Update: It's true - against all odds, T-Mobile has confirmed that the G-Slate will indeed be launching on April 20. Just one more day, folks!

Thanks, Ross!

Listen up, 3D fanatics - according to TmoNews, LG's multidimensional G-Slate will go on sale on April 20th.

It's not the first time we've seen this date thrown around, and it would certainly make sense given the fact that two of T-Mobile's other flagships - the G2x and the Sidekick 4G - are also launching on 4/20. However, we must express some skepticism given the fact that, well, we're two days away from the 20th, and T-Mobile has yet to issue a press release, let alone put the tablet up for pre-order.

Still, we're certainly not dismissing the possibility - TmoNews seems confident in the rumor's legitimacy (they even call it an "official" announcement), so we'll just have to wait it out and see what move Magenta ends up taking.

    GTFO....ain't no way that can happen. I mean, it's LESS than two days away. You can't make an announcement a day before the product is going on sale and expect it to SELL. Another Dell Streak 5 in the making if they pull this boneheaded move off.

    Even though if the rumor is correct, it better be below $500 or else it will be like Motorola Xoom... Everyone wants a Wifi version only and low price point. Learn from Motorola and Samsung's mistake.

    According to my sources, the 20th date is correct as well. At least that's what T-Mobile is aiming for.

    G-Slate tablet is just too expensive. I don’t know how Apple is doing it but I’m surprised to see them having the cheapest priced tablet around. I’m not saying that G-Slate is worth your money but judging from the expert’s reviews, it is a pretty decent gadget that is worth a try. Maybe we can level it somewhere near Xoom but not in the same ranks as Galaxy and iPad 2. Still, we have to give them credit as the first 4G tablet available in the market.
