LG has been trying to find some solid footing in the mobile industry amongst other giants, and many criticized it for missing out a critical early lead in the tablet race. However, LG made it clear early on that Android 2.2, as Google itself said, was not primed for tablet use. It makes sense, and to this day we’ve only seen one relatively successful Android tablet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
LG said it would wait until the Honeycomb version of Android before it would jump into the tablet market, and with a number of Honeycomb tablets coming during CES – especially the “iPad killers” coming from Motorola – it’s perfect timing for LG to do its thing.
According to Korea Times, LG will produce an 8.9-inch Honeycomb/Android 3.0 tablet that will be unveiled at CES next week. There aren’t too many more details on what the tablet will feature, but it will presumably be comparable to what will be out in the market. Or at least we should hope so if LG wants a fighting chance against Motorola and Samsung.
