LG goes big with 8.3 inch G Pad

The latest member of the G clan drags LG back into the tablet race
LG goes big with 8.3 inch G Pad

LG is going full steam with its G line of devices and now a tablet joins its ranks that already has the LG Optimus G Pro and the even better G2

We’ve seen the amazing detail that LG is packing into its smartphones and it appears that their tablet displays are getting similar treatment. The G Pad’s full HD-fronted display is the first of its kind for an 8in tablet with its higher resolution 1920 x 1200  WUXGA (Widescreen Ultra Extended Graphics Array) leaving standard full-HD in the dust. 

With such heavyweight brilliance in the display department, you’d expect the G Pad to be similarly stout in appearance to pull it off. But it remains sleek and portable at a more-than-manageable 338g. Running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Processor with 1.7GHz of quad-core power, the G Pad packs a punch and you should be able to get some pretty decent life from its 4600mAh battery.

The G Pad's QPair app will play nice with other devices. It seamlessly integrates calls and messages from other smartphones to be viewed and replied via the G Pad. It doesn't end there, as the G Pad's QMemo notes can be shared with other manufacturer's devices.

The G Pad also comes with improved multitasking features that made their debut on the G2 - Slide Aside, which reveals the multitask bar a three-finger swipe, QSlide that shows three different apps in a single window and the convenient KnockOn which brings the tablet out of its slumber with a double tap. 

For a full hands-on, stay tuned to our IFA coverage happening later this week!
