LG has demoed a new tablet device called the UX10 which appears to be a bog standard mobile internet device based around the usual Wintel platform, that is the equivalent of having a netbook without a keyboard.
Specification reportedly includes an Intel Atom Z530 processor which runs at 1.66GHz, a 10.1-inch capacitive LED touchscreen display with a screen resolution of 1024x600 pixels, 1GB RAM, 120GB HDD, a 1.3-megapixel camera, WiFi, support for HDMI, SD card reader and Windows 7 Home Premium as OS.
There's also - apparently - a 7200mAh battery stuck in there which will add to the weight and bulkiness of the device but also make us fear for the worse when it comes to battery life. Some reports say that its weight should be a smidgen under 900g.
How will it compare to the iPad or the Asus Eee Pad remains to be seen. One thing is for certain, tablet computers are just about to become as bland and as unimpressive as netbooks have become over the last few years.
The prototype at Computex was a working one which means that production and availability shouldn't be far of. We haven't heard of any pricing information yet.
