LG has a fair few “world’s firsts” under its belt. There’s the world’s first dual-core smartphone (LG Optimus 2X), world’s first autostereoscopic smartphone (LG Optimus 3D) and world’s first 3D tablet (LG Optimus Pad).
And why not throw in a fourth for good measure. Lucky Goldstar has lifted the lid on the LG Optimus Pad LTE, and it’s the world’s first tablet to support 32GB of microSD action.
Of course, the LTE extension means there’s little chance of us seeing the LG Optimus Pad LTE on these shores - not in that particular form, anyways. Though there’s always the chance we’ll get a special treat at Mobile World Congress.
Other LG Optimus Pad LTE specs include an 8.9in IPS True HD display with 1280x768 resolution, Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP/2MP camera combo, 6,800mAh battery and HDMI connectivity.
Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) will initially take charge, though we expect an upgrade to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) will follow in due course. Maybe.
"With tablets generating five times more traffic than the average smartphone, it's not a huge jump to assume that tablet users need and want faster connectivity," screamed Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile.
"The combination of LG's LTE technology with the tablet form factor is a clear advantage for consumers who use a tablet as their primary consumption device when on the move."
The LG Optimus Pad LTE will touch down in South Korea first, and we expect a Stateside release to follow. Are we bothered? Nah, not really.
