LG's return to the tablet market is official now that the company has launched its G Pad 8.3 in the United States. The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean tablet is available today and may have the specs to raise more interest than previous LG devices.
The LG G Pad 8.3 has an 8.3-inch IPS display with a 1080p HD resolution (1920x1200, 273 ppi). The tablet has a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 600), 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot supporting up to 64GB. A 4,600-mAh battery powers the tablet and a 5-megapixel camera handles photo duties.
LG's software features are present in the G Pad 8.3, so buyers will be able to use Quick Memo, QSlide Function, and Slide Aside, as covered in the LG G2 review for smartphones. It also has a QPair function that will connect with an LG phone to send and receive text messages, transfer notes with QuickMemo, tethering/mobile hotspot through the phone, and access recent apps that appear on both phone and tablet.
BestBuy.com has begun selling the LG G Pad 8.3. The tablet can be purchased for $349.99 starting today, and general store availability will start November 3.source: LG
