For a carrier that's about to to be amalgamated with a much larger one, T-Mobile isn't keeping quiet in the corner. Instead they have finally giving us some pricing on their much-awaited T-Mobile G-Slate Android Tablet. The LG-manufactured dual core device will cost you $529, and you'll be signing a two-year contract to keep it that low. Don't forget you're agreeing to two years of monthly data charges with that contract, too.
