Buoyed by the success of the iPad and iPad 2, tablets are rapidly emerging as the next theatre of war for consumer electronics majors. LG has launched its Optimus Pad LTE in South Korea. Designed for the LTE mobile network, it comes with 1280 x 720, 8.9-inch True HD IPS display.
The Optimus Pad LTE also comes with an 8 megapixel camera located at the back and a 2 megapixel camera on the front. High resolution still images apart, you can shoot HD video with the LG Optimus Pad LTE.
You can even edit images and videos using the Smart Movie Editor. This eliminates the need for you to transfer the images or video to your computer and then edit them using Photoshop or similar software tools.
The LG Optimus Tab LTE is also billed as the world’s first tablet that supports an SD memory card of up to 32 GB, which means there’s plenty of storage for all those videos and images you might record.
This tablet is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and runs the Android 3.2 Honeycomb mobile operating system. It offers both HDMI and DLNA connectivity.
If your mental image of a tablet is something bulky, the LG Optimus Pad LTE will change your paradigm. After all, it weighs less than 500 grams- 479 grams to be precise. The tablet is less than 1 cm thick- in fact, just 9.34 mm thick.
This tablet is powered by a 6800 mAH battery. But keep in mind that LTE devices are power guzzlers. The Optimus Tab LTE has yet to make its way to markets in the US or Europe, although it unquestionably will do so fairly soon.
