Contrary to rumors prior to its launch, the Optimus Pad didn’t have the 3D display that it was rumored to have. Instead, they gave a 3D camera. Now we know what you’re thinking — is it capable of shooting 3D video akin to the Hollywood flicks of today? Well it’s kind of a hit and miss. The tablet has two rear cameras, one is used for actual shooting/video while the other is activated when using the 3D capture mode. It provides multiple modes of capture and while it’s a novel concept, it it’s practicality might be a question for some. Though for the most part, it works very well as a tablet. And being in the mid range of size of 8.9 inches, processing and battery power won’t suffer much. If you’re into 3D or that niche tablet market, then the Optimus Pad is for you. Otherwise, you should look into other tablets first.
