LG Confirms Android Tablet, Froyo Phones for '10

Though we saw a ton of tablet devices at Computex, many of them were scheduled for launch 'early next year' or 'in the near future; very few companies were willing to commit to a 2010 launch. LG this week confirmed that it will be launching an Android slate in the fourth quarter of this year.

Unfortunately, LG didn't provide a lot of information about the device; in fact, the company just barely mentioned it in a press release about its plans for new Android smartphones. LG revealed no pricing or specifications for the device but promises it will deliver "vastly superior performance than other similar devices currently on the market while still managing to be thinner and lighter than competing devices."

LG revealed that both the Optimus Chic and Optimus One will pack Froyo when they launch later this year. Similarly, LG was pretty secretive about specs, pricing and release dates, so we'll have to wait to find out more on these two. However, we do know the Chic and its sleek design will be aimed at "fashion aficionados."

LG plans to release 10 new smartphones running a range of OSes under the 'Optimus' moniker in 2H 2010 alone.

    last lg phone I had sucked (it was a rumor) because it randomly turned off. Turns out it was a well known issue and lg decided they werent going to fix it. It wasnt just my phone either I had 3 for my family and every phone had the same problem.

    I dont care if these phones were faster than a full fledge notebook, Ill never own another crappy lg product.
