Not content with a 3D smartphone, LG also revealed its 3D tablet at Mobile World Congress. Sadly, it will only display 3D only with the aid of glasses and via an HDMI connection to 3D TVs, but you can shoot 3D photos and videos thanks to its dual rear cameras.

As with the Optimus 3D, there’s no release date or price for this device yet, but with Honeycomb onboard, it should deliver a slick Android experience. That said, while this device will probably be a good choice for an entertainment addict with a 3D fetish, based on my first impressions, the Motorola Xoom and Galaxy Tab 10.1 might be better all-purpose, iPad-contending propositions. With some Android tablets being touted at silly-money prices, in the end it will probably all boil down to price.
