Tablet, Tech Digest news

lg-g-pad-83.jpgLG will be looking to muscle in on tablet turf dominated by Apple’s iPad Mini and Google’s Nexus 7 with their latest slate addition, the LG G Pad 8.3.

The company’s second roll of the tablet device following the ill-fated Optimus Pad a few years back, the G Pad 8.3 has a top-end spec sheet, including an 8.3 full HD 1920 x 1080 display.

Running Android 4.2.2, the tablet is powered by a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, with operating system re-skinned to include many of the same features found in the recently revealed LG G2 smartphone.

“Complementing our G Series smartphones, the introduction of the LG G Pad 8.3 further strengthens LG’s premium lineup consisting of our most cutting-edge devices,” said LG CEO and president Dr Jong-seok Park.

“Our G Pad is just another example of LG delivering devices with the unique selling points consumers around the world will appreciate.”

Hitting the US and Europe this November, there’s no pricing available yet, though LG have confirmed both white and black casing colours will be on offer. We’ll look to go hands-on with the tablet at this year’s IFA press conference.
