LG, $TBA lge.com.au Ten inches is too big and 7 inches is too small, ac­cord­ing to LG. The South Korean com­pany’s re­search found that 8.9 inches is just right for tablet own­ers who want to com­fort­ably hold their gad­get and type with both hands in land­scape mode. The re­sult­ing Op­ti­mus Tab is a slen­der unit that weighs 100g less than its big com­peti­tor at 630g, and uses a pow­er­ful dual-core 1GHz pro­ces­sor to run Google’s An­droid Hon­ey­comb soft­ware, the first de­signed for tablets. In ad­di­tion, the Tab can record five-megapixel pho­tos or 720p videos with two cam­era lenses on its back, though it can only play this in old-school red-and-blue 3D on its screen or in stereo­scopic 3D when con­nected to a TV. Due for re­lease in March.
