LG: “Our tablet will be better than the iPad.” – We Mark Their Words

LG's vice-president of marketing for mobile devices Chang Ma told the WSJ:

"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.

"It's going to be surprisingly productive," he said."

We've been waiting for you, LG. Sort of. Mainly because we wanted to mark such words and save it for future reference. Funny thing is, many of these manufacturers made jokes about the iPad when it was announced, and now they're desperately trying to catch up.

Oh, how the market changes.
