LG’s T-Mobile G-Slate makes an appearance at the FCC

Itching to get your hands on a Honeycomb tablet?  We have some great news for you!  The FCC has given their stamp of approval to the LG V900 tablet.  Since the T-Mobile G-Slate is the only tablet from LG that we are currently aware of, it’s pretty safe to assume that the V900 and the G-Slate are actually the same device.   The FCC documentation also indicates that the LG V900 features support for T-Mobile’s AWS WCDMA 3G network. 

Now that the T-Mobile G-Slate has cleared the FCC, we’re hoping that LG or T-Mobile will soon share more details about the device’s hardware configuration. We were pretty impressed with what LG showed off at CES this year, so we certainly have high hopes for the T-Mobile G-Slate Android tablet. 

Note: while doing some additional research for this article, we found that Engadget and TmoNews reported that a similar tablet named the LG V909 cleared the FCC last week during CES.  It’s unclear why LG would have two different devices with support for a AWS WCDMA 3G network sent to the FCC.

    Cant wait to see what the G-Slate has to offer. Definitely needed to make it a hit is all the Tablet requirements (basically the Xoom) aka the cameras, dual core and vanilla Android etc…also some reassuring from T-mobile/LG that when new versions of Android OS come out, it wont take 6 months or never at all to get it updated like some Android phones now. Sleekness of the actual tablet is important too, so far everything except iPad, and Xoom have been brick looking.

    A small concern of mine is wondering how the G-Slate will be seen in the Android community, and what i mean by that is its been mentioned that all the Google Devs have and use the Xoom, that its kinda like THE tablet…like the Nexus phone is to Google Devs, so buying something that isnt first choice of the actual devs is…idk, on my mind a tiny bit.

      I know what you’re saying, but I’m confident that with the ‘G’ moniker, T-Mobile will keep our as closely tied to Google as possible, which effectively would give it the same recognition and synergism ad the Xoom, without the media attention. Who knows, the Xoom could have just been shown more because the G Slate wasn’t ready for prime time.

        The Tmo site makes it sound like it will be similar to the G2; raw Android UI and a bunch of uninstallable google crapware. I’m using a G2, and the crapware isn’t that much of a problem, nor does it boot itself, other than Google Finance. That one I wish I could get rid of.

    Well i guess with a WIFI only version it doesn’t matter what company your cell is on…people buy iPad’s without being on AT&T…hmmm. Definitely will need a Xoom vs. G-Slate Wifi only battle article when possible.

    Man, I would love to get my hands on one of these. When this comes to T-Mobile, it’s gonna be mine for sure!

    Maybe the V909 is the G Surf (another name mentioned when the G Slate name was introduced a month or so ago) and the G Slate is the V900? Just a guess…………
