LG Optimus Pad 3D Specs
LG Optimus Pad is first pill with support for 3D with dual-lens camera and a combine of anaglyph glasses for tricking your brain into pondering the third dimension, however can the 8.9-inch pill’s 3D trickery be enough to lure the Android Honeycomb tablet buyer into a purchase ? LG claims that it is the elongated type and higher overall ergonomics of the slate that provides it a novel typing advantage as your fingers will reach each letter in portrait mode, however apart from its we have a tendency toird tall body and 3D cameras we found it exhausting to differentiate this pill among the onslaught of slates out there.

LG Optimus Pad 3D Price
For a long time we didn’t know how much this tablet was going to cost, but it’s just gone on sale in Carphone Warehouse for a scarcely believable £749.99. Yes you read that right. No, you’re not imagining it – sit down before you hurt yourself.
LG Optimus Pad 3D Design
After the release of the iPad 2, it seems that tablet designers have started collectively singing the slimness mantra and rightfully so – apart from the wow effect of seeing something so thin, holding the load of a seven to ten inch slate in your hand is not fun and slimmer usually translates into lighter. Well, the LG Optimus Pad has certainly overlooked those trends as it’s nearly 50% thicker than the iPad 2 at 0.47 inches (12mm) and despite it’s smaller screen, it’s heavier as well tipping the scales at 21.87 ounces (620 g) compared to the 21.2 oz (601 g) of the second-gen iPad.
But despite our disappointment with the tablet’s dimensions and weight, we still appreciated the comfortable soft touch back and nice sloped edges contributing to a refined look. Moreover, LG has borrowed the curves and feel of the LG Optimus 2X bringing instant brand recognition for people who have used the phone. The solid build reassures you in the tablet’s quality and even its substantial weight contributes to that feeling at first, but longer sessions (and we can imagine ourselves reading a book for hours) tend to tire the hand.
The 8.9-inch LCD screen on the LG Optimus Pad sports a peculiar resolution of 1280 x 768 justified by the prolonged body of the tablet. The aspect ratio is 15:9 – wide enough for watching movies, which is an area in which the tablet shines with its full HD video recording and playback. Colors are bright, reproduced accurately with excellent viewing angles, but disappointing sunlight legibility. The detailed resolution however actually helps with text legibility a great deal, alleviating browsing and reading along the way. The screen dominates the front side of the LG Optimus Pad, but neatly up top LG has placed a 2-megapixel front facing snapper and a proximity sensor.
