As rumored yesterday, the LG V510 is nothing but the Google Play Edition LG G Pad 8.3. The tablet has finally gone official as it has landed on the Google Play Store with a decent price tag of $349.99 for the 16GB variant. But the limited storage variant shouldn’t concern potential buyers much as the tablet sports a microSD card slot. This is certainly a clever way to boost the sales of the tablet as LG has been historically behind in terms of tablets.
It’s hard to tell if this will affect the sales of the Nexus 7, but considering that it sports better hardware with stock Android and the fact that it’s relatively bigger than the Nexus 7 might seem like a more appealing option to the buyers. The tablet features a 8.3 inch 1920×1200 resolution display, a quad core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 SoC, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP camera on the back with a 1.3MP front camera, a 4,600 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat with the promise of timely updates as with any GPE device.
The CEO of LG Dr. Jon-seok Park had this to say about the launch – “LG’s working relationship with Google has always been strong and our collaboration on the first-ever Google Play Edition tablet is proof of that commitment. The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is a device with hardware and software that has been optimized for a truly consumer-friendly experience. There’s nothing else like it out there in the marketplace.”
