LG G-Slate for T-Mobile gets official pricing, demands voice plan

T-Mobile has finally slapped an official price tag onto the upcoming T-Mobile G-Slate by LG, the carrier's first Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet. The slate has a smaller, 8.9-inch screen than the Motorola XOOM, and a smaller price as well: $529.99, with a new, two-year agreement.

Unfortunately, that agreement could be pretty expensive over the course of the G-Slate contract. That's because T-Mobile is insisting not only on a data package, like with the XOOM, but on a voice plan as well. You'll need to accommodate a $100 mail-in rebate, too.

On the upside, you get a 3D camera array, 1080p HD capture, HDMI output and a reasonably compact chassis that should be a little more bag-friendly than other Honeycomb tablets out there. More info in our hands-on.
