CES 2011 Preview: Tablet, tablets everywhere
Tablets will be a main focus of the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, with several companies showing off their answer to the iPad.
According to TechRadar, the Korea Times has heard from industry sources in Korea that LG will launch a new Android tablet at CES 2011 and it will be running Honeycomb/Android 3.0 at CES 2011. It will have an 8.9-inch screen.
According to the sources, LG is attempting to keep up with neighbors at Samsung, who are also rumored to be releasing a second version of their Galaxy Tab 2.
Asus made some waves this week with its pre-CES teases of its Eee Pads, a hinged tablet, with a QWERTY keyboard and a traditional one. The company recently leaked shots of the tablets to Gizmodo and Slashgear. PCMag suspects that two of the rumored Eee Pad tablets will be Android-based, though not running Honeycomb.
MSI also gave a sneak peek at its tablet, the WindPad 100W, in Taipei. NetbookNews.com wrote it was a little disappointed in the latest look at the tablet, saying not much had changed since the last glimpse they had of the tablet in June. The Web site says the 10-inch tablet will have an angled camera as well as a front-facing camera, HDMI, 4 in 1 card reader, SIM card slot, 2 x USB 2.0 and 32GB SSD.
