It’s nice to see a bunch of new tablets packing Android head to market to complete with the iPad and Galaxy Tab. LG’s Optimus pad will make for a good option for some geeks and LG has announced that at least in Japan pre-orders are set to start on March 15.

The Japanese market version of the the Optimus Pad will be model number L-06C and will be offered through NTT DOCOMO, the largest mobile operator in Japan. The Japanese version of the tablet will be loaded with apps aimed at the needs of the Japanese market with things like BeeTV offering content tailored to DOCOMO customers and a range of eBooks and comics via 2Dfacto.

We already know all the details on the tablet, but in case you missed them, the tablet has an 8.9-inch screen and runs Android. The screen resolution is 1280 x 768 and the aspect ratio is 15:9. The tablet runs a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra dual-core processor and supports 1080p along with packing in a 3D camera. The tablet sports dual 5MP cameras with one on the front and one on the back.
