LG Electronics is entering the competitive regional Tablet PC market with a new model unveiled for the first time in the Middle East at Gitex today. The tablet offers a 40GB hard drive, 12.1" XGA screen, keyboard, WACOM pen solution and battery life of 5.41 hours.

"Our Tablet is lighter, faster and more efficient than most competitive offerings and complements our notebook and desktop range," explains PC Choi, president, LG Electronics Gulf FZE.

Weighing in at 3.79lbs, this lightweight computing device runs on Intel's Banias 1.6GHz chip, powered by 256Mb RAM and equipped with Bluetooth connectivity. Built on the principle of a single spindle, the screen rotates 180 degrees and folds back on top of the keyboard.

"Whilst the Tablet PC market is still quite young in the Middle East, we believe the LG product will satisfy concerns over battery life and wireless connectivity," adds Choi. "LG Electronics has developed batteries that are specifically designed for Centrino-based tablets."
