LG Optimus LTE Pad made official, no ICS though

We recently told you about a rumored event taking place next month where Apple could showcase a new iPad running iOS 5.1. The tablet market is getting increasingly crowded as companies are bringing out a variety of products to tempt consumers to part with their cash. Today the LG Optimus LTE Pad is made official, but there is no Android ICS though.

The company has recently announced the availability of its first LTE compatible tablet PC, and according to a report on Ubergizmo it will be known as the Optimus Pad LTE. Besides LTE technology the tablet PC will feature an 8.9-inch True HD screen with 1280 x 720 resolution.

There is an eight megapixel rear mounted camera, with a two megapixel shooter round the front. It is powered by a Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual core chip, and surprisingly comes running Android 3.2 Honeycomb. Currently there is no information whether LG plans to upgrade the device to Ice Cream Sandwich in the future.

Internal storage comes in at 32GB with a microSD card input for a further 32GB. Other features include an HDMI output, 6,800mAh battery, and DLNA connectivity. The Optimus Pad LTE weighs in at 497g and measures 245 x 151.4 x 9.34 mm.

Some of the features such as the display and LTE connectivity will appeal too many, but the lack of ICS will be a disappointment. LG’s new device will be making its debut in South Korea before releasing into other markets. There is also no information regarding price at the moment.
