8.9 inch LG Pad tablet with Android Honeycomb arriving early next year?
It looks like LG’s first Android tablet won’t run Gingerbread, as rumored not long ago.
A senior official from LG told MK News that the company’s tablet, likely called LG Pad, will be launched around the world (including Europe and North America) in the first quarter of 2011 with Android Honeycomb on-board.
The tablet should feature an 8.9 inch touchscreen display (almost like Apple’s iPad, which has a 9.7 inch display) and a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.
“While the existing tablet PCs focus on e-book, movie, music and the Internet functions, LG’s new tablet PC is jumping into the market with more diverse contents based on powerful functions,” said the LG official.
Of course, launching a Honeycomb tablet depends, first of all, on Google and the date it will manage to release this version of Android. Google has to introduce Android Gingerbead first – we still don’t know when exactly this will happen, despite the fact that a giant Gingerbread man has arrived at Googleplex two weeks ago.
