LG Could Be Preparing To Launch Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Competitor: Hybrid Computers On a Re-Run?

By Anuj

Looks like Microsoft has inspired yet another electronics company to come with a hybrid computing device. While the Surface Pro 3 continues to be a classic example of productivity meets fun; LG, on the other hand, is reportedly planning to make a new hybrid that closely resembles the current generation Surface Pro 3.

LG has a new "productivity-tablet" in works with a detachable keyboard, similar to the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, claims ZDNet Korea. According to a report, the device will be stuffed using Intel's fourth-generation core processor and may pack a Solid State Drive (SSD) for "portability and better battery life", informs a representative over at LG.

Rumor has it that LG is also considering to add a soft touchpad on the keyboard, something users would definitely appreciate. Meanwhile, no more information about the hybrid device has been leaked so far.

LG Could Be Preparing To Launch Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Competitor

So far LG has been struggling to produce killer tablets or hybrid Windows-powered computers for that matter. Both Samsung and LG had shifted their focus from quality computing devices, since the smartphone boom begun a few years back.

The G3 maker does offer tablet computing devices in select markets. In fact, there have been reports in the past that LG might launch its G Pad tablet range in India sometime this year. But it seems that LG has some bigger plans, as far as its upcoming lineup is concerned.

Back in 2013, LG did try to enter the hybrid computing market, in the form of the Windows 8.1-powered Tab Book. The 11.6-inch device was launched in select markets globally. However, due to timid response, the company had cancelled its plans to launch the computing device in other parts of the world.

The Surface Pro 3 is getting all attention these days. The device is thinner and lighter than its predecessor. Originally projected as a lethal combination of productivity and style, the Surface Pro 3 remains Microsoft's best product to date.

Since there aren't many top-notch computing devices available onto market, the demand for the Surface Pro 3 is expected to rise sharply.

Regular Tablets Sees Declining Sales

According to a new report from analytics firm IDC, 2014 will mark the first time since its launch that the iPad will see a year-over-year decline in sales. Tablets aren't making noise in the market. Not just Apple, but other players have failed to shift tablet units in large number. Meanwhile, analysts believe that the demand for tablet will continue to decline due to the influx of large screen phablets.
