android The Wall Street Journal has an interview with Chang Ma, vice president of marketing for South Korean electronics company LG, in which he talks about his company’s smartphone plans, and the Android tablet LG plans to launch globally by the fourth quarter of 2010. Ma boldly claims that, “Our tablet will be better than the iPad.”

The tablet 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, Mr. Ma said.

The article notes that LG has fallen behind in the smartphone market, as companies like Apple and HTC have gained, but Ma believes that Android can help the company catch up. It also plans to release a range of smartphone products targeting different consumer needs and tastes.
