This week LG announced their new tablet, the LG Optimus Pad LTE. After a couple of failures in the electronics market, like their LG Revolution, LG has finally come up with a product that seems to be worth the money. Boasting a 8 megapixel Camera and 1.5 GHz Dual-Core processor, the Optimus Pad LTE just might be LG’s big break in the already fierce tablet market. Also it’s 1280 x 768 True HD Display will “wow!” just about anyone who uses it. If you had memory issue’s with your other tablets, worry no more. The Optimus Pad LTE is the world’s first tablet to support up to a 32 micro-SD chip. Bringing the memory of the Tablet to a mind-boggling 64 GB. The Tab’s LTE and the slim form will allow the tab to shine above the rest in this fierce Market. My only concern is that, with the LTE connectivity and the quality of the display will the tab’s battery, only 6,800mAh, be able to handle it? A display as good as the Optimus Pad LTE’s is bound to eat up some battery life, but coupled with the LTE connectivity? We have seen that many electronic that have the LTE function use up the device’s battery just as easily as I would eat a piece of cake. So will the battery handle the features? It’s a question that will have to wait until the tab comes out into the markets. Other than that I am excited for this tab and I think that it will be the tab to beat and will be a great product to buy once it comes to our markets.
