LG announced a duo of new devices this morning, including a sliding tablet that incorporates a full keyboard, and a multitouch all-in-one desktop. Both devices run Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system, and they’ll be released in LG’s homeland of Korea on October 26 — the same day the software makes its worldwide debut.
The H160 sliding tablet looks like a pretty nifty piece of kit. It boasts an 11.6-inch IPS display, which slides up (pretty quickly!) at the push of a button to reveal a built-in keyboard. It’s compatible with LG’s Smart Touch Pen, which allows for “precision-required” work, according to LG.
The H160 weighs in at just over 2.3 pounds, and measures 15.9mm thick — largely thanks to that built-in keyboard. It includes full-size USB, HDMI, and microSD ports, and promises 10 hours of battery life in between charges. Unfortunately, those are the only specifications LG has offered us for this particular device so far.
As for the V325 all-in one, that boasts a 23-inch 1080p display, which is powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M graphics card. It packs an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 processor, and a built-in tuner that allows it to double up as a television when the computer’s not in use.
Both of these machines will be released in Korea on October 26. LG is remaining quiet about international availability, so for now we’ll just have to keep ours fingers crossed. I’m certainly hoping that the tablet will go global at some point.
