LG Confirms Launch of 3D Optimus Pad For MWC 2011

LG is likely to be the first manufacturer to ship a 3D tablet, the Optimus Pad, with the device likely to be showcased at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona.

Florin from Unwiredview says that the T-Mobile G-Slate is not exactly the Optimus Pad. The device has a 8.9-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1280x768 pixels which is ideal for Honeycomb; what sets ia apart is the fact that it is a 3D one that doesn't require a 3D glass.

The tablet also features a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset clocked at 1GHz, a front facing camera, a 5-megapixel rear facing camera with two LED flashes, HDMI, USB, 32GB internal memory, possibly expandable to 64GB thanks to a SD card slot.

The Optimus Pad will also come with a 6400mAh battery, roughly the same as the iPad; expect it to debut shortly after the launch of the T-Mobile G-Slate in March 2011 and to go on sale for around £499 like the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Some news sources are saying that the tablet will be able to record in 3D which would imply that the Optimus Pad must have TWO camera lenses.
