LG will be having an Android Honeycomb tablet at CES 2011
We've been hearing about LG's Android tablet since the summer, when it became clear that the manufacturer is adopting NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset for the high-end of its Optimus line of Android devices. It wasn't announced at LG's press event in September that we followed live, hoping to see a Honeycomb-running tablet from the number three cell phone manufacturer.

In the meantime, rumors were pointing towards the release of the Tegra 2 Android smartphone - the LG Optimus 2X - on T-Mobile. That leads to the conclusion that we might very well see the tablet, which is referred to as the LG Optimus Pad, coming to Big Magenta as well. Now more details are being released from the land down under, which point to the slate's announcement at the CES show this week, possibly at the official press conference on the 5th. The tablet will be running Android 2.4 Honeycomb, and sport an 8.9" display.

According to LG officials: "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." The folks at LG have also called it "better than the iPad... and surprisingly productive". The source shells out some more speculation that there will be a 10" version as well, but we'll believe it when LG announces it, plus it will be interesting to see what does the company mean by "productive". 

We will be at CES this week, so we will know how this pans out pretty soon.
