LG Windows 7 tablet becomes a reality

With the LG Optimus tablet being postponed until Honeycomb gets official, the news that the Korean electronics giant has officially unleashed a different flavoured tab, with a Windows 7 twang, comes as a bit of a shock (although it had turned up at the FCC a few weeks back).

The LG E-Note H1000B (catchy eh?) has been officially announced in Korea, where it is going to go on sale soon, priced at 961,000 won (about £530).

The 10.1-inch tablet comes with either an Intel Atom Z510 (1.1GHz) or a Z530 (1.6GHz) CPU, backed up by 1GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD - which is expandable via the SD memory card slot.

It comes with Windows 7 Starter loaded onto it, which you can choose to upgrade to W7 Professional, and connectivity is handled by Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, optional WiMax and two USB ports.

It measures in at 278.5 x 180.5 x 14.5mm and weighs 850g.

It's hardly a game changing Windows 7 tablet - the specs aren't too dissimilar from what we've seen already from the likes of Tegatech, and the E-Note H1000B is hardly likely to kick up the same sort of excitement as an LG Android release would.

Roll on Honeycomb we say...
