In the video above, we have the LG Optimus Pad, an NVIDIA Tegra 2-based system (1 GHZ, dual-core CPU), two rear-facing 5 megapixel cameras (I believe for 3D image/video capture), a front-facing 1.3 GHZ camera, and what looks like a 7 inch screen. I tried playing back the video in 720p and pausing it to see if I could make out the spec sheet, but no dice. It looks like Android 2.x rather than Honeycomb, which is interesting given that several of the tablets I saw at CES last month were going to launch with Honeycomb. Still, the performance and design of the LG Optimus Pad look excellent. I'll have to keep my eyes out for this one!</p><p><strong>UPDATE:</strong> <a href="http://www.netbooknews.com/19801/hands-on-8-9-lg-optimus-pad-tegra-2-stereoscopic-tablet/?utm_source=twitterfeed&amp;utm_medium=twitter&amp;utm_campaign=Feed:+netbooknews/nbn+(Netbook+News)" target="_blank">NetbookNews has more details on this product</a>. Turns out it's an 8.9 inch screen, and it is indeed Honeycomb-based.</p>
