LG Electronics Mobile has chosen Atmel maXTouch solution to power its recently launched G-Slate 8.9inch Android tablet touchscreen.

The LG Electronics Mobile G-Slate is a 4G tablet with an 8.9inch touchscreen that runs on Honeycomb, the 3.0 version of the Android operating system. Available by T-Mobile in the US, the G-Slate is powered by Atmel's mXT1386 maXTouch solution and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 1GHz processor.

The 8.9inch WXGA display gives G-Slate users an optimal touch experience including 10 simultaneous touches at one time. The PC tablet comes with a 6,400mAh battery, 5M pixel 3D camera and weighs 620g.

Atmel's maXTouch solution claims the best accuracy, linearity and repeatability offering industry-best multi-touch with unlimited touch capability; enhanced gestures; low power consumption; fast response time; and high signal-to-noise ratio to detect the most sensitive touches with a finger nail, stylus and a user with gloves on his hands. These chipsets also reject unintended touches including grip and palm rejection to enable an easy-to-use, intuitive and seamless touch experience for the user.
