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.

Last Updated: April 20th, 2011

As expected, the LG Optimus 2X is finally available in the States courtesy of T-Mobile, who is dubbing it the T-Mobile G2x. At $250 less a $50 mail-in-rebate, the phone is largely in-line with the pricing for other flagship devices, and with all that horsepower inside, seems fairly reasonable.

A quick rundown of the specs:

  • 1 GHz dual core Tegra 2 processor
  • 4-inch display
  • Android 2.2 with plans to upgrade to Android 2.3
  • 8 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
  • HSPA+ (T-Mobile 4G)
  • HDMI
  • 1080p video playback
  • 1,500 mAh battery
  • microSD card slot

You may remember that prior reviews found the hardware to be excellent but found some shortcomings in the software; hopefully LG and T-Mobile have managed to make some improvements on that front in the past two months.

2 of T-Mobile's most exciting devices that are arriving this month, the dual-core LG G2x and the Samsung Sidekick 4G, have just gone live on Wirefly's pre-order site. Wirefly, one of the largest online mobile retailers, is sweetening the deal on the G2x by $50 compared to MSRP and on the Sidekick 4G (pick black or pink) by $20.

Both devices come with free activation for the pre-order period and, of course, ship for free as well.

AT&T has kind of introduced two new LG Android powered smartphones into its lineup, set to appear on April 17th - the LG Thrive and LG Phoenix. I say "kind of" because, well, they're the same phone. The Thrive is a prepaid variant, while the Phoenix is a contract-only device.

They're not really anything to brag about, but here are the specs:

  • 600MHz processor
  • 3.2 Inch screen
  • 160MB of user memory, 2GB SD card
  • 3.2MP Camera
  • Android 2.2

I guess it's not too bad when you consider the off contract price of $180 for the Thrive (okay, yes it is.

It looks like it's Android season in Alltel country, because four new handsets have just dropped on the regional provider's network. As of right now, Alltel customers can choose between the Motorola Milestone X - most of us know this one as the Droid X, the LG Axis - a low-end phone with a full slide-out QWERTY, the Samsung Gem - a tiny Froyo starter phone, and the HTC Merge - a mid-range Froyo device with a slide-out QWERTY.

Thanks to Radio Shack, it's no surprise that the Sidekick 4G is hitting the sales floor on April 20th for $99, but T-Mobile has finally made an official announcement via its Twitter page. In the interest of consolidation, it was also announced that the LG G2x would be available in-store for $199 after a $50 mail in rebate, but If you just can't wait to get your hands it, you'll be able to grab it online starting April 15th.

If there is one question that I get asked nearly everyday, it’s “When is [insert device here] coming out?” Fortunately, that question is now a little bit easier to answer because our friends over at Phandroid have gotten wind of what’s coming down the pike for Verizon this Spring and, if this leak is legitimate, it’s going to be Android-filled. Here is a breakdown of what to expect:

  • April 7, 2011 – Casio Commando, Samsung [DROID] Charge
  • April 14, 2011 – Sony Xperia Play
  • April 28, 2011 – HTC Incredible 2
  • May 5, 2011 – LG Revolution
  • Later in May – Motorola Droid Bionic, Motorola Droid X2, Samsung Galaxy 2 (is this what they're calling the S2?)

It is noted that the Bionic, the Droid X2, and the Galaxy 2 are all going to be 4G devices, with the Incredible 2 simply tagged “Global.”

From the looks of things, this year's "Summer of Droid" will arrive to Verizon early.

The new G2x dual-core phone with stock Google experience is not the only device getting some attention today in a slew of T-Mobile press releases - both the G-Slate 3D tablet made by LG and the Sidekick 4G made by Samsung finally got pricing information.

First up, the 8.9" G-Slate tablet running Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" will cost $529.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate (ugh). Don't get too excited though - this price is for a 2-year contract, in addition to a voice line (hmm?

While AT&T and Verizon both announced dual-core devices at CES (Atrix 4G and Droid Bionic, respectively), T-Mobile and Sprint have been quiet about their offerings. It was only through accidental leaks that we found out about the LG Optimus 2X, rebranded as T-Mobile G2x, coming to T-Mobile and the EVO 3D coming to Sprint.

Now, after being spotted at CTIA, the G2x really had nowhere else to hide, so T-Mobile decided to finally officially unveil it to the public.

While Cricket may not be the first (or second... or third...) US carrier you would normally consider signing up with, they have a deal on a variant of the LG Optimus One that certainly caught our attention. The LG Optimus C (we are guessing that C is for Cricket) is being sold off-contract for a mere $130 (after a $20 web discount and $50 mail-in rebate).

So while it won't exactly replace your Thunderbolt or Atrix, the solid and affordable smartphone from LG can be bought without a contract for less than most high-end phones sell on-contract.
