The trio of LG G Pad tablets was announced by the company a couple of months ago, with little to no details on the hardware. The company subsequently launched the 7 inch variant of the tablet in the U.S. with the 8 and 10.1 inch models expected to follow suit this month. On the eve of the American launch of these budget tablets, LG has announced its availability in the global markets as well.
The tablet is expected to arrive in the U.S. first with Europe, Asia and other regions expected to follow suit by the end of this month. There’s not much info with regards to pricing at the moment, but we expect it to cost close to $400 given that it’s a large sized tablet.
Specs wise, this 10.1 inch tablet has a display resolution of 1280 x 800, a 1.2 GHz quad core SoC, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with a microSD card slot, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and an 8,000 mAh battery. The tablet also comes with a plethora of LG’s software features such as Knock Code, Smart Keyboard and the Dual Window mode which lets users run two applications side-by-side. It’s certainly a neat addition to the tablet market, although we’ll reserve judgment until the official pricing is announced.
