Has the rumored HTC-made Nexus 8 got you thinking about an 8-inch Android tablet? If you just can’t wait to experience one for yourself, now is the chance to pick up a “factory reconditioned” (i.e., refurbished) 8.3″ LG G Pad 8.3 for $199 on Woot. That’s $100 cheaper than retail, and $50 less than Newegg had it in February, so it is a great deal.
A Snapdragon 600 paired with 2GB of RAM drives the G Pad’s Full HD (1080p) IPS display, which is rounded out by a 5MP rear-facing camera and 16GB of storage. We found the hardware quite solid in our unboxing and impressions video.
Sadly, the version of the G Pad 8.3 Woot! is selling is not the Google Play Edition, but hey, that’s what third-party launchers are for. It also does not have cellular connectivity, which might be a dealbreaker for a few folks.
Still, the price is definitely right.
