About a year ago, LG launched its Optimus Pad, a tablet which seemingly had everything to become a success. The device had an 8.9-inch screen with 1280x768 pixel resolution, Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 32 GB of storage capacity and support for both GPS and 3G. Unfortunately, LG marketed the tablet, which runs on Android, at a relatively high price. Because of its steep pricetag, the expected success has not yet been met.
The tables may turn for LG's Optimus Pad though, as Fudzilla reports that LG has dropped the price significantly. The device is allegedly available at a price as low as £230 now in European stores. At this price point, LG's tablet is quite interesting. Fudzilla states that it is currently the cheapest tablet to feature GPS and 3G functionality. Combined with the large screen and Tegra 2 dual-core chip, the Optimus Pad should be great for mobile use.
