LG Android tablet coming this year

  • Many companies have speculated about creating a digital media tablet using Google's Android operating system, but LG could be one of the first to actually bring one to the retail market. LG confirmed today, according to a Wall Street Journal report, that in addition to working on a new tablet computer that will run on a modified version of Windows 7, it is also creating one of the country's first Android tablets.

    The tablet market, once a niche, widely disregarded segment of the consumer electronics industry, has been catapulted to the forefront with the launch of Apple's iPad. The iPad has sold more than 3 million units within just a couple months.

    Competing devices haven't really surfaced yet, and some high-profile projects have even been canceled, but there are bound to be some competitors that will pop up over the next several months.

    LG did not confirm a price or any technical specs for the Android tablet, but said it should be available for purchase by the end of the year.
