LG to jump on Android tablet bandwagon

07-07-2010 09:59 BJT Special Report:

BEIJING, July 7(Xinhuanet)--Like every other hardware vendor, LG has announced plans to join the tablet PC revolution. It seems that LG might be following in HP’s footsteps, by dropping the Windows 7 tablet prototype it has been promoting in favor of a tablet built on a mobile OS platform.

LG has revealed its intentions to build a tablet PC on the Android mobile OS. The Apple iPad competitor will run Android 2.2 and will be available by the end of 2010.

It was only a month ago at Computex that LG showed off a prototype* of the UX10 tablet. The 10.1 inch touchscreen tablet runs on an Atom Z530 processor, and has 1Gb of RAM. Unlike the Apple iPad, the LG UX10 sports a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, SD memory card slot, and HDMI output.

There is a culture clash in trying to define the emerging generation of tablets. While PC purists want a touchscreen device that basically crams a traditional desktop into a tablet form factor, Apple has reinvented the tablet as a media consumption and mobile computing platform — more of a hybrid between the desktop and smartphone platforms.
