LG's Tablet Will Be "Surprisingly Productive" and "Better Than the iPad"

In an interview with the WSJ, LG's VP of Marketing made the bold statement that "our tablet will be better than the iPad." Why so confident, LG? It's "going to be surprisingly productive," apparently.

After all, it's not the first time we've heard a company exec state on paper that their product is better than the iPhone/iPad/sliced bread. But to follow up a claim like that with the tease of content-creating features, such as document, video and photo-editing leaves me feeling a little dry.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see a tablet that can handle a video editing suite, or something like Photoshop for tinkering with photos. But when LG's tablet is expected to run on Android, it's going to have a tough time distinguishing it from other Android tablets. They'll have to pump it with quad-core chips and slap at least a couple of USB ports on there to live up to those claims.

As we saw with the Photoshop Express iPad app, just because you can build a Photoshop app doesn't mean you should. [WSJ]
