The LG Optimus Pad LTE announced by the company recently, brings in LTE capabilities and integration of a True HD IPS display, proffering 1280 x 720p resolution to help it stand out from amongst the other Honeycomb-running slabs available in the market. Additionally, the tablet’s DLNA and HDMI connectivity should enable seamless sharing of content.
Embedded with an 8.9-inch screen, the device boasts of 32GB onboard memory, while the external storage can be expanded up to 32GB as well with help from a microSD card. Its 245mm x 151.4mm x 9.34mm form factor tips the scale at 497g and comes incorporated with an 8MP snapper on the rear panel. The secondary camera is a 2MP one for chats with friends and family.
“With tablets generating five times more traffic than the average smartphone, it’s not a huge jump to assume that tablet users need and want faster connectivity,” states Dr. Jongseok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications. “The combination of LG’s LTE technology with the tablet form factor is a clear advantage for consumers who use a tablet as their primary consumption device when on the move.”
Underneath the hood, the Optimus Pad LTE houses a 6,800mAh battery and a Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual core chip. A peek at other features reveals a Smart Movie Editor to enhance snaps and videos, Web Duet which facilitates SNS, e-mail and text sharing with search attributes.
