The LG G-Pad 8.3 Tablet Becomes Official
The elusive LG G-Pad tablet becomes a reality. Way back in 2011 LG decided it would release a handful of tablets. The Optimus Pad and G-Slate devices found their way into the iPad dominated market place only to be left in the shadows and mostly forgotten about. The following year the company launched the 4G LTE enabled Optimus Pad LTE that suffered much the same fate. Now in a show of determination LG will be launching a new G-Pad for 2013. New G-Pad brings ironically is named after previous LG tablets and brings the companies tablet offerings down a few inches into the more consumer friendly 8 inch ball park.
The LG G-Pad has been rumored, speculated and ultimately confirmed within the headlines for the last few months and last weekend the new slate became official! The G-Pad was announced on Sunday and is ready to be the companies fourth tablet offering and fill in a void that has mostly gone unclaimed by LG. The new G-Pad currently does not come with a price tag and will be getting its official unveiling at IFA this week. The new tablet will be launched globally in ‘key markets’ and will be sold in black and white variations. The press release goes on to confirm the tablet will make an appearance in Europe, Asia and North America starting the fourth quarter of this year. So what can you expect? The G-Pad is set to come with an 8.3 inch WUXGA touch screen that offers up a 1920×1200 resolution at 273 pixels per inch, which according to LG is the “first 8-inch class tablet to offer a Full HD Display”.
