The LG G-Slate was announced for T-Mobile back at CES, but with no demos proper or any hands-on time (the tablet passed through the conference like a ship in the night) little is actually known about the tablet other than 4G support (in the US at least) and Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Enter LG France, who in response to questioning from GPS&Co unleashed some out-of-left-field claims about the 3D capabilities of the G-Slate.

According to LG France, in addition to a Tegra 2 dual-core processor and HDMI output, the G-Slate will feature an 8.9-inch glasses-free 3D display and the ability to record 3D content. We have absolutely no other evidence to suggest this as true other than a hint from an LG rep that their 3D display technology showed off at CES might be popping up in devices sooner than we expect.

We aren’t holding our breath on this one, but if LG does manage to out a 3D tablet when they fully reveal the G-Slate (we are assuming that will happen at MWC 2011) we will be pleasantly surprised. In the meantime, Nintendo is in the process of showing off their 3DS at a press event today in NYC. Love it or hate it, looks like 3D will be sticking around for a little while.
