This year, the Mobile World Congress brought some important news in terms of mobiles and tablet. We discovered then that, aside from its wonderful new cell phone, LG is also planning to launch a cool tablet that goes under the name of LG Optimus Pad. LG fans really wanted to know when this tablet will be available on the market so we are bringing you some information in this direction.
Engadget reported that a press release submitted by LG revealed a €999 price for the tablet running Android Honeycomb. Later on, Amazon Germany’s website listed the very same tablet with a €100 discount which means you could have ordered the LG Optimus Pad for a price of €899. An Engadget update revealed a couple of hours later that the item listed on Amazon was gone. Amazing, isn’t it? Those of you not aware of the power of this tablet are surely wondering why would anyone pay more than $1000 for a tablet when there are so many alternatives out there that probably come with more decent specs and a wide array of features for only $600?
As we mentioned before, the Optimus Pad will run the special operating system designed by Google especially for tablets: Honeycomb. It hosts an 8.9 inch screen and inside the device you have a dual-core Tegra 2 chipset. Hm, could it be that this device costs so much because of the 5 MP dual-lens camera on the back? You know, the one which is capable of taking 3D pictures and recording 3D videos? The price still seems too spicy though. There is a HDMI port for projecting images on a high-def TV. This 654 gram tablet also provides users with 1080p playback support and some other cool features but we would like to know something: do you think these specs justify the price?
