LG P930 to be a new Android tablet. Or maybe a phone with a 1280 x 720 display?

Until now, LG has officially introduced only one Android tablet – the Optimus Pad. Known in the US as T-Mobile G-Slate, the Optimus Pad runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb and features an 8.9 inch screen with a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution.

Like all the other companies that entered the tablet market, LG is certainly not going to stop here, and it probably has more tablets in the making as we speak.

One of them may be the LG P930. The problem with this P930 is that we’re not really sure it’s a tablet. What we know for certain (from this XML file), is that it’s an Android device with a 1280 x 720 display, and GPRS/EDGE and HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity.

Now, 1280 x 720 is a resolution perfect for a tablet, not for a phone, right? Well, not necessarily. Hitachi has recently announced that it developed a 4.5 inch display for smartphones with this resolution. Update: Toshiba also has a 4-inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels.

Moreover, all of LG’s devices which have model numbers that start with P are smartphones: LG Optimus 2X P990, LG Optimus Black P970, LG Optimus 3D P920, LG Optimus One P500, LG Optimus Me P350. As for the Optimus Pad, its model number is V900 – so I assume LG’s future tablets will all have Vs in their names.

A Google search for LG P930 currently leads to no relevant results. No one heard of the device until now. Well, we just did. Unfortunately, we have no further details on the P930 for the moment, but I’m sure more info will be unveiled soon.

     P930 means it’s a smartphone because LG use ‘P’ code for smartphones while for tablet they use ‘V’ code, absolutely P930 maybe sit above P920 Optimus 3D :D
