LG launches its biggest G Pad tablet
Starting today, consumers looking for a large tablet have one more option to choose from as LG rolls out its 10.1-inch G Pad across the globe. The slate is part of the South Korean maker's budget-friendly lineup, which was introduced in mid-May.
G Pad 7.0 was the first of LG's new slates to debut on the market, less than a month ago. Its bigger sibling, G Pad 10.1, is available first in US, with other markets -- Europe, Asia and Latin America -- to follow shortly, later this month.
LG does not specifically mention how much G Pad 10.1 costs, as its price depends on the market and local taxes. Here is what it offers.
G Pad 10.1 features: 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1280 by 800; 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor; 1 GB of RAM; 8,000 mAh battery; 16 GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot; 5 MP back-facing camera; 1.3 MP front-facing camera; Wi-Fi; Android 4.4.2 KitKat; it comes in at 260.9 x 165.9 x 8.9 mm and 523 grams. Available color trims include white and red.
On the software side, LG includes G3-borrowed features like Touch & Shoot, which allows users to take photos quickly, Geatures Shot for Selfies, which allows users to take a selfie by making a hand gesture, Smart Keyboard, which is LG's SwiftKey-like keyboard, and Dual Window, which enables two apps to run side-by-side.
