The Optimus Pad tablet has been put on preorder at Carphone Warehouse for a whopping £750 SIM free, which is a tad more expensive than we were expecting.
The LG tablet bears a unique selling point, the fact that it is 3D compatible. Whether this warrants a near fifty per cent price premium over a similar Apple iPad 2 tablet, we're not sure at all.
The Optimus Pad is, in a nutshell, a bigger version of the Optimus 3D handset which was launched at MWC, except that it has a bigger screen and no calling or texting features.
It has an 8.9-inch capacitive touchscreen with a screen resolution of 1280x768 pixels but cannot display 3D at all, unlike its smaller sibling; the only way you can actually watch the content is on a 3D TV with glasses.
The tablet records 3D content via two five megapixel cameras located at the back of the tablet and is handled by the dual core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 system on chip onboard with 1GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage.
This version also comes with 3G, Wi-Fi, a front facing two megapixel camera, Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system as well as USB and HDMI connectivity.
Interestingly, the device is heavier than both the iPad 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and is just slightly smaller than both of them because of a much thicker bezel.
