Though official details on the tablet’s specs are slim, there are a few snippets we’re nearly certain of. Firstly, it’s that the Optimus Pad will be running Android version 3.0, the Honeycomb build designed specifically for tablet-sized devices. Secondly, that it’s going to have an 8.9 inch glasses-free 3D display, with dual-rear cameras for 3D still and video recording. A dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU is also top of the tablet-followers wish list.
The news follows T-Mobile announcing the arrival of their G-Slate tablet, itself expected to be a re-branding of the Optimus Pad. If that prooves to be the case, you can add a 6,400 mAh battery to that list of specs.
We’re heading out to Barcelona for MWC 2011 next week, so check back then for the full lowdown on the device.
