Add one more to the list of ridiculous Android tablets. LG has revealed a variant of their Tab Book, a netbook/tablet hybrid that folds down into a tablet while you’re on the go and slides up to be a netbook when you need some hardcore typing action. This variant has the model number 11TA740, and shares the same specs as the Windows 8.1 version that came before it. Here’s what’s under the hood:

  • Size: 11.6 inches
  • Resolution: Full HD (1920 × 1080)
  • Size / Thickness: (mm) 286 x 192 / 16.7
  • Weight: (kg) 1.05
  • CPU: 4th generation Core i5 4200U (Turbo 2.6GHz, Cache 3MB)
  • Memory: 4GB (1 slot)
  • Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400
  • Storage: SSD 128GB
  • USB / HDMI: USB 3.0 (2 pc) / standard HDMI
  • Card slot: MicroSD
  • Color: Snow White
  • OS: Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean)

Ridiculous, no? The only thing concerning on that list is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean — you ought to get with the times, LG. Everything else looks absolutely nice, though, and we imagine you won’t find a device as powerful as this coming out of many other OEMs’ research and development offices.

Unfortunately LG’s press release (translated from Korea to English using the not-so-perfect Google Translate) doesn’t mention anything about pricing and availability, though we’ll certainly be hitting up our folks at LG to see if they have anything more to share. In the meantime grab a towel to catch all that saliva drooling out of your mouth and let us know if you’d be in for one should it ever make its way to your territory.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  2. Ridiculous, why?

    I think it is ridiculous that you’re calling this ridiculous. Lol

    1. Had the same question at first, but he does state the followinfg in the article, “Ridiculous, no? The only thing concerning on that list is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean”. I think that is what he was referring too.

    2. I’m sorry, it’s a personal dialect thing. I mean “ridiculous” in a very good way. :)

  3. I rather buy the new shield tablet, really

  4. I’d definitely be willing to scoop this up. I had the Asus Transformer and regretted not getting the Slider instead. Too bad that they never updated the Slider like they did the original TF.

  5. if it’s the same specs as a windows version wonder if it could be dual booted android/windows? (continues to impatiently wait for those to come)

  6. what is the windows version model ?
    The keyword look like thick. what is the thickness ?

  7. Why does android need such specs?

  8. This should be a CHROMEBOOK!!!

  9. I’ve got to be honest. When I saw that LG wasn’t replacing their defective watch (where pin corrosion has prevented them from charging), I immediately decided not to buy any of their products.
