Could LG be coming back to the tablet market?

lg-logoConsumer electronics giant LG is rumored to be going back into a market which they decided to vacate a few years ago. According to Korean tech site, LG is getting quite serious about tablets all over again.

About two years ago, LG’s original Optimus Pad flopped hard. It was way too pricey for what it offered and consumers noticed. Since then, LG has managed to come back to life. Their phones are selling quite well, and since tablets are practically just an extension of smartphone operations, LG now seems to be in the position to give them another go.

There are still no specs available and we don’t even know what sort of platform LG would opt for (seeing this is all just hear-say), although at this point it seems that choosing anything other than Android would be quite the mistake. Honestly, the guys at, said it best, “The Android tablet market is getting crowded, but then again Windows RT is circling the drain, while Windows 8 tablets have yet to catch on.”

To sum it up, details are currently way too sketchy to come to any real conclusions. What would you like to see LG include in a future tablet? Let us know in the comments below!
