LG introduces a powerful tablet-notebook hybrid with a powerful Intel i5 processor and 4GB of RAM

LG Tab Book

LG has just shown off its latest tablet/notebook hybrid which is also part of its popular Tab Book series. The device has a keyboard embedded beneath the display which can be popped up as you can see from the image above. We’ve seen a few devices like these, including the most recent Tab Book from LG which was running Windows 8.1, so most of the design and hardware seen here is identical.

As for the specs, the Tab Book packs an Intel Core i5 4200U CPU clocked at 2.6 GHz and the Intel HD Graphics 4400 GPU. This is PC level hardware, which makes it the most powerful Android tablet to break cover.

Other features of the Tab Book include  a 11.6 inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, two USB 3.0 ports, one standard HDMI port and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. LG has also been wise enough to add a microSD card slot for people willing to add more storage on the device. So considering the hardware on offer, LG is touting this more as a notebook replacement than merely an Android media device. The device weighs over 1 Kg (2.2 lbs) due to the embedded keyboard, which could hinder portability to some extent.

We’re guessing the tablet will be available on a global scale as well, although for the time being it has only been announced in South Korea. Pricing details haven’t been mentioned yet, but don’t expect it to go easy on your wallets given the hardware on offer.
