LG Showcases Tab-book Windows 8 Tablet


Microsoft’s Windows 8 is also playing a vital role in the MWC event in Barcelona. Among the several Windows 8 running tablets and PCs, one that seemed to stand out quite a lot was LG’s tab-book Z160 which is a Windows 8 running PC with a slide out keyboard.

It also has a beefy Intel iCore i5 processor which promises great performance. Here are the full specs:

  • Microsoft Windows 8
  • 11.6 inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels
  • Capacitive touchscreen with 5-point touch sensivity
  • 19.4mm thick
  • Weight: 1.25kg
  • Sliding qwerty keyboard
  • 1.8Ghz Intel Core i5 processor (turbo boost up to 2.7Ghz)
  • 4GB RAM and 120GB SSD
  • microSD card slot, HDMI output, USB 3.0
  • 1.3mp front-facing camera
  • battery lasts 6 hours on continuous usage

LG hasn’t told when its Tab-book will be released worldwide or what will be its price but don’t expect it to be cheap. After all, its the ultrabooks, not the tablets it is competiting against.
