We’re excited about T-Mobile USA’s upcoming, Tegra-powered LG G2x super phone and G-Slate tablet for lots of reasons.  One of which is that the G2x will be the first device to feature our new Tegra Zone app preloaded; another is that both the G2x and G-Slate run on T-Mobile’s 4G network, so downloads and cross platform gaming will be lightning fast.

Haven’t heard of Tegra Zone? It’s a free app on Android Market that makes it easy to find games optimized for super phones and tablets with Tegra. You can find unique, premium Android games with impressive graphics and smoother gameplay, such as Dungeon Defenders: First Wave Deluxe HD, the first Android game built on Unreal Engine 3, as well as Samurai II: Vengeance, Fruit Ninja THD, Vendetta Online and Galaxy on Fire 2 THD, and more.

These games will rock on the G2x and the G-Slate, the newest Tegra-powered devices. See both at the International CTIA WIRELESS 2011 show in Orlando, Florida:
