T-Mo Announces G-Slate Pricing: $529.99 With 2 Year Contract

There have been a lot of T-Mo customers who have been eagerly awaiting a pricing announcement for the LG Android powered G-Slate tablet device.  Word finally came down today in the form of a very short press release (available after the break), and the price for the unit is not as good of news as people were hoping.  To get your hands on the 3D capable, Honeycomb powered device, you are going to have to shell out $529.99 with a 2 year commitment, and that is after getting a mail in rebate of $100.  Still, people were lining up to buy the Xoom when it was released at a higher price, what do you think?  Is the $529.99 price point acceptable to you?
