LG plans Android tablet: Slate slated for 2010

LG is planning an Android tablet -- what can an Android tablet do that would make you part with your hard-earned cash?

LG is planning an Android tablet computer. The Andy-powered iPad rival is slated to be with us by the end of this year.

LG hasn't revealed any details, so we're going to go ahead and wildly speculate. LG has already shown off the UX10, a Windows 7 slate with a 10-inch screen, 1.3-megapixel camera and HDMI output. The Android tablet will probably add 3G connectivity alongside Wi-Fi, and may well run Android 2.2, aka Froyo. It may also have lasers, who knows.

Froyo features include the option to turn your device into a Wi-Fi hotspot. Version 3.0 of Google's robotic operating system is also expected to arrive before the end of this year, but we doubt it'll be ready for the LG tablet.

In the same blog post -- translated from Korean -- LG also announced a new version of the Optimus Z SU950, a giant Android handset yet to make it over here. The new Optimus Z will have a whopping 97mm (3.8-inch) screen and shoot high-definition video.

Are you buying into this tablet mania? What can an Android tablet do that would make you part with your hard-earned sponduliks?
