LG had their press event today at MWC and as expected, announced the Optimus Pad which is the world’s first tablet with a built-in 3D camera.  The promo video above gives you a pretty incredible overview of the device and shouldn’t have any trouble competing with the Motorola XOOM even if it does have a slightly smaller screen.  Well, until we see a price tag of course.

The LG Optimus Pad sets a new standard for tablets by utilizing an 8.9-inch display in a form factor that`s comfortable to use one-handed. With a 15:9 aspect ratio and Full HD 1080p decoding, the LG Optimus Pad offers users an immersive multimedia environment on a 1280 x 768 WXGA resolution widescreen display. The new device sports Honeycomb, Google`s latest platform optimized for tablet devices with an optimized and intuitive PC-like interface for running tablet software. LG`s tablet runs on a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor for unmatched performance and power management. In addition, the LG Optimus Pad is the world`s first tablet with a built-in 3D camera, enabling users to capture vivid image and video content to be viewed on a high definition 3D TV or shared on the web via YouTube 3D.

These 3D capabilities pulling anyone towards this device over the XOOM?
