2011 wasn't the best year that LG's mobile devision has ever seen. It released a couple of decent handsets that didn't quite take off and a tablet that has nearly been forgotten. So, what is a company to do in a situation such as this? Release another lackluster piece of hardware, of course!
Enter the Optimus Pad LTE, the Korean manufacturer's first go at a 4G LTE-enabled tablet. Packed with last year's hardware, this little guy will be nearly outdated by the time it hits retail shelves:
- 8.9-inch 1280x768 IPS display
- 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor
- 8MP rear shooter/2MP 'round front
- 32GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
- Android 3.2
- 6,800mAh battery
- 497 grams
- 9.3mm thin
Okay, so maybe the Optimus Pad LTE has a couple of good things going for it - at 497 grams, it enters the arena at 69 grams lighter than the thin-and-sleek Galaxy Tab 10.1, and 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot is nothing to scoff at, either.
