Android Honeycomb LG Optimus Pad Gains Review

As you are no doubt aware, LG is hitting the tablet game with their new LG Optimus Pad, an 8.9-inch tablet that will come out to play sporting the tablet specific operating system Android 3.0 Honeycomb and pack an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHz processor.

An article on Tech UK reports that whilst at MWC 2011 in Barcelona the guys over at Techradar managed to get some hands-on playtime with the LG Optimus Pad and have given the Honeycomb tablet a review.

The Techradar guys say that the Tegra 2 chip in the LG Optimus Pad really shows performance wise and they were able to zip round the interface at speed, and although a little dark and imposing Android 3.0 Honeycomb is excellent and includes Google talk as standard.

Comparing the LG Optimus Pad to the Motorola Xoom when it comes to ports the guys said the Optimus Pad ports layout is better than the Motorola Xoom, which is “a mess”. Keyboard wise the LG Optimus Pad is quick and responsive and as for screen orientation switching they say the Optimus Pad is quick and more responsive than the HP TouchPad.

You can check out the full LG Optimus Pad review by hitting up their website which also has an abundance of images, and we have a little MWC 2011 LG Optimus Pad video footage for your viewing pleasure below courtesy of the guys over at MobileBurn, so mash that play button and check it out…enjoy.
