T-Mobile says iPad 2 is slower, more expensive than the LG G-something

T-Mobile says iPad 2 is slower, more expensive, Apple dresses it funny

T-Mobile has put up a new web page taking shots at AT&T and iPad 2 when it comes to their LG G-Slate Android Honeycomb tablet.

The Android™-powered T-Mobile® G-Slate™ with Google™ is more than two times faster than the Apple iPad 2 on AT&T and Verizon, and three times faster than the Motorola Xoom on Verizon—and it's less expensive, too! See all the ways this entertainment powerhouse leaves the competition in the dust.Speed claim based on comparison of devices on T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ 42 Mbps network, AT&T’s HSPA+ network, and Verizon’s 3G network.

iPad 2 doesn't run on Verizon's LTE network, so fair enough. But does it leave iPad 2 "in the dust?" I tried to do some research on the G-Slate to see just how killer a device it was, but -- based on their tag page -- even Android Central hasn't written about it since April.
