LG’s H160 is a tablet-laptop hybrid with a similar form factor to that of Sony’s VAIO Duo 11. Promising a battery life of 10 hours and a thickness of 15.9mm (built-in keyboard included), its sliding function is operated via an auto-slide button. The 11.6in display is an IPS panel and the hybrid is said to have HDMI, USB outputs and a micro SD card slot.
