Speaking at the launch of the tablet, Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company said, “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. 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.”

Here is a quick look at the specifications of the Optimus Pad LTE:

  • Android 3.2 Honeycomb
  • 8.9-inch IPS True HD Display with a resolution of 1280 x 768
  • Qualcomm 1.5GHz Dual-Core processor
  • 8MP rear camera for capturing HD video
  • 2MP front facing camera
  • MicroSD card expansion up to 32GB
  • 6,800mAh battery

Apart from this, the Optimus Pad LTE also sports other features, such as Smart Movie Editor for editing images and videos, Web Duet for e-mailing, messaging and SNS sharing as well as On-Screen Phone, which allows compatibility with LG smartphones. The Optimus Pad LTE is going to be first launched in Korea and later rolled out globally. For more information on the tablet, click here.
