Looks like the LG Optimus Pad is coming to town very soon. LG Philippines is going to open the pre-order site to the public tomorrow. And to sweeten the deal, they’re giving a Php15,000 discount to those who signed up for the pre-order of the Android tablet.
Here’s the screenshot of the pre-order micro-site which should be up soon.
The LG Optimus Pad is the first Android tablet that supports 3D video recording of up to 720p using dual HD cameras at the back panel.
LG Optimus Pad P980
Dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 1.0GHz processor
8.9-inch IPS display @ 1280×768 pixels
32GB internal storage
Two 5MP camera
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Android 3.0 Honeycomb
We still don’t have the final price of the Optimus Pad but considering they’re offering Php15k off, the SRP I’m sure it’s going to be under Php20k once the discount is applied (I’m thinking Php15k after the discount).
Update: Ok, the banner ad from LG is up on the sidebar and I’m seeing a retail price of Php50k (whoa!), so even if you apply the Php15k discount it ends up at Php35k. Now I have to say that’s really pretty expensive.
