Update 2: Fudzilla hears the Optimus Pad will go for $700 – $800 in the US with 32GB of RAM (as the G-Slate) and the same in euros over in Europe with VAT included.

Update: Pricing! If you’re not saving that $1,200 for the Motorola Xoom, then you can buy the LG Optimus Pad and still have enough left for the week’s groceries. Sound like a bargain? It’s been spotted for 999 euros in Germany, or about $1,075 after conversions (inc. VAT). via Engadget
