LG Optimus Pad

Android smartphone overload aside, Mobile World Congress saw the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, LG Optimus Pad, and HTC Flyer, three new products entering the increasingly competitive tablet space.  The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a stock build of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 10.1-inch display (in case the name didn't give it away), an 8-megapixel camera, front-facing camera, and a new textured back.

The LG Optimus Pad is the first 3D tablet, though unlike the Optimus 3D, you'll need 3D glasses to take advantage of it.  Like the Motorola XOOM and Galaxy Tab 10.1, it has Honeycomb pre-installed.  Last but not least, HTC took the wraps off of the Flyer, complete with a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor, 7-inch display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a front-facing camera.  It has Android 2.4 (also known as "Gingerbread") with HTC's Sense user interface, though HTC has customized the OS for use on a tablet.  I can't say that I was as impressed with it as I have been with past HTC devices, but I'm sure some users will appreciate the unibody construction and HTC Scribe technology in day-to-day use.

That's not to mention the HP TouchPad, announced last week at the company's event in San Francisco.  Out of the tablets announced recently, which one would you buy?  Cast your vote and tell me why below!
