LG has finally released the E-Note H1000B
Windows 7 tablet in Korea but its specs and price are not very competitive to rivals' offerings.
The 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 pixel capacitive screen E-Note H1000B runs Windows 7 Starter (option of Windows 7 Professional is also available) and it is powered by either an 1.6GHz Atom Z530 or an 1.1GHz Intel Atom Z510 microprocessor. It is equipped with a 16GB SSD and 1GB of memory.
The 14.5-mm thick / 850-gram device packs 2x USB 2.0 jacks an SD card reader and 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 radios when sold for 961,000 Korean won (about $851).
The tablet is powered by just a 4-cell battery.
This happens to be the second Windows 7 based tablet after HP Slate 500 to join the tablet market that already has iPad, PlayBook and Galaxy Tab. However, the 4-cell battery packed with the tablet doesn't seem to promise a long battery life like the netbooks. Even the price of the tablet is high compared to Apple's iPad and Samsung's Galaxy Tab.
