LG Optimus Pad gets NVIDIA Tegra 2 & Android Honeycomb
We've all got Android tablet fever, but the only cure in reach is the Samsung Galaxy Tab. If you're patient, it might be worth waiting for LG's Optimus Pad tablet, expected in January of 2011.

The Optimus Pad will be an 8.9-inch tablet, that LG's VP of marketing claims will be "better than the iPad...and surprisingly productive." This is due in part to the inclusion of the blistering dual-core Tegra 2 processor from NVIDIA, and the tablet-tailored Android Honeycomb (also due out in January).

Besides the hardware and OS, the LG tablet is also expected to feature some more diverse functionality. An LG official said that "While the existing tablet PCs focus on e-book, movie, music and the Internet functions, LG's new tablet PC is jumping into the market with more diverse contents based on powerful functions." These "diverse contents" might be part of Android Honeycomb, or they may be exclusive to LG's tablet.

We can't say for certain, but the LG Optimus Pad might shape up to be a real competitor. The middle-of-the-road 8.9-inch screen might be just what consumers are looking for. Also considering the Galaxy Tab's mixed welcome, consumers should at least consider waiting for LG to step in the ring before jumping on the Galaxy Tab.

This doesn't seem original. Talk about deja vu. I think I've seen this with the Samsung Galaxy phone, then turned came out with a Galaxy tab.... Am I not right? I don't know, it just seems like LG just spoofed Samsung's stuff.

Exactly actually, except it was gingerbread ...guess now since they know gingerbread is 2.3 nobody is as interested they have to go the NEXT NEXT level to honeycomb- the new one will be the "Droid Pad" loaded g force 9 dual core and 4.0 Ice Cream Truck.
