CES 2011: Motorola and LG Android 3.0 4G Tablets Announced

Forget about smartphones the main gadget seems to be the tablet these days, since the release of the Apple iPad, the tablet has become big business in the mobile space with just about everyone pushing out a tablet of their own.

And according to an article over on Venture Beat by Devindra Hardawar, CES 2011 has felt like nothing but tablets so far with Motorola and LG joining in the tablet furore by announcing their own mobile tablets, the Motorola Xoom and the LG T-Mobile G-Slate.

The Motorola Xoom we already know is a 10.1 inch tab that is destined for Verizon’s 4G LTE network and features a 1GHz dual-core processor, 5 megapixel camera and 2 megapixel front facing camera, 1080p HD playback with HDMI out, runs Android 3.0 OS and will apparently launch in Q1 but as yet no word on any pricing.

According to an article over on Enagdget, not to be outdone in the tablet stakes at CES 2011, LG announced the T-Mobile G-Slate which also happens to run Android 3.0 but other than that there’s not a great deal of detail known about the device other than the LG T-Mobile G-Slate should be available “in coming months,” but more should be revealed during T-Mobile’s press conference at CES 2011 later.
