LG is officially jumping in the tablet ring to join the Apple iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab by announcing they’ll be releasing the LG Pad. This has an 8.9-inch display, a Tegra 2 Dual Core Processor and will run off the Android OS Honeycomb. Target release date is for Q1 of 2011.
An LG spokesperson stated that “LG Electronics decided to launch a new tablet PC, so-called LG Pad, both in the domestic and overseas markets in the first quarter of the next year when Google unveils Honeycomb, tablet PC-version Android OS… While the existing tablet PCs focus on e-book, movie, music and the Internet functions, LG’s new tablet PC is jumping into the market with more diverse contents based on powerful functions”.
LG is in every technology market possible… so what are these more powerful functions? 3D technology coming to the LG Pad? TV? Vacuum? LG Also stated that the 8.9-inch display is what will make the Pad a success or failure as it comes right in between the 9.7-inch iPad display and the Galaxy Tab’s 7-inch display.
