LG has become a mobile powerhouse this year and the company is spreading its wings with confidence, filling niches with numerous products. The brand already has a solid tablet range thanks to the G Pad, but it seems LG will add a new slate of a different kind. Reports today suggest the company is working on a new tablet that will be productivity focused and will arrive with a detachable keyboard.Of course, a tablet with a detachable keyboard is nothing new, just take a look at Microsoft's Surface range. In fact, the Windows ecosystem is home to plenty of keyboard toting slates, but on Android (and indeed iOS) companies have not been interested in keyboards and users have needed to buy third party offerings. The LG machine will be a bit of a mini-computer beast, a true productivity machine. It will get a fourth generation Intel Core chip, a solid state drive (SSD), and other normally PC related goodies. That really leads to the question, what operating system would this tablet run? LG has worked with both Windows and Android in the past, but recently seems more dedicated to the latter. An Android slate with those specs would be a first, whereas on Windows it would be more par for the course. It would be nice for Android to get a proper productivity oriented tablet, but these specs scream Windows 8.1. What do you think, would you buy an LG productivity tablet, and if so which operating system would your prefer it to run?
