LG are in the Windows tablet/convertible market now after releasing the Tab Book Duo, a slate none of us saw coming and one that boasts a battery life that rivals iPads and Android tablets. The Korean company has surprised us with the Tab Book Duo, but we are hardly complaining as it seems like the kind of product that could work.It has a 10-inch IPS LCD screen (the resolution has not been revealed), while it has a kickstand and a Bluetooth keyboard that can be linked to either the Tab Book Duo or a smartphone, and in fact it can even be connected to both at the same time. It also has a quad-core Intel processor (probably a Core M fanless chip with this kind of battery life), and LG is boasting 11 hours of battery life, which is up there with Android and iOS slates. Not bad at all considering this will be a full Windows product. LG has also added some other enticing here, such a 3.0 USB port, a micro HDMI port, and weighs 530g, and 792g when the keyboard is linked. The device features full Windows 8.1 and is launching today in Korea for around $670 and if you buy it on Monday there is a free Microsoft wireless mouse. LG says the Tab Book Duo will also be on its way to other regions.
