Specs, not speculation
Update: You can now read our full LG Optimus Pad review
LG has had more leaks than a tap made by Julian Assange during the build-up to MWC 2011.
The LG Optimus Pad was confirmed to be at the phone show in Barcelona back in early February, though details were still scant regarding what specs the Optimus Pad would have.
LG has revealed a little bit more today, saying in a release: "The LG Optimus Pad sets a new standard for tablets by utilising an 8.9-inch display in a form factor that's comfortable to use one-handed.
"With a 15:9 aspect ratio and Full HD 1080p decoding, the LG Optimus Pad offers users an immersive multimedia environment on a 1280x768 WXGA resolution widescreen display."
The release also notes – as we already knew – that the device sports Honeycomb, runs on a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor and has a built-in 3D camera.
LG Optimus 3D
LG has decided to let some more information trickle through, explaining that the LG Optimus 3D is equipped with a 1GHz OMAP4 dual-core processor, which doubles the graphics performance of its nearest competitor.
The LG Optimus 3D also provides the world's first full 3D experience covering the full spectrum from recording to viewing and sharing 3D content.
This is because it has a dual-lens camera that enables users to capture any moment in true 3D which can then be viewed immediately on the 4.3-inch WVGA glasses-free display. Connectivity on the device includes: HDMI and DLNA.
LG hasn't quite gone the full hog and announced an LG Optimus 3D UK release date or an LG Optimus Pad UK release date for that matter.
But we're guessing the company has to keep some information back for its press conference 15 February, where TechRadar will be getting its hands on both devices.
