LG announces Optimus Pad LTE with 8.9-inch display and Honeycomb, launching initially in Korea

LG has announced a new tablet for its homeland called the Optimus Pad LTE. Compared to the regular Optimus Pad, there are quite a few differences, other than the inclusion of LTE.

For starters, the design is new. The Optimus Pad LTE is thinner at just 9.34mm compared to the 12.7mm thickness of the non-LTE version. It’s also lighter at just 497g compared to the 621g of the Optimus Pad. Other changes include a larger 6,800mAh battery, which is up by 400mAh over the standard version despite the reduced thickness and weight, dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor that replaces the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor on the non-LTE model and a simpler 8 megapixel camera instead of the dual 5 megapixel 3D camera on the back.
The Optimus Pad LTE retains the 8.9-inch, 1280×768 resolution IPS display, 32GB internal memory with a microSD expansion slot, HDMI out, DLNA and Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
The tablet will initially be launching only in Korea but you can expect it in other markets later. No price has been mentioned so far.
