LG prepping Honeycomb tablet for CES?
LG really does seem on top of its game right now. First it announces the first ever dual-core Android smartphone – the Optimus 2X – and earlier this week followed up by promising the largest ever LED 3D telly for next week’s CES show in Las Vegas.
Now, if Korea Times is to be believed, the company could be about to unwrap an even bigger surprise at CES – a bright and shiny new tablet running Android Honeycomb.
At 8.9in across, the as-yet-unnamed slate falls right in between the iPad and Galaxy Tab, and like the Optimus 2X is believed to run the dual-core Tegra 2 processor.
But more interesting is the likely presence of Android Honeycomb. It’s still not certain that Honeycomb will officially be version 3.0 of Google’s mobile OS, or simply an incremental version 2.4 update – the latter seems more likely considering how recently Android 2.3 Gingerbread was pulled from the oven – but we’re looking forward to it either way.
And with Motorola also likely to debut a tablet running the next version of Android, it seems competition for the iPad is about to hot up in a serious way.
