LG working on Google Android tablet

Slate PC could hit shops by end of 2010

LG is working on a tablet PC that will run Google Android.

While the company, which is the second-largest electronics firm in South Korea, didn't offer any pricing or specification details, it did say the tablet would be made available before the end of the year.

It is thought the tablet will be LG's assault on Apple's iPad, which has proved extremely successful, selling three million devices in the three months since it was officially launched.

Could LG's forthcoming Android tablet rival Apple's iPad?

LG is already working on a tablet PC that runs Microsoft Windows. The 10in UX10 features Windows 7 as well as a 1.3MP camera and HDMI port.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
