LG Confirms Release of New Tablet in Early 2011; Device to Tot Honeycomb (Android 3.0)

Looks like the next year will begin with the advent of the tablet PCs that are going to take Apple’s iPad by storm. LG has confirmed the release of its Optimus tablet in the first quarter of 2011 in South Korea as well as other parts of the world. The unveiling of the device will be accompanied with that of Honeycomb (Android 3.0), Google’s next Android-based operating system for tablet PCs.

The LG Pad will reportedly be an 8.9 inch touchscreen display tablet powered by the Android Honeycomb OS and NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual Core Processor.

Working hard to accommodate the needs and wants of European and North American consumers LG has positioned its tablet PC in between its rivals, the iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab. It has paid attention to the size of the tablet as it feels that this would be beneficial for the users and would provide them with an in-between size alternative.

However, LG does realize that this would not be the only selling factor for their tablet PC. Since the LG Pad has been manufactured to combine the best and worst features of the iPad and Galaxy Tab, it will face stiff competition in the tablet market against these two rivals.

Moving away from the central focus on e-books, movies, music and the internet functions, LG claims that the tablet PC will offer many ‘firsts’ through more diverse contents based on powerful functions.

Earlier tabbed as the Optimus Pad, there is still a lot to be learnt in terms of the features and functions of this tablet PC. There is expected to be another official announcement towards the end of this year that is likely to give more insight on the product.
