LG may be a little late jumping into the smartphone business, but that's not stopping them from having supreme confidence in their new products getting ready to hit the market. They have plans for ten new smartphones and an Android tablet under their Optimus banner by the end of the year and sell five million devices globally across 120 operators.
Chang Ma, vice president of marketing for LG's mobile-devices unit, has high hopes; especially for the tablet. "Our tablet will be better than the iPad," he stated. "It's going to be surprisingly productive." The tablet will be based on the Android OS and focus on "the ability to create content instead of simply displaying it." No word yet on whether a wireless carrier will be involved in distribution of the tablet.
