LG Planning New Tablet For Q3 2013, Not Working On A Nexus 5

It's been awhile since LG produced a product in the tablet space and too few remember the 3D capturing Optimus Pad V900 and its uninspiring successor the Optimus Pad LTE.

In an interview with Dutch All About Phones Vice President LG Mobile for Europe Kim Won has revealed that LG is indeed working on tablet hardware for this year, which, if we hypothesize, should probably create an appearance at the IFA congress in Berlin this September.

Kim Won had other fascinating things to say as well. He admitted LG isn't working on a Nexus 5 smartphone as of now but doesn't dismiss working again with Google in the future. He added that releasing a flagship device, rebranded with AOSP Android (like Samsung and Google did) isn't on the table as LG will not have advantage with a device, stripped of its custom UI.

He also assumed that LG isn't excited with the duopoly of Android and iOS and assumed that LG might be looking for another sustainable Operating System (OS) for future business but made clear he was not referring to Windows Phone - so perhaps Tizen or Firefox Operating System (OS) then?

Finally, Kim Won assumed that LG might work on its own chip design for smartphones in the future.
