LG Looks to Release Android Tablet in Third Quarter

We're going to be up to our eyeballs in tablets this holiday shopping season if every company who promises to release a slate in 2010 comes through. That's potentially bad news for Apple, and maybe great news for LG, the latest electronics maker to announce plans to release a tablet before the end of the year.

Unfortunately for us, that's all LG announced. The hardware remains a mystery, as does the projected price point, or even where exactly LG plans to release its upcoming tablet. All we know is that its coming built around Google's open-source Android platform, which that alone is enough to drum up a bit of excitement.

From there, however, it's anyone's guess. We hope to see at least a 1GHz Snapdragon processor inside, and it's conceivable one of Intel's Atom chips could end up nestled inside. And if LG's tablet is to make a serious run at Apple's iPad, it will have to address the latter's shortcomings, meaning it would be wise to include USB ports, a microSD card slot, and at least one integrated webcam.
