Top Toy: New 4G Tablet PC, Android OS Sync Up

With Motorola, Asus, Vizio and an army of rival manufacturers joining the Android tablet PC party, it’s unsurprising to see LG and T-Mobile’s long-rumored G-Slate jumping on the bandwagon as well. Among the first 4G high-speed wireless network-compatible slate computers powered by the tablet-optimized Android 3.0 (codename: Honeycomb) operating system, it also predictably comes bursting at the seams with Google applications. The one running constant between dozens of these devices, Honeycomb promises a slick interface seemingly tailor-made for oversized screen sizes, including streamlined notifications, robust widgets, intuitive multitasking and customizable homescreens and shortcuts. Improved Web browsing with tabs, private Internet surfing options and Google Chrome bookmark syncing is promised as well. While additional details are presently slim, expect the device to ship chock full of software programs such as Google Talk (voice/video chat), Google Books (digital reading) and Google Maps (navigation) that capitalize on its more finger-friendly form factor and brisker broadband access.
