LG announce Windows 8 tablet and PCs

10

imageNot to be left behind by Samsung, LG announced their own range of Windows 8 products.

They announced two Windows 8  x86 PCs, the H160 sliding tablet and V325 all-in-one.

The sliding tablet has a built-in keyboard that’s revealed by an "auto sliding" 11.6 inch IPS screen, which pops open at the press of a button and is compatible with LG’s Smart touch pen.

The H160 weights 2.3 pounds, is 15.9 mm thick and has full-sized USB and HDMI ports, and supports microSD expansion, and also offers 10 hours battery life, presumably from the Atom processor.

The V325 all-in-one features has a 23-inch 1080p multitouch display, Ivy Bridge Core i5 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M graphics card, and TV tuner, which works when the PC is off.

Both machines will be released in Korea on October 26th. International availability has not been announced yet.

    The sliding mechanism does not look very durable :/

    Whilst not everyone can garner excitement for every product release, all I can say is…”Thank God we aren’t relying on LG to promulgate the use of Windows 8!”

      yeah, I feel sorry for Korea if this is their primary choice for getting Windows 8.

    The designs are not very appealing to me compared to the other brands, not sure how bad or good LG is on computers though

    El o El this thing is atrocious i’m surprised hardware is still made like this I think LG just took the title of cheap products from Acer.

    The all in one sounds pretty solid with the touch screen and a tv tuner that works when the machine is off. But the convertible thing is pretty ugly and doesn’t look to have options of viewing angle which is a major downer imo

    I’m getting a little worried here not seeing much coming from OEMS Microsoft doing surface and hopefully a high end WP8 device that is NOT EXCLUSIVE! but the only thing I’m seeing that is decent in tablets is the surface the ATIV s is nice as well. but in the mobile world the only really nice one is exclusive only to AT&T having Nokia on board is great but even apple knew exclusive doesn’t do much or reach as many folks. I’m somewhat torn on upgrading my company to WIN8 that’s 40+ machines and 30+ mobile devices right now we are fragmented with lumia 710 that no one likes because of the size and limited space being an 8 most of my people are using there own mobiles which I don’t like.I keep getting static that we should bring everything over to iPhone..very frustrating…

    yeah that hinge makes me cringe.

    At least they still make decent tvs, the color saturation and longevity of the tv i have is pretty beastly.
