LG V900 Pav emphasizes innovation Optimus 8.9-inch, one tablet can create and play a video in three dimensions. Pad results in an IPS brilliant displays. The LG is also interesting because of its price. Would have to pay 800 euros and 32 GB of memory and a 3G module.

The pad of Optimus V900 Korean manufacturer LG is one tablet with a 8.9 inch (22.6 cm) IPS screen. The device is based on a dual core processor Nvidia (Tegra 250 @ 2x1 GHz) and Android OS 3.0.1 (Honeycomb). A 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash memory is factory installed.

This device has two cameras, which can be used in three-dimensional video sequences as a special feature. 3D can display, which can be connected to the HDMI port is required to view 3D movies. In addition, the matching pair of 3D glasses are required. In addition, the 3D registration, the normal full-HD video can be shot (1080x30fps) and high-definition images can be taken.

The tablet should be completed several Google services, like Mail, Talk, Maps and Latitude. Just a Gmail account for their use. E-mail program installed, however, can also manage other accounts, such as IMAP, POP3 and Exchange.

LG's engineers have opted to 8.9 inches, instead of one of the common formats, such as 7 inches or 10.1 for the IPS screen size. The tablet is much greater than, for example, 7-inch models from Creative (7 ZiiO ") or HTC (Flyer).

The difference is not so important in a direct comparison with a compressed more representative of 10 inches.

The tablet of 8.9 inches (243x149x12 mm) is comfortable to hold due to its weight of 630 grams and can also be used easily with one hand. LG has left little space on the pages of glossy screens', so that the visual field is not always covered by the fingers.

Thick pad, with the exception of the tapered edges, 12 mm. But it feels a lot more often. For comparison: Apple iPhone 2 is 8.8 mm thick. Although Optimus iPad2 V900 and have the same weight class (Apple iPad2: 613 g), the LG V900 Optimus feel much heavier. Lightweight product that Apple has lost the LG 8.9-inch tablet.

The other side is made of two parts, the smallest that can be removed from the base unit. It reveals a SIM card slot and a convenient reset button, among other things.

LG is focused on the essentials in terms of interfaces and external control, and has not been very creative with the V900. USB and HDMI port can be found on the bottom. In addition, the dock connector or the cradle of LG SDT-500. We can not say that the plug-in includes a docking station, because he has not provided information on the time of the new LG.

We find the headphone jack, so the adapter and the power button to the left of the unit. There are only two speakers on the opposite side. A microphone is located on the top center and a volume control is a little to the left.

The Optimus V900 can be connected to a PC or Mac via USB. Data Cable only serves to exchange data. The tablet can be charged with the charger. During the test, we found that the transfer of data between the computer and the tablet takes a long time. The transmission rate has not reached the rates specified for USB in any way. Data transfer of 600 MB took over an hour.

The Optimus V900 has several options for connecting to the outside world. For one thing, it has wireless LAN (WLAN) IEEE 802.11 b / g / n and Bluetooth. You can also access the mobile Internet on the go with the V900, when a SIM card from a service provider is used.

The buffer Optimus has a module that supports 3G wireless transfer of data via GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA and HSPA also supports quad-band technology so that the buffer can be used worldwide.

In addition to the different communication options, the Optimus V900 also includes a GPS receiver. This allows the buffer to be used as a navigation system. The software used in the LG tablet is based on Google Maps.

It 'a little' things can be found in an elegant box of the Tablet PC as well as a real multilingual and comprehensive manual, there is a USB data cable, HDMI cable and charging cable. Are we missing a pair of 3-D glasses for viewing 3D movies recorded. LG offers a cradle of Treatment (SDT-500), about 30 million option.

LG defines the warranty period of 24 months. It may, however, vary in different countries, depending on the provisions of the law.

A dual core processor, Tegra 250 model, does its job in the V900 Optimus. The ARM processor Nvidia is running at 1 GHz and has a second level cache of 1 MB. A graphics processor that is responsible for the video output is also incorporated in the Tegra 250 (ULP GeForce).

Dual-Core CPU support multi-tasking. This means that different applications can open the tablet at the same time. The processor has a total of 1024 MB of DDR2 memory.

The Tegra 250 is a system-on-a-chip module, called an SoC, where all the major hardware components are unified. Thus, processor, graphics card, the GSM and UMTS and other components in a module of the SoC.

The Tegra 250 is very popular among manufacturers of pills and is in Xoom Motorola, Dell Streak 7 "or Acer Iconia Tab A500, among others.

The CPU can not reach the maximum system clock of 1000 MHz, as required by the system. The processor clock has always been between 266 MHz and 1000 MHz in the test. The rate of the latter, then the maximum CPU clock, was only recorded in the graphics-intensive games.

CPU clock resolved between 266 and 606 MHz in current use. The Tegra 250 processor almost never used the clock frequencies higher than 760, 816 and 912 MHz. The advantage of this clock is that energy is saved and the battery life is extended.

With 93,087 points, the V900 Optimus is already the second at the first point of reference, BrowserMark and therefore is slightly behind the winner, 10.1v Galaxy Tab by 163 points.

Score was only enough for third place in the V8 engine of Google, which once was rewarded with the Asus Eee TF101 card processor. Motorola Xoom is the second.

V900 Optimus ends in second graph compressed tested, the difference is only 5 points of the benchmark dial. The difference is 40 points in third place Streak 7 "Dell is much clearer.

Both rates are found in Smartbench 2011: first for the productivity and the index of the match. The Optimus V900 just had to admit defeat to Motorola Xoom (3652 points) with 3089 points in the index match. The V900 does Optimus third place in the productivity index with a score of 2537 points. Galaxy Tab 10.1v and again, Xoom Motorola said the top position.

LG V900 was beaten by five tablets tested in the Linpack benchmark and only Pro comes in sixth place with 34 218 MFLOPS. The 0.9.1 SunSpider benchmark result was not so bad. The LG tablet is again among the best four points in 2112.
