Carphone Warehouse has priced the LG Optimus Pad, expected to go on sale in the UK very shortly at £799.

The price, listed on the retailers website, matches previous reports that the 3D capable tablet would be expensive. In Europe the devices has been rumoured to cost between 800 and 1000 Euro however in the US the Optimus Pad, which goes by the name the G-Slate only costs $529.99.

It means that the tablet will cost more than the iPad 2 and the Motorola Xoom.

Carphone Warehouse is listing the tablet as “In stock” however pressing on the order button delivers an error message.

We have contacted Carphone Warehouse and are awaiting a reply as to whether or not the listing is a mistake, or whether it really is that expensive.

Will you buy it for that much? Let us know in the comments below
