Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy have grabbed yet another exclusive after the Motorola Xoom 3G and the Nexus S as the LG Optimis Pad looks set to go on sale there from April 2011.

Nvidia's Nick Stam told Techradar that the 3D tablet will go on sale at Carphone Warehouse exclusively in April or May 2011 and most likely on pay monthly deals only.

Carphone Warehouse will also sell the Motorola Xoom 3G on pay monthly deals with the HTC Flyer and the Samsung Galaxy Tab also amongst tablets on sale on contracts.

The tablet, which was launched at the Mobile World Congress a few days ago, comes with an Nvidia Tegra 2 with two ARM Cortex A9 processors clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS and a 8.9-inch 1280x769 pixels touchscreen.

As expected, it will run Android Honeycomb and its unique selling point is the fact that it will be the only tablet on the market capable of recording (but not displaying) 3D content thanks to two five megapixel stereoscopic cameras.

It also comes with a front facing camera, full HD decoding capabilities and a HDMI port. It is likely to be one of the more expensive tablets on the market because of its 3D capabilities; whether this will generate more sales, we'd like to see.
