With CES just days away, we are now wondering if we will get a chance to look at anything but tablets. News continues to filter through about more and more manufacturers who are going to bring their latest slates to Vegas.
The latest news comes from insider sources in LG’s home territory of South Korea where the Korean Times reports that LG will be bringing an 8.9in tablet running Android 3.0 (aka Honeycomb) to Vegas. Obviously we have no concrete evidence of this being a viable device but considering we were looking forward to an LG Android tablet by the end of this year, it is decidedly possible.
LG announced its Windows-powered E-Note in November and at the time, a Q4 release of an Android device was rumoured. However the delay could be down to LG wanting to wait for the more tablet-friendly Honeycomb platform. We have briefly seen Honeycomb running on a Motorola tablet – possibly call the the Everest – but besides that little is known about Honeycomb. No doubt a lot more will be known when we head to Vegas next week.
Whatever the situation with Honeycomb, it is almost certain that LG will get on the tablet bandwagon in time for CES and when they do unveil the tablet in Vegas we will be on hand to report back first hand.
