If you watched the Super Bowl this past Sunday, you probably saw Motorola’s weird ad for its new Xoom Android tablet. Well, it’s not the only iPad competitor to run Honeycomb this year. The LG G-Slate for T-Mobile should also provide some Honey-flavored distractions on those long train commutes and lazy Sundays.

The G-Slate is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and features an 8.9-inch, 3D-capable, HD display (720p with output to 1080p via HDMI).

“3D capable?” you say? Why, yes! On the back of the G-Slate are two cameras giving users the ability to record stereoscopic 3D video directly to their device, as well as 5MP still shots. You’ll have to wear those goofy glasses to get the 3D effect, but you’ll also be one of the only guys who can watch Avatar in 3D on the go! A spiffy front-facing camera takes care of any video chatting you may need to do on the road.

Expect the G-Slate to run on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 4G network with speeds of (very roughly) 21 Mbps down to give the Xoom and the next iPad a bit of competition later this year.
