Retailer MobileCity prices Optimus Pad at $700
Retailer MobileCity has just listed the 8.9-inch LG G-Slate tablet up for pre-order for $700. While no ship date is revealed, the device will be tied to T-Mobile and promises to cost $100 less than a retail price for the device. The tablet will sport Android 3.0 and dual rear five-megapixel cameras that can record 3D movies.
The tablet will support T-Mobile's HSPA+ network as well as Wi-Fi and should carry 32GB of storage. Like other Android 3.0 tablets coming so far, it will have a front camera for video chat and run on an NVIDIA Tegra 2.
In comparison, the Xoom from Motorola that also sports Android 3.0 costs $800 from Verizon, though without an associated contract, while a Wi-Fi only version should eventually cost $600. [via PhoneDog]
