As LTE is exapanding rapidly, perhaps more rapidly then some would have thought - it's up to manfacturers to go ahead and exapand their device line-ups to include LTE-capable devices as well. LG is fully aware of this and their latest announcement introduces the first LTE-capable tablet from them into the market - the LG Optimus Pad LTE.
“With tablets generating five times more traffic than the average smartphone, it’s not a huge jump to assume that tablet users need and want faster connectivity,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. “The combination of LG’s LTE technology with the tablet form factor is a clear advantage for consumers who use a tablet as their primary consumption device when on the move.”
The LG Optimus Pad LTE will be launching in Korea intially and moving out from there. It will come equipped with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor running Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS, a 1280 x 720 True HD IPS display and 8 megapixel camera for shooting HD video. Plus, HDMI and DLNA support are on board as well as SD Card support for up to 32GB of additional storage.
