LG Optimus Pad preview: First look


An 8.9" screen hits the sweet spot for tablets and LG's Optimus Pad shows good thinking. The first tablet of the company will want to make a difference among more or less uniform rivals. Tablets coming to the market look almost the same - screens,...

Review LG V900 Optimus Pad Tablet/MID


1, 2, or 3D? LG highlights innovations with the V900 Optimus Pad. The 8.9 inch, handy tablet can create and play three dimensional videos. The pad also scores with a brilliant IPS screen. The LG product is also interesting in view of its price. It's...

3D video recording, Good viewing angles, Handy size, Brilliant colors / contrast, The tablets design with a screen size of 8.9 inches is a lot bigger than in a 7 inch tablet, but just still fits in the pants or jacket pocket

No memory expansion possible, Device heats up noticeably, High-gloss display surface, Comparatively poor digicams, Lacking support of video / audio formats, Few preinstalled apps, Slow USB port, No 3D glasses, Unfortunately, the 32 GB flash memory...

You've already heard about the LG Optimus Pad – the first tablet with support for 3D with dual-lens camera and a pair of anaglyph glasses for tricking your brain into thinking about the third dimension, but will the 8.9-inch tablet's 3D trickery be...

LG Optimus Pad


The LG Optimus Pad is a brand new tablet that runs on Android 3.0 and features dual cameras which allow 3D video to be shot. The design of the tablet is very wide and can be awkward to use if you are used to more traditionally shaped tablets. The...

3D video cameras; Snappy performance

Non-native 3D screen

Built for the budding 3D moviemaker. Pricier compared to similar tablets.

Review: LG Optimus Pad and T-Mobile G-Slate


LG hopes to stand out in tablets with 3D and a rare size.

Just the right screen size for Android 3 ; Decent cameras still rare in the tablet world ; Good price for 32GB and 3G ; Pleasing screen ; Good battery life for the size ; 3D if you like it ; Potentially more flexible when apps come

Heavier and thicker than the larger iPad 2 ; Android 3 still flawed: few apps, buggy, unpolished ; Aspect ratio often too short or narrow for certain content ; 3D mostly a gimmick ; OS fragmentation still an issue ; No microSD slot ; Expensive in the...

LG was one of the few companies to readily acknowledge that it had started work on an Android tablet as a direct reaction to Apple making the iPad. When it launched the Optimus Pad -- better known to the US as the T-Mobile G-Slate -- it set out to n

LG Optimus Pad / T-Mobile G-Slate Tablet Review


Good hardware design, Fast data speeds, Solid camera with 3D capabilities, Good battery life

On the expensive side, Few tablet-aware apps available, 3D video viewing requires old-school glasses

I've been using a Motorola Xoom on a daily basis since before it was available for purchase, so I'm pretty familiar with Android Honeycomb and its quirks. And while the T-Mobile G-Slate could use slightly improved reception, I like it, as a whole, much...
