LG outs the Tab Book Duo: light Windows 8 convertible with 11 hours of battery life
LG Tab Book Duo
LG just announced one fine Windows convertible out of the blue, the Tab Book Duo, entering the new era of thin and light Windows computers that have a battery life rivaling or surpassing iOS and Android slates. The Tab Book Duo consists of two components (duh) - a 10" screen part with undisclosed resolution, but disclosed kickstand, and a Bluetooth keyboard that can connect to your Tab Book and your smartphone at once, for instance. The processor part that makes the touted 11 hours of battery life possible remains a mystery, as LG just says a quad-core Intel processor, but with this kind of endurance from a thin and light design, we'd but on the fanless Core M edition.
The weight of the tablet part of the Duo is just 530g, and that's with a USB 3.0 port, as well as a microHDMI one on board. With the keyboard tacked on, the Tab Book Duo stays under two pounds, for 792g of weight. The Windows 8.1 convertible will cost the equivalent of $670, is available today, and whoever buys it by next Monday, will receive a Microsoft wireless mouse thrown in for free, too.
