LG Optimus Pad: Optimistic Following Hands-on

As were following everything that’s happening at MWC 2011 we thought we would just bring you an update on the LG Optimus Pad, it seems after seeing a video posted online it should bode well to be optimistic following this hands-on demonstration. You can see this video at the bottom of this post.

In a previous post by Maddy Rowe we talked about not under estimating the Optimus Pad, which with its impressive specification list pouring with goodies such as an 8.9inch screen, dual-core CPU, both 3D cameras and screen and of course all running on the beautifully crafted Android 3.0 Honeycomb, we weren’t going to under estimate its capability, until now.

Following this post and hands-on video by Vlad Savov from Engadget we now have a bit of optimism running through our brains. Shortly after picking the device up he managed to crash both Google Maps and the native browser on the Tablet, he also struggled with its 3D camera after not being able to launch it due to the fact that there was about four apps already open. You can read his full review by following this link here.

Although the guys from Engadget witnessed a few problems with this Tablet PC it would appear that not everyone shared the same experience with this device. In this post by Ben Sillis from Electricpig.co.uk he can be found saying this about his time with the device “From the time we had to play with the LG Optimus Pad, we were impressed by the blazing performance of its dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 system on a chip pumping away inside”.

With these devices expected to rival such competition as the Motorola Xoom, BlackBerry PlayBook and the forthcoming iPad 2, let’s hope that it is dramatically improved before release to really give its competitors a run for their money.

What are your feelings on the LG Optimus Pad?
