The LG GW990 was featured in Paul Otellini’s Intel CES keynote yesterday, which marked the world’s first demonstration of the GW990.
The LG GW990 is based on the Intel Moorestown platform and represents a new generation of powerful smartphones.
The Linux-based Moblin 2.1 operating system paired with the Moorestown platform provides a highly-responsive rich user interface.

LG and Intel had previously announced their collaboration early last year at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The LG GW990 is an mobile internet device that combines the high performance and rich internet capabilities of a PC with the mobility of a smartphone.
The 4.8-inch full touchscreen display with a 2.13:1 aspect ratio offers a compelling mobile viewing experience. The display runs at a resolution of 1024 x 480 pixels and provides a full screen to display web content without the need for scrolling.

The user experience on devices such as the LG GW990 will continue to improve as faster broadband speeds emerge with 4G deployments. While the version that was demonstrated in the keynote was based on HSPA, LG indicated that the GW990 is extensible to support Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks and the company has plans to add this functionality in the future. The LG GW990 roadmap gives LG a unique opportunity to bring its leadership in LTE chipsets to market.

The LG GW990 is expected to come to market in the second half of 2010.

So is teh LG GW990 still a smartphone or already a Tablet? Dell showed a 5-inch concept of a Dell Tablet yesterday. The GW990 is only slightly smaller.
