LG Announces Availability for New G Pad Tablets, Begins in Europe Starting Next Week

Back in early May, LG announced a new G Pad lineup, consisting of three tablets – the G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0, and G Pad 10.1.

LG announced European availability this morning, stating that buyers in Europe can pick up a G Pad 7.0 beginning next week, with G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1 availability coming in the next few weeks. But still, no official word on a US launch from the manufacturer.  (more…)

LG Announces Three New G Pad Tablets

This evening, shortly before posting a new promo video for the G Watch, LG also announced three new tablets to its G Pad line – the G Pad 7.0, 8.0, and 10.1. All three tablets will be officially unveiled May13-16 at MedPI 2014, a European tech show.

These new tablets are joining the G Pad 8.3 to provide new options for tablets users who want choices in size. No specs have been given, but all include LG’s proprietary UX with features like QPair and Knock Code.

As you can imagine, the 7.0 is a 7-inch tablet that is made for one-handed use. The 8.0 is a mid-sized tablet with an “immersive multimedia experience.” The 10.1 is the big dog, a tablet that provides “endless hours of entertainment and fun.” And that is all we know. (more…)
