LG To Reveal 2nd Gen Tab-Book 2 And Ultra 2 Windows 8 Touch Devices At CES

LG Tab Book 2

LG recently revealed that they will be revealing two new Windows 8 devices at CES. One will be the LG Ultra PC, a 13-inch Full HD Windows 8.1 Ultrabook that will weigh just 980g. And the second device will be LG Tab-Book2, a 11.6-inch Full HD IPS display Windows 8.1 touch slider.

LG Ultra PC—Lighter for More Mobility

The LG Ultra PC model 13Z940 weighs less than 1kg and sports a clean, minimalist design. LG’s streamlined model offers improved processing, excellent graphics performance and extended battery life thanks to the Haswell Intel® Core™ i5 processor. The LG Ultra PCalso provides instantaneous booting with its solid-state drive (128GB or 256GB) for quick access and greater user convenience.

The 13Z940 Ultra PC has a Full HD 13.3-inch IPS display that incorporates the company’s Super Narrow Bezel design for an industry-leading 4.4mm thin bezels. The LG Ultra PC measures only 13.6mm at its thickest point and weighs in at a very travel-friendly 980g. The Ultra PC features Reader Mode, allowing the user to alter the background of any onscreen image to resemble paper, reducing eye-strain and energy consumption.

LG Tab-Book2 —Redefining ConvenienceOn the Go

The latest Tab-Book 2 models build on the success of LG’s original Tab-Book, which made its first appearance at CES 2013. Running Windows 8.1, both new models in the Tab-Book series are optimized for 10-point touch control and offer slide-out QWERTY keyboards hidden under the11.6-inch touchscreen. With a press of a button on the side of the unit, the keyboard glides smoothly out from beneath the display for immediate action.

The flagship model 11T740 Tab-Book 2 is only 16.7mm thin, making it a superb solution for consumers wanting greater portability without sacrificing features. Tipping the scales at a just 1.05kg, this unique device incorporates an 11.6-inch Full HD IPS display for a maximum brightness of 400nit lumens for easy viewing outdoors. Perfectly suitable for both on-the-go entertainment and work, the model 11T740 Tab-Book 2 implements a fourth generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor to deliver outstanding performance and a seamless user experience. Model 11T740’s little sister, model 11T540 Tab-Book 2, is even lighter at only 930g with a thickness of just 13.7mm.

    “The latest Tab-Book 2 models build on the success of LG’s original Tab-Book..”

    Whah!? I may not have an encyclopaedic knowledge of all new Win 8 PC releases, but I’m fairly certain I would have heard of a successful LG device? (Or did the success occur on an alternative universe?)

    • Tips_y

      The word “success” is probably relative to LG’s own experience with tablets both W8 and Android, and not on the total number of tablets produced by all OEMs. Perhaps the original Tab-Book sold enough units to have made some modest amount for LG. It may even have been their top-selling tablet.

      • Bugbog

        Have they even released any Win 8 tablet? (Apart from this CES 2013 Tab Book 1?)

        • Tips_y

          Yes, they have. But they released the Tab-Book in only a few selected markets. Their Android tablets are not roaring sellers either so their use of the word “success” indicates the Tab-Book did better or equal to their best selling Android tablet. But whatever that might be, I’m not interested in any LG W8/WP8 offering LOL! But as they say, “The more the merrier”.

          • Tips_y

            Oh and by the way, LG has done their fair share of dissing W8 and WP8 in the past so I look at all these leaks/rumors coming from LG as another good indication that W8 and WP8 are picking-up market share. They were very emphatic about the failure of W8/WP8, but all of a sudden we hear rumors of LG developing a WP8.1 device, and now this Tab-Book II. I look forward to 2014 as an exciting year for the platform!

            They only have one Android “tablet” that was released a few months ago, it was their first one tablet in like 2-3 years.
