LG G-Slate (Optimus Pad): Price Cheaper than Xoom?

We have some good news for those of you planning to pick up the LG G-Slate or Optimus Pad as it’s also known, as one online retailer has decided to post their pre-order price for the dual-core equipped tablet, giving you an indication on how it fairs against other tablets on the market.

The retailer in question is Mobile City, and if you head to their listing here, you’ll see that they have priced the LG G-Slate at $699.99, and they’ve also included the apparent retail price at $799, as reported from Phandroid.

If the information is true, then it means that LG’s device will be $100 cheaper than the just released Motorola Xoom tablet on Verizon, and will provide T-Mobile fans with a major incentive to pick one up on launch.

Dont forget that just like the Xoom, the G-Slate will feature a 1Ghz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and will run on Android 3.0 Honeycomb. You could also argue that the G-Slate possesses better features than the Xoom, as it will also come with a fully functional 3D camera, allowing users to take 3D photos and even record videos in 3D as well – a feature which LG can boast proudly.

What are your thoughts on this potential price? We think that $699 is very reasonable indeed for the G-Slate – do you agree?
