Holiday season is the best time of the year to shop for electronics devices, as almost every carrier and retailer offers some kind of special promotion. If you are currently on the market for a new tablet, you might want to check out Verizon’s latest deal. The Big Red network has just launched the LG G Pad 7.0 and LG G Pad 10.1, two budget-friendly tablets with LTE connectivity.
LG G Pad 7.0 and G Pad 10.1 LTE for Verizon
Even though the tablets are very similar, the difference in pricing is quite significant. The smaller model is priced at $49.99, while the bigger version will set you back $199.99 on contract. These prices are not permanent; however, Verizon didn’t disclose when the promotion ends and how much the devices will cost afterwards. If you want to grab the tablets off contract, you should have $249.99 or $299.99 in your wallet, depending on whether you want the 7-inch model or the 10.1-inch version. The tablets can be added to existing More Everything accounts for an additional $10 monthly access fee.
The most noticeable difference between the LG G Pad 7.0 and 10.1 is size of the screen, though both have the same 1280×800 resolution. Moreover, the bigger model comes with a large 8,000 mAh battery, while the unit used in the 7-inch version has half the capacity, that is 4,000 mAh. Besides these small differences, both tablets are equipped with identical hardware and run the same software – Android 4.4.4 KitKat with LG skin on top complete with Knock Code.
Both tablets are powered by quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 chips and come with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory expandable up to 64GB plus More Everything customers receive 25GB cloud storage on Verizon Cloud at no additional charge. Other features include 5-megpixel rear cameras and 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooters for selfies and video chatting.
Both Pads are pretty modest in terms of specs, but they appear to meet all the criteria for decent mid-range tablets. If you are looking for an inexpensive slate to help you pass those long winter evenings, you may have just found it. Anyone planning to grab the new LG G Pad 7.0 or G Pad 10.1?
