Microsoft is showing off a shiny new tablet prototype from LG at Computex this week. The LG UX10 sports a 10.1 inch capacitive touchscreen display and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor. And it runs Windows 7 Home Premium, the cheapest version of Windows 7 to come with touchscreen features baked into the OS.
The demo unit also had 1GB of DDR2 memory, a 120GB hard drive, a 1.3MP webcam, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, an SD card slot and micro-HDMI output. It weighs about 1.9 pounds.
Engadget has more photos of the tablet, but the site glosses over the feature I find most intriguing — the 7500mAh battery. That’s a pretty high capacity battery. In fact, most netbooks ship with lower capacity batteries. When you pair the 7500mAh battery with the low power Intel Atom Z530 CPU, a tablet like this could probably run for a very long time on a charge.
There’s no word on the final pricing for the LG UX10 tablet, but Microsoft does say that while the demo unit is just a prototype, LG does plan to bring it to market eventually.
