start at $529.99.

I had a hands-on demo of the device and thought it wasn’t as light as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 device, it did have a good feel to it. The tablet is loaded with the Honeycomb OS and will have access to 150,000 apps in the Market.

Though the LG G-Slate has a feel good factor to it, I didn’t see any good selling points other than watching 3D videos and capturing 3D videos and pictures.

Take a look at some hands-on pictures of the T-Mobile G-Slate and hands-on videos after the jump.

Sony Xperia Play, the PlayStation phone from Sony will be out shortly. It brings together a phone and a gaming device and clubs them into a single device.

I had a chance to play around with the Xperia Play at CTIA 2011 and it was definitely worth all the hype. The gaming is smooth and the controls are very similar to a controller for a game console.

I was able to play a few games including Asphalt 6, Sims 3 and Madden NFL and the experience was really good. The Xperia Play will come out with 5 full games pre-loaded for free and have about 50 game titles for sale at launch.

If you are looking to get a complete gaming experience on a phone, the Xperia Play is the phone to buy. Take a look at some pictures and a hands-on video of Xperia Play after the break.

Blackberry Playbook Hands-on Videos

The ; a 7 inch tablet from RIM will be out soon. The tablet was featured at the CTIA 2011 and I got a good chance to play around with the tablet.

Blackberry PlayBook

I must say that I was pretty impressed with the tablet and definitely look forward to it’s release next week. The interface is fluid and smooth. I addition to that, the tablet is a multi-tasking powerhouse with live widgets that will continue to play in the back while you launch other applications.

For example, if you are playing a video and switch to another app, you can still view a live feed of it in the apps panel. The same goes for games, emails, and practically every app.
