CES 2013 | LG intros the Tab-Book H160 and Tab-Book Ultra Z160 sliders
LG has unveiled a new line of convertible tablets as part of the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The two sliders that are currently representing the Tab-Book Series are called H160 and Ultra Z160 with the latter, as the name suggests, featuring more Ultrabook-like specs. As of now, there is unfortunately still no word on when these will become commercially available in Europe/North America or how much will they set you back.
The Tab-Book H160 sports an 11.6-inch capacitive multi-touch (5 points) touchscreen display of HD native resolution, a Solid-State Drive with a storage capacity of 64GB and 2GB of internal RAM. Furthermore, it packs an Intel Atom Z2760 (Clover Trail) System-On-Chip that incorporates two physical cores operating at 1.8GHz and an integrated graphics controller clocked at 533MHz.
The 0.6-inch thick tablet offers USB and HDMI connectivity, a microSD card reader slot, Wireless LAN and Bluetooth adapters. Apparently, the H160 weighs 1.05kg with the built-in battery that lasts for around 12.5 hours on a single charge.
LG’s higher end Tab-Book Ultra Z160 slider comes with an 11.6-inch 720p IPS multi-touch panel and is driven by a speedier, third-generation (Ivy Bridge) Intel Core i5 central processing unit. Moreover, it houses 8GB of RAM and a larger 160GB SSD. Reportedly, the ultra-portable device measures 19.4mm at its thickest point, weighs 1.23kg and is equipped with HDMI and USB 3.0 ports.
Both hybrid notebooks are based on a Windows 8 operating system.
