KOREAN HARDWARE FIRM LG is readying two Windows 8 devices for an October release.
The devices are a tablet and an all-in-one PC, both of which aim to make the most of the Windows 8 touchscreen feature.
The tablet is called the H160 and has a slide-out keyboard, making us wonder whether we should call it a tablet or not. The tablet or laptop thing has an 11.6in screen and the keyboard slides out at the push of a button. LG calls this an "Auto-Sliding" mechanism. The tablet has a SD card slot, WiFi and an HDMI output port.
It is thin and light at 15.9mm thick and 1.05kg, and LG claims its battery lasts for about 10 hours.
Also up for release is the V325, an all-in-one PC television combo that is presumably aimed at living rooms. LG says that you can turn on the TV without booting up the PC.
The hardware doesn't slight the PC function, as the specifications show a decent enough machine. A Korean press release tells us that it has a strong stereoscopic 3D Nvidia Geforce GT640M graphics card and a third generation Intel Core I5 processor.
The 23in screen all-in-one PC TV is expected to be released, in Korea we assume, before the end of this month. µ
