A new report out of South Korea Wednesday sheds some light on LG’s upcoming virgin tablet offering. According to the report, LG is preparing to launch its first Android tablet in the first quarter next year. The “LG Pad”, as it may be called, will purportedly feature a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, an 8.9-inch touchscreen display and the Android Honeycomb operating system. A senior official at LG is quoted as saying, “LG Electronics decided to launch a new tablet PC, so-called LG Pad, both in the domestic and overseas markets in the first quarter of the next year when Google unveils Honeycomb, tablet PC-version Android OS.” The official goes on to say, “While the existing tablet PCs focus on e-book, movie, music and the Internet functions, LG’s new tablet PC is jumping into the market with more diverse contents based on powerful functions.” Sounds good to us, though LG hasn’t confirmed any details at this point.
