LG Optimus Pad Priced at €899 in Germany

Just 24 hours after the dual-core iPad 2 was announced, the dual-core LG Optimus Pad (also known as T-Mobile’s LG G-Slate) has shown up on Amazon.de with an €899 price tag. The news comes just one week after the 10.1-inch Tegra 2-powered Galaxy Tab appeared in Portugal with a €700. Granted, tablets are typically more expensive in Europe than they are in the United States, but €900 is steep no matter what way you look at it.

The crazy thing is, earlier in the year, LG revealed the recommended retail price for the device was €999, so this price from Amazon Germany is actually a hundred euro less than what LG announced in its press release. The Optimus Pad has dual-cameras for shooting in 3D, a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 3D-capable 1280x768 display, and 32GB of storage. Worth €900 to those of you in Europe and thinking of picking up a tablet?
