LG rolls out multiple Android devices
LG Electronics has showed renewed support of the Google Android operating system, announcing several new smartphones and tablets that will be powered by the Android OS.
Companies have thought about developing Android tablets, but LG could be one of the first to release a product to market. If so, the South Korean manufacturer has a chance to not only beat its rivals to market, but also set the bar higher than what is expected by some analysts. LG, which trails Samsung in South Korea electronics, hopes its Android tablet will be able to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet PC.
LG hasn’t released hardware specifications or pricing information for the Android tablet.
It’s interesting to see the tablet market move from the Apple iPad and Microsoft Windows 7 systems towards Android. LG recently showed off a Windows 7 tablet, but products aimed for the open source community were also expected.
I look forward to hearing more about this new Android tablet from LG. I still own several netbooks and haven’t purchased a tablet, but I think there are plenty of consumers anxiously waiting to see how tablets develop.
This is a larger effort by LG as part of the company’s ‘Optimus Series’ project aimed at consumer products for smartphones, tablets and notebooks.
“The LG Optimus Series is aimed at challenging the notion that one device can meet the needs of many,” said Dr. Skott Ahn, LG President and CEO of Mobile Communications, said in a statement. “At LG, we believe in providing people with many different choices because our customers are not all alike. We want to provide devices that suit all needs and simplify people’s lives.”
LG will also include the Optimus One and Optimus Chic Android smartphones in the ‘Optimus Series’ project. The Optimus One uses Google software and the Optimus Chic is powered by Froyo (Android 2.2).
