LG announces Optimus Pad LTE, forgets to include Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

First seen at the beginning of December, the LG Optimus Pad LTE tablet has been official announced in South Korea this morning.

The tablet is thinner and lighter than the original Optimus Pad, measuring 245 x 151.4 x 9.34 mm, and weighing 497 grams. It will be launched with Android 3.2 Honeycomb on board, and LG said nothing about a possible update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich – which I find weird for a tablet that’s coming out in 2012.

Apart from LTE connectivity, the new Optimus Pad features an 8.9 inch IPS display with 1280 x 768 pixels, Wi-Fi, DLNA, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, HDMI, Smart Movie Editor, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and a 6,800 mAh battery. The Optimus Pad LTE is the first tablet to support SD cards of up to 32GB.

The LG Optimus Pad LTE will be initially available in South Korea. There’s no word on when exactly, and neither for what price.

    Nice IPS screen, but the resolution is too slow for 2012 and the SoC is too old to compete with the new Tegra3 and Exonys next-gen devices.

    Fail LG. Another fail. You need to start producing faster, instead of lagging behind all the time.
