Now LG takes on the iPad

This looks interesting. LG, the South Korean electronics giant that probably made at least one out of your phone, DVD player, TV, fridge or microwave, is getting into the iPad-killing business. The company is readying a tablet computer to be released this autumn. It'll run Google's Android operating system, which usually sits on smartphones - so, like the iPad, it'll be easy to use and packed with multitouch features, and shoud have good battery life.

Don't worry if you think mobile OSs are too limited, though - there'll also be a version running good ol' Windows 7.

Are you excited about the coming wave of Android and Windows tablets? Or are you reading this on your new iPad? Or do you just like having a keyboard?
