LG announces tablet/notebook hybrid called Tab-Book
LG has announced that they will be showcasing their brand new Tab-Book at the Mobile World Congress next week, in Barcelona. The Tab-Book is essentially a notebook hybrid, but could also be described as a tablet with a slide-out keyboard.
The company’s short press-release pretty much qualifies as a “teaser” at this point, with a lot of information missing. Battery life, exact processor model number, price and worldwide availability are all unknown. Unfortunately there are no pictures showing exactly how the hinge is propping up the screen either. However it looks like the Tab-Book has only one fixed angle position in regards to the keyboard.
The good news is that the Tab-Book is a Surface Pro competitor. It runs on a full blown version of Windows 8 and an unspecified Intel Core i5 processor. The hybrid also features a 5-point multi-touch IPS display and claims a 178-degree viewing angle. And the twist is that it also comes with LTE connectivity. LG is obviously trying to get the best out of both productivity and mobility, in one neat package.
The Tab-Book goes on sale this week in Korea, while additional market availability will be announced at a later date.
