It's essentially an 11.6-inch Android tablet, but one that seems to think it's a Chromebook or a laptop.
For a start, it has a slide-out keyboard and behind the IPS display is a very potent Intel Haswell Core i5 processor. This is the sort of chipset usually reserved for notebooks like the 13-inch MacBook Pro, meaning that, from a performance aspect seeing as it's just running Android, it's like using a sledgehammer to tap in a nail.
But that could also mean that it's a device with some serious multi-tasking capabilities and one that can bridge the gap between leisure and productivity that often exists on tablets when trying to use them for jobs more commonly carried out on a computer.
The Intel chip also has a very generous 4GB of RAM to draw on and the touchscreen display is full HD resolution, so should be great for watching movies or gaming on the go.
Rich media like videos take up a lot of space but the Tab Book 11 has a 128GB solid state drive plus support for MicroSD cards for further memory expansion. LG has also made space for HDMI input and for 2 USB 3.0 ports. Yet it only weighs 1kg.
All of which makes the device a very unusual and interesting proposition and one that suggests consumers are looking for something that sits between a tablet and a notebook.
LG is not alone in trying to address this potential market. In February, Samsung, LG's closest direct rival, unveiled the Galaxy NotePro, a 12.2-inch tablet aimed at power users, and reports have been circulating since the start of the year that Apple too is toying with the idea of an iPad ‘Pro' tablet with a similarly large 12-inch screen.
However, unlike Samsung's pro tablet, which is available globally, it's unclear as to whether the Tab Book 11 will go on sale beyond South Korea where it was officially announced on Tuesday.
