The idea behind Hexlock isn't a new one: it's an app that allows the user to lock specific apps behind either a PIN or pattern screen.

It looks like LG is ready to try again, at least according to this page on the company's Korean website. The promo page describes a mid-sized tablet with some advanced features, but poor specs.
