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.
