Default LG Optimus Pad 3D to Help Canadians Work Harder and Play Harder

"Today, LG is bringing media content to life with the release of the Optimus Pad, the world's first tablet with a 3D camera. The tablet is the latest in mobile technology, with a dual-core processor and running on the newest Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS. The LG Optimus Pad with Android 3.0 Honeycomb means that, not only will you be able to access all the latest apps from the Android Market, but you'll also be able run multiple apps simultaneously."

Another Android 3.0 tablet thrown into the mix, but this one has a gimmick, a 3D camera. With an 8.9-inch screen, LG is betting that maybe this is the tablet for people that think a 7-inch screen is too small, and a 10-inch screen is too large and unwieldy. Oddly enough, the resolution is 1280x768, or a 15:9 aspect ratio. The ability to capture 3D images and video is interesting, but unless a 3D TV is available, it remains simply a gimmick. Do 3D images seen in 2D still look bad? Does the addition of a 3D camera add value? Price at Rogers range from $449 subsidized (with plan), to $699 (unsubsidized). Canadian readers - thumbs up? thumbs down?
