LG President: 'Our tablet will be better than the iPad.'

The maker of many of Apple’s displays including the iPhone 4 Retina Display had some not so kind words for their other iOS product today. Speaking to the PayWall St. Journal Chang Ma, vice president of marketing for LG’s mobile-devices unit said,

The first LG tablet, which will run on Google Inc.’s Android software, will set itself apart from Apple Inc.’s iPad by focusing on the ability to create content, rather than simply display it.  The iPad is a great device, but he doesn’t do much work on it. 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. Our tablet will be better than the iPad.”

Uh huh.  These things usually pan out.
