LG is getting into the Android tablet game with their own offering by the end of 2010
The world's number three handset maker isn't looking to sit pretty as their closest rival, Samsung, announced that they would be getting into the tablet game with their beefed up version of the Samsung Galaxy S – the Android tablet Samsung Tab. As we get closer to the end of the year, it'll be interesting to see what kind of tablet offering LG will have in store for all of us. Although there is very little specifics regarding their Android tablet, it's rumored to be slightly ahead of the curve versus some of the current available offerings on the market right now. At the same time, the Korean based company is also planning on presenting a new version of the Optimus Z, the SU950, which will be packing Android 2.2. Since current owners of the handset might feel somewhat blindsided by this, they will probably be ecstatic knowing that an upgrade for Froyo are in the pipelines for the fourth quarter. Things are looking quite peppy already for LG as we near the holiday season – now more than ever seeing that they're intent on joining all the Android tablet fun.

Indeed. I hate to be an LG hater but seriously, they haven't made a decent phone since the Voyager and that was because of the standards back then. Really they haven't done much different since. So why would anyone want a tablet from them?

Does anyone really want these tablets? I just don't see a point in them. What can this really do that any DROID phone can't? Plus these tablets aren't pocketable like a phone and as far as i know require another bill. They're pointless. And not just because we are in a recession!

I see the tablet PC / iMaxi etc... etc... as marking an evolution of the laptop, it is definately not a replacement and who needs an extra device, I was glad to see the all in one smart phones because they had a camera, gps, I could use them as calculator and I haven't worn a watch for years now and many other uses.
