128917-128224718239246-Ray-Hendon

Chang Ma, vice president of marketing for LG in the WSJ announcing is Google Android OPTIMUS, the first tablet of his company:

The first LG tablet will set itself apart from Apple’s iPad by focusing on the ability to create content, rather than simply display it.

Mr. Ma said that the iPad is a great device, but he doesn’t do much work on it.

“Our tablet will be better than the iPad.”

The tablet, Mr. Ma said, will include content focused on creation such as writing documents, editing video and creating programs.

It will also have “high-end features and new benefits,” many of which will focus on productivity.

Interesting challenge.

90% consumption.

10% creation.

More competition is always good.

Another reason not to miss the INMA/NIEMAN/INNOVATION Harvard Tablet Summit.

Cambridge, December 2-3, 2010.

A Worldwide Summit to learn, master and share new ideas.

Be there!
