LG doesn’t get a lot of name drops here on Windows Phone Central. At one point LG was making Windows Phone devices, but stopped making them after poor response and sales. They haven’t been particularly strong in laptops or tablets either, but a few devices of theirs surprised us this week at CES. Their ultrabook, called the Ultra PC, left us with a good first impression. Here’s a quick look at another interesting machine from LG – the Tab-Book 2.
The Tab-Book 2 comes in two configurations, one based around an Intel’s Core processors and the other around Atom processors, also from Intel. Both variants run Windows 8.1 and feature a beautiful 11.6-inch IPS display running at 1920 x 1080. The Tab-Book 2 with the higher end Core processors are slightly bigger and slightly heavier than the Atom version. For example, the Core version of the Tab-Book 2 is 16.7 mm thin and weight 2.31 lbs. While the Atom version is just 13.7 mm thin and weighs only 2.05 lbs.
Now that we have the differences out of the way we can actually talk about the machine. The Tab-Book 2 features a really unique hinge mechanism that transforms it from tablet to laptop with just a push of a button. On the left side of the device is a button that will neatly lift the screen from the keyboard. Check it out in action in the video embedded above.
Like the Ultra PC, LG doesn’t have pricing or availability information to share right now. We’ll try to get to get one into our offices sooner than later.
