LG reveals Windows 8 PC-hybrid lineup for Korea

LG does indeed make PCs in addition to smartphones. Today, the company revealed on its Korean language website plans to launch at least two PC products, an all-in-one and a notebook-tablet hybrid, made especially for Microsoft's Windows 8. Yes, the lovely lady in the picture seems to be showing three devices, but the press release mentions only two PCs; we assume the tablet in the picture is just one form of the tablet-notebook hybrid.

The 23 inch all-in-one PC, the V325, has a 10-point touch screen. It also has a TV tuner built in that can be used even if the PC portion of the device is turned off. It also has Intel's Core i5 processor inside, along with a NVIDIA GeForce GT640M graphics card.

LG will also release the H160 hybrid, which turns from a 11.6 inch tablet to a notebook by sliding the screen up, similar to the design for Sony's Vaio Duo 11 hybrid. LG claims the H160 will have a battery life of up to 10 hours.

At the moment, LG only has plans to release both of its Windows 8 PCs in Korea, alongside the Windows 8 launch on October 26th. It will also relaunch its previous PC Ultrabooks with Windows 8 pre-installed on that date.
