LG Confirms Launch Of Android Tablet For Q4

The other Korean Electronics Behemoth, LG, has officially confirmed the release of an Android based tablet computer as it mentioned its existence in a press release before stating that it will be based on the Optimus brand and will come in the fourth quarter of 2010.

LG has not announced any details regarding the device but we expect it to follow the same design as the LG Optimus Z which the chaebol launched yesterday with a more rectangular finish (think iPhone 4 with even less curves).

The tablet, we suspect, will be a bigger version of the handset, possibly with a 7-inch screen capable of displaying 800x480 pixels, with a 5-megapixel camera, a 1GHz Cortex A8-based processor, some sort of internal memory, Dolby Mobile, DiVX compatibility, Wi-Fi and 3G.

If as expected the tablet is powered by Android OS 3.0 (remember, it is coming in Q4), then it is likely to boost 512MB RAM and a screen size of 1280x760, making it a proper HD ready device.

LG could potentially bundle it with its own Drag and Shake functionality and the ability to sync the phone with computers via LG's Air Sync. More interestingly, the tablet may well come with a mobile TV tuner.
