LG G Pad 8.3 Goes On Sale In The U.S. For $350
LG has today announced that its new G Pad 8.3 tablet is now on sale in the U.S., priced at $349.99. The device looks a little like a large LG G2, and it features an 8.3-inch 1920×1200 display with 273 pixels-per-inch, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 16GB of internal storage, and a 5-megapixel camera.
Those are nice specifications for a tablet of this size, and its $350 price tag isn’t too bad, either. It’s worth noting, however, that it is more expensive than the latest Nexus 7, and the iPad mini. But you get a bigger display, a large 4,600mAh battery, and a microSD card slot for expandable storage.
“From its light weight to its sleek design, LG G Pad 8.3 is the ultimate complement to the Android smartphone experience,” said James Fishler, senior vice president of marketing for LG. “LG G Pad 8.3 delivers top-notch viewing and entertainment for Android users with its impressive Full HD screen and useful, intuitive multitasking tools like those found in LG G2.”
The G Pad 8.3 ships with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean pre-installed, which is with LG’s own user interface. The device is available in black and white, and you can order it today from BestBuy.com. It will also be on sale in retail stores nationwide beginning November 3.
