gslate g2x
Last Updated: April 20th, 2011

Remember that onslaught of dual-core smartphones and Honeycomb-running tablets we have been anticipating for a while now? It has already begun - and it is only going to keep on growing. The latest rumored release is for the LG G-Slate and G2X, which, according to TmoNews, are both set to launch at T-Mobile stores on April 20.

The dual-core G-Slate (also known as Optimus Pad) will be, along with the upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1, the first Honeycomb-running rivals to give the Motorola XOOM a run for its money. LG's 8.9" tab will be the first to incorporate 3D technology, and is rumored to be priced at $699 (let's just hope that's off-contract). The G2x, also known as the Optimus 2X, will be a dual-core, Tegra 2 running phone that will offer an AOSP build of Froyo (supposedly followed by a Gingerbread update soon after launch). It has a 480 x 800 display and can record 1080p HD video (and play it back as well). The G2x has been available in South Korea since January. Both devices will run on T-Mobile's HSPA+ "4G" network at launch.

We have been watching LG's dual-core Android offerings for a while now. With the big date approaching and with Verizon now sporting the Thunderbolt and the XOOM on its faster LTE network (well, the XOOM will soon be LTE-friendly), do T-Mobile's offerings still do anything for you? We would love to hear in the comments.

Will's typical, run-of-the-mill story is that of 'classically-trained actor turned Android smartphone and tablet writer.' If you catch him quoting Shakespeare, it's not because he misses it, but because he desperately wants his Masters in drama to count towards something.
