Welcome to another Good E-Reader Computex Exclusive! We made our way down to the LG Booth at this year’s Computex Computer trade show, and it was locked down tight! People who wanted some hands on time with the device were limited to just two or three minutes before they gave you the boot.
LG is making waves into the Slate and Tablet market with an late prototype called the LG UX10 Tablet. It featured a 10.1 inch screen, an Intel Atom Z530 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing webcam, an SD card slot, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 7200mAh battery and a micro-HDMI output. It also had HD Audio built in and weighed only 850 G, it was equipped with a multi capacitive touch screen, but it was not working when we took a look at it.
Although the Microsoft booth representatives did not give a definitive price or release date, due to the prototype we saw, it looked like it could be viable around the end of the year, or early 2011.
Our experience, is when they limit your hands on time with gadgets, they are often prone to crash or otherwise give people negative things to say, such as Acers habitual crashing of the their new Tablet they showed off at the press release party yesterday.
We will be covering Computex for the next 4 days! Keep checking back for the latest Tablet PC News
