Its the year of the tablets and LG is prepping its own G-Slate. An LG France spokesman disclosed that the Tegra 2-based tablet’s 8.9-inch LCD will not only be accompanied by a glasses-free 3D display, but is also more than able to record 3D video. Having said that, it ought to be accompanied by an HDMI output, but it remains to be seen whether this is HDMI 1.4 and can output 3D to a connected TV.
