In case you didn’t know, we have an editor of our sister site up in Barcelona, taking part in Mobile World Congress 2011. Since LG launched its Optimus Pad 8.9 inch Honeycomb tablet today, we thought it was appropriate to give you a close look at the device, so here it is:

The device supports a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution, weighs a mere 654 grams and it’s very thin and light, as shown in the clip. This is the very first time that Tablet News will get a close look at Android 3.0 in a hands-on vid of a real, commercial device. The Tegra 2 dual core CPU is put to good use and the graphics of the tablet look amazing.

In case you’re wondering, yes, the slate really is all about 3D, since it can capture tridimensional content using its 5MP sensors at the back. However, the 3D visualizing on the Optimus Pad screen will be done with 3D glasses, that will be purchased separately. The product is shipping in March and as far as the Android experience is concerned, the widget and Homescreen customization is great, as well as the ability to switch between desktops.

This tablet is also able to do streaming of the 3D content you capture via HDMI and DLNA. More info coming soon from MWC!
