LG announces G Pad 8.3,before the new iPad mini is unvelied

Just before Apple announces the new iteration to it’s best selling tablet the iPad mini, the competition is also not sleeping . LG has announced its 8-inch slate before Apple can steal the spotlight, how long that LG fame will last is for you and me to wait and see. The Korean electronics giant’s tablet comes with another first full HD display (1920 x 1200, to be exact) in a tablet of this size — though it conveniently dismisses the new Nexus 7, presumptively because it falls into the 7-inch class, not 8.

Other specs include 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. It will run on Android 4.2.2 — not Android 4.3 — with the unpopular LG customizations that we saw on the G2 smartphone. There is also a unique feature to the G Pad that LG calls “QPair,” allowing users to pair to their smartphone and manage calls and messages directly from the tablet. We wonder why this was done, cause we rarely see people make calls on their tablets.

There is no communication on Pricing yet, but LG says the G Pad 8.3 will be available in black and white across North America, Africa, Asia, and Europe in the fourth quarter of the year. we guess We shall see more of this tablet at IFA in the coming days.
