LG Optimus Pad arrives at Carphone Warehouse

Popular high-street mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse has taken stock of the 3D enabled LG Optimus Pad tablet, with a cost attached of £799.

The LG Optimus Pad was first announced at Las Vegas’ CES, under the guise of the American branded T-Mobile G Tablet where this 8.9-inch touch screen device is now available SIM free and unlocked.

LG’s Optimus Pad is powered by dual core 1Ghz Nvida Tegra 2 processor, whilst running from the Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.0 OS – a platform specifically geared up for tablet devices.

The 8.9-inch screen has a 1280x768 resolution and 15:9 aspect ratio for displaying video, whilst the Optimus Pad has full 1080p video decoding for decent HD movie playback.

On the back of the device is a dual lens camera, which operates in the same way the LG Optimus 3D mobile for 3D capture – only the Pad can’t display those images or footage natively, but can directly export them to a 3D TV screen.

One Mobile Ring caught up with LG at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year, where we managed to capture on video a hands-on walkthrough of the tablet device – seen here.
