Just a short while ago, Engadget reported about a tweet from a senior official from LG, commenting on an early 2011 release for the LG Optimus Pad. Further to that, the Optimus Pad is said to be equipped with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip plus a Google Android 3.0 (or Honeycomb) running the show.
Engadget - Want some specificity about LG's super-duper tablet roadmap? Last we heard from the Korean tech giant, it was canning plans for a Froyo slate and looking forward to a more suitable iteration of Android, which a senior official at the company has today clarified to mean Honeycomb, describing it as the "tablet PC-version" of the OS. He's even gone beyond the call of PR duty in placing a release schedule for the 8.9-inch LG Pad in the first quarter of 2011, boasting that it'll come with a dual-core Tegra 2 chip inside.
Unfortunately, while we did see the tweet earlier on, it has since been removed and we are still communicating with LG for the official word. But should this be true, 2011 will be an exciting year for tablets, which has Apple's iPad leading the competition as of now. To find out more about the LG Optimus Pad, click here.
