LG launches E-Note Windows 7 tablet in Korea
LG is remarkably slow and under-developed when it comes to outing new computer products as it seems. But finally, the Korean major has now brought out a new product, a Windows 7 tablet named the E-Note H1000B. The ultraportable has been launched in Korea and its US launch is yet to be announced, although some reports suggest that the device was seen on the FCC site some time ago thus indicating a US launch very soon.
The LG E-Note H1000B tablet PC uses a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel resistive touchscreen display and is powered by the 1.1GHz Intel Atom Z510 or 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU. Also under the hood are 1GB of memory and a 16GB solid state disk. 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, 2 USB ports and an SDHC card slot are standard and you also have the option to include a WiMAX connectivity module. Also, the tablet will run the Windows 7 Starter Edition OS. A removable 4 cell battery does duty on the E-Note tablet which weighs about 1.9 pounds.
The LG E-Note H1000B is selling in Korea for equivalent of around $850 for the WiMax enabled model and is well priced for its specs. Although it is expected to cost less than that in the US – we are not sure how the Korean company plans to create a dedicated following by bringing out such an ordinary machine.
