Gadget geeks in Japan that are fans of tablets will be able to get their hands on the new LG Optimus Pad tablet very soon. NTT DoCoMo has offered up the official launch date for the tablet within Japan. This is the last key bit of information that we didn’t have before, we already know all the specs of the tablet.

The official launch date in Japan is set at Thursday March 31. However, due to the tragic earthquake and tsunami DoCoMo notes that the tablet might not be in all stores on launch day due to shipping delays in infrastructure problems. If you have missed the specs of the tablet before it has an 8.9-inch screen and runs Android 3.0.

Inside the machine is a dual-core processor, 3G modem, and lots more. The screen resolution is 1280 x 768 and the tablet has a 5MP rear camera with a 1.2MP front camera for conferencing. We still have no indication from T-Mobile in the US of when the Optimus Pad will land here for geeks to pick up. The tablet went up for pre-order in Japan on March 15.
