LG Tab Book unveiled, it’s an 11.6-inch Intel powered Android convertible

LG has just unveiled a new Android convertible netbook dubbed LG Tab Book. The LG Tab Book features specs identical to the Tab Book 2, which was unveiled at CES and came with Windows 8.1 on-board. The device even looks identical and the Windows capacitive button on the front has been replaced by an Android Home button.


The LG Tab Book  (11TA740-GA50K) features an 11.6-inch Full HD (1920x1080p) display and it’s powered by Intel’s 4th gen Core i5 processor 4200U clocked at 2.6 GHz with Intel HD Graphics 4400 and 4 GB RAM. There’s 128 GB solid state drive (SSD) along with a microSD card slot.

Sadly, the device comes with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It comes with a reader mode, which reduces the brightness of the display aptly for better reading pleasure. The convertible measures 286 x 192 x 16.7mm and it’s quite hefty at 1.05 kgs. The device also features a slider keyboard. LG hasn’t revealed the battery capacity yet. On the connectivity front, the device comes with two USB 3.0 slots and a standard HDMI port.

LG hasn’t revealed the pricing of the device but it’s expected to hit the Korean market soon. There’s no word on when (and if) the device will ever come to the global market.
