Today, LG announced the Tab Book 11, an 11.6-inch keyboard toting tablet/notebook hybrid device that utilizes Intel’s Haswell Core i5 processor. Fitted with hardware suited for a laptop, the South Korean electronics manufacturer’s new gadget packs a hearty 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, HDMI-in USB 3.0 (two ports) and a microSD card reader.

While the Tab Book 11’s specs sound like a decent Chromebook waiting to happen, LG has instead elected to ship this device with Android — version 4.2 to be exact. Even so, its 1,920 × 1,080 display, sliding keyboard and snazzy hardware might make the Tab Book 11 an attractive device for tinkerers, however there’s no telling if it’ll ever be released outside of South Korea.
