LG Optimus Pad, Transformers edition

When LG first announced their Optimus series of Android phones last year we got a lot of comments joking that they should release a Transformers-themed device called the Optimus Prime. I guess LG was listening because their latest teaser video for the Optimus Pad (aka G-Slate) shows the tablet transforming into a giant robot that likes to crush apples. Check out the superhero version of LG’s tablet after the jump.

Update: LG took the video down, but the internets saved a backup copy.

From LGThe LG “Optimus” family has many members to be proud of — the most recent addition, the LG Optimus Pad, is arriving at MWC 2011! But you probably weren’t aware that the LG Optimus Pad was actually a superhero. And like all superheroes, it has a secret identity. Don’t believe us? Check out this trailer.

    Why should I go out and buy a tablet for several hundred dollars?

    I use my phone for internet browsing and some games, and my laptop for typing papers, making powerpoints, and for rooting my phone.

    Also, the specs of the tablets aren’t as good as the specs of laptops, but they’re the same price.

    I think it will be at least 3 more years before I even consider buying a tablet.

      Glad your phone doesn’t reboot, mine doesn’t either. Funny since only SOME Nexus S reboot so I’m guessing that is a hardware problem. I’ve been running GB on the mytouch slide for as long as the CM 7 nightlies has been rolling out and no reboot.

      Anyway, I want to see a battle between the BB Playbook, the WebOS tablet and any Android 3.0 Tablet. (since those are the only FUNCTIONAL tablets that can get the work done.)

      Also, Can Taylor or some other manager of this site block this jack ass? IP block or something? He gets on and trolls about how he loves last years technology.

    The 3D graphic’s quality isn’t as good as it should get. It’s just about the same as some video games.

    I have a confession to make, I am allergic to 3D and any gadgets that are aggressive about it.
