LG Tab Book with 11.6-inch display, Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean officially announced
LG has come up with a new iteration of its Windows based Tab Book tablet and this latest variant runs on Android. This variant of the Tab Book is almost similar to its Windows counterpart that was announced at the CES 2014. The major difference is that this version uses a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor clocked at 2.6GHz and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
Otherwise, the Tab Book houses a similar sliding keyboard under the 11.6-inch Full HD IPS display, a large 128GB of SSD memory and 4GB of RAM for efficient multi-tasking. Furthermore, there is integrated Intel 4400 HD graphics unit, 2x USB 3.0 and HDMI port that make the tablet-notebook hybrid device a capable one.
It is stated that the Tab Book will be launched in the domestic market – South Korea initially. While there is no clear reason on why this Tab Book is based on Android, but it is believed to be an attempt to save huge sum of money required to buy the license from Microsoft for the Windows platform. The Tab Book is 16.7mm thick and weights 1.05 kg.
The retail pricing of the device remains unannounced and it will be revealed during the final release of the device. Also, it is claimed that LG will be allowing the customers to sideload Windows alongside Android by paying an additional fee. Moreover, the global roll out the Tab Book is also unknown and there is no official word regarding the same.
