Optimus Pad

The LG Optimus Pad will be the international version of the G-Slate and will be shown off at Mobile World Conference, which kicks off in a couple days. 

In the meantime, a commercial has popped up which features the Optimus Pad as a Transformer. The commercial begins like a movie trailer and shows the Optimus Pad becoming a Transformer, highlighting the dual-core processor and 3D capabilities. It then fights off bad guys and has some references to a certain electronic company named after a fruit. Check it out for yourselves after the break. [YouTube]

Well...no subtlety there, eh?

jcmyers79 says:

This looks like a fake commercial. It is missing all of the usual branding and the effects, all though cool, do not look genuine (aka officially Transformer).

Viper says:

I was referring to the shots at Apple.

sveilien says:

It's a very fake commercial. The CGI is video game quality at best and there is NO WAY Apple would allow use of their logo. It's obviously a very enthused (and creative) fan production.

That's a big fruit juicer! Great add even if its fake!

hmmm says:

Should call it the oPad or use a lower case L and call it the lPad.

The Ultimate Apple Crusher!!!!!

samurikuma says:

Yeah. Love it.

droidgurl11 says:

Loved it

storm14k says:

Thought it might have been kinda cheesy but crushing that Apple at the end makes up for all of it. LMAO

Treknologist says:

Loved it! Oh, and why would it need to be subtle? :)

I like the OptimusPad & love Transformers, but the ad is kinda corny.

Dark_Blu says:

Looks interesting. Specs? Price? WiFi only version? Not interested in a 3G Tablet and additional data plan.

inuchan says:

Wow the hint is strong in this video. Hope it is going to be cheaper than the Xoom

cmorty72#AC says:

Rather corny, but straight to the point (especially at the end).

tompro53 says:

Can you say lawsuit.

nttdemented says:

Yes this is definitely fan made. There is no WAY that add would fly with Paramount, Dreamworks, Hasbro, Apple, etc etc...

Justified says:

DreamWords, Padmount, Michael Boy. It's definitely fake...LOL

dabaum says:

Any ANDROID vs Any Apple... priceless!

I love how blog sites fall for these kind of things.

kinster02 says:

Nice, way better than that Xoom commercial.

That's pretty creative
