Rooting the T-Mobile G-Slate opens up a world of possibilities that would otherwise be out of reach. Root access gives you complete control of the system, which means you can do much more with the device than LG and your carrier, T-Mobile probably want you to do. It lets you install awesome root-only apps, uninstall apps that can’t normally be removed, do complete backups (Nandroid), flash custom ROMs, apply themes, change boot animations, and more. LG Pad

When it launched, the LG Optimus Pad was going for a (quite expensive) $449.99 with a new 3-year Rogers data contract and a high $699.99 outright a month ago. Today, there’s some good news concerning Rogers’s pricing of this tablet. The good news is that you’ll end up paying just $254.99 with a 3-year contract or $549.99 sans contract for the tablet. This price drop is Rogers’s attempt to give the LG Optimus Pad a little more appeal to the buyers who usually would go directly to the Apple alternative. LG Pad
