LG Debuts E-Note H1000B Tablet In South Korea

LG has introduced a Windows 7-based tablet, the E-Note H1000B, which is at least for now only available in South Korea. The device is powered by an Intel Atom processor (either a 1.1GHz Z510 or a 1.6Ghz Z530), 1GB RAM, 16GB SSD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and two USB ports.

But it is the huge 10.1-inch WSVGA capacitive touchscreen that will get heads turning. The fact that users can opt for Windows 7 Professional shows LG's intention to position the tablet as a business tool as well.

However we're not sure whether the pairing of Windows 7 and a Z510 processor is one that can work. Another dubious decision is that of adding a chin to the tablet (basically curving the bottom of the tablet away from the user).

One can expect the tablet to go on sale for around £500 in the UK - it sells for $850 in South Korean. We wouldn't be surprised if LG uses the same barebone - minus the processor - to power its next ARM/Android based Optimus tablet that's set to be released next year.
