We’ve heard speculations that LG was preparing a slate of its own, possibly as a reply for Samsung’s Galaby Tab, but now it seems the product is more real than ever. It’ll apparently be part of the Optimus lineup of smartphones and the tablet will be dubbed Optimus Pad. The folks of Multimediawereld.be were present at the Dealer Days LG 2010, where LG announced said slate.

The company claims that the Optimus Pad will rival the iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab and in case you’re wondering we have nothing on the device, no trace of specs, dimensions, price or launch date. We know that it’ll be running Android and that it’s a super slim piece of gadgetry.
