And it brings with it’s a lot of surprises. First off, the LG Tab Book Duo is a rather unexpected launch, in that the company has been rather silent when it comes to tablets in recent times.

The Korean giant has not releasing anything of note since the G Pad family with its meddling hardware.

This sleek and beautiful convertible, on the other hand, is now officially announced, comes powered by Windows 8.1 and offers a very healthy 11 hours of usage on a single charge, in a tablet/notebook form factor. So far so good.

The device comes with in two distinct parts — a tablet and a keyboard.

On the tablet side, you get a nice 10-inch form factor, which although comes with an unspecified resolution, but chances are that it is a 1920 x 1080 pixel count.

Again, LG has not cleared whether it is houses a Broadwell chip inside, but the company has revealed that the device packs a quad-core Intel processor. Keeping in mind the thin form factor (and impressive battery life), it is worth a wager that it does indeed make use of the fanless Core M chip.

As a tablet it weighs only 530 g (or 1.16 lbs.) and offers a USB 3.0 port along with a microHDMI one. Snap in the keyboard, and the weight of the Tab Book Duo ups to 729 g (1.6 lbs.), which is still somewhat manageable.

LG has put the device up for sale right away, for around $670.
