LG to showcase the Tab-Book at MWC, a hybrid tablet/notebook device with Win 8 and LTE
LG has crafted a pretty compelling tablet-notebook combo, fittingly called Tab-Book, with a sliding keyboard mechanism, which is aimed to bridge the gap between slates and laptops. Equipped with a touchscreen of undisclosed size, it is also powered by a respectable Core i5 processor to run that Windows 8 full speed.

The screen is of the IPS variety, which would ensure better contrast and superior viewing angles than what you usually get with notebooks, yet when you push the Auto-Sliding button, the keyboard will emerge underneath for the avid touch-typist in you. As per Il-geun Kwon, Senior Vice President and Head of the LG Home Entertainment Company’s IT Business Unit:


No other specs like battery life or price are disclosed in the press release, but LG says we will have a chance to peruse it at the MWC Expo in just a few days, and after the launch in Korea this week, it will later be rolled out in "additional markets".

Asus already made a keyboard almost identical to this. I'm not knocking LG for copying, just glad to see other OEMs working in this direction.

After looking at this on youtube, it seems the "undisclosed" screen size is 11.6 inches.

What Lg did is just copy Sony Vaio Duo 13 and Apple. Please Vaio and Apple bring big charge from Lg. This is so rude.They dont even give a respect.
