We all know that 2010 was the year of the e-reader and 2011 is set to be the year tablet Computers really hit their stride. 2010 has seen a few quality offerings in the tablet department by Samsung and Apple. Most others lack in hardware or Android Market support. However, 2011 sees LG gearing up for a higher end tablet with a 8.9 inch screen.
The Korea Times is reporting that LG initially was going to release a new tablet this year, but decided to wait on the more tablet friendly operating system, Honeycomb.
LG is the smaller of the big Korean companies and experienced a miserable 2010. It failed to capitalize on the high end smartphone market and made no noise at all in the tablet or e-reader arena.
Other companies looking to unveil their tablets at CES include Microsoft (which is planning a slew of Windows-based devices built by manufacturing partners like Samsung and Dell), Hewlett Packard, and Motorola.
