A little over a month after it has been announced at IFA in Berlin, LG’s latest tablet, the LG G Pad 8.3, has made it to the stores in the US. At the moment, the device is up for grabs from Best Buy’s online store. If you prefer to see and touch the actual device before the purchase, you will have to wait two and a half weeks, since the tablet is scheduled to arrive at Best Buy brick and mortar stores on November 3rd. The LG G Pad 8.3 will set you back $349.99 and will be delivered with no additional costs for free.
8.3-inch LG G Pad Android Tablet
The LG G Pad 8.3 Android tablet belongs to a new lineup of premium devices introduced earlier this year. The “G” in the name is LG’s synonym of high quality making the device is a worthy competitor of the iPad Mini.
The tablet measures 8.54 x 4.98 x 0.33 inch (216.8 x 126.5 x 8.3 mm) and weighs in at 11.93 (338 g). The screen size can be easily deduced from the name. What we should add to complete the picture is that the display offers 1920 x 1200 with a pixel density of 273 ppi.
A quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor is handling all the work with the help of 2 GB of RAM. The LG G Pad 8.3 offers 16 GB of internal memory and if you need more room for all your content, there is a microSD slot compatible with up to 64 GB cards.
Other features of the G Pad 8.3 that might be found interesting include a 4,600 mAh battery and a 5-mehapixel camera with auto focus and BSI sensor. The tablet runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and comes pre-loaded with LG-exclusive apps such as QSlide Function 2.0, Slide Aside and more.
