Re: LG software?
One source worth reviewing for new Tablets is the site -- iProTablet - which features six new models to launch in May, including the iFive mini4 ($199) - which is the first 8-inch Android tablet on the market with a retina-quality, 2048x1536 display and powered by the new RK3288 processor with performance comparable to Snapdragon 800.

Also new this week and available through iProTablet is the Pipo T9 ($277) - with an 8.9" full HD display and features comparable to the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" tablet; plus offers a 3G HSPA+ SIM card slot with Internet and voice calling function like a regular Android phone.

LG software?
>LG said its tablets will be chock full of LG-developed software and services. 

Does anyone really want software from hardware vendors? In my experience, that's just bloatware.

Re: Superfluous?
I haven't seen many Samsung units in the wild. Anyone else? I am curious if we will see more smartwatch options (in addition to the LG) at Google I/O.

Superfluous?
Seems like LG is a lot of days late here. The tablet market overall is slowing, and I don't see a reason why most people will not choose based on whose cloud holds their stuff - Apple (iPad), Amazon (Fire), Google (Nexus) or Microsoft (Surface) with Samsung as the #5 pick.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
