LG today announced Optimus Pad at a press event in Mobile World Congress. LG Optimus Pad will begin shipping in local markets starting in March. Well, it seems European and Asian market markets might see Optimus One pad before Xoom launch.
Optimus Pad sports 8.9-inch display, Android 3.0 platform, and NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile processor. It is also world’s first tablet with a 3D camera.
“With a flood of tablets hitting the market, we felt strongly that the LG Optimus Pad needed to set a new standard for what a tablet should be,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. “We think the LG Optimus Pad achieves the right blend of portability and viewability with no performance compromises.”
