Microsoft has just unveiled a new tablet PC manufactured by LG at the Computex 2010 event called the UX10 which uses Microsoft’s Windows 7 Home Premium as the operating software. The tablet is one of Microsoft’s mediums for entering the tablet PC space to compete with its rival, Apple, according to the Engadget.
The LG UX10 sports a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor with 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a SD memory card slot, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and a 1.3MP webcam. It weighs about 1.9 pounds.
It has a great design and could really make it for a nice tablet. Currently we know it sports a 7200m Ah battery, but we haven’t heard anything about its lifetime, though it should be long enough for a browsing session. Fortunately it comes with a micro-HDMI output so you can connect it to a monitor or TV.
Microsoft really wants to give Apple a hard time with all the Windows 7 based tablets being released, though we know the truth is the hard job will be on their side. The company hasn’t revealed the price of the gadget but has confirmed that that prototype will be developed into a proper tablet and will be available for sale later. [via Engadget]
