By Oonagh Reidy | Wednesday | 06/11/2013

LG launches 8.3" tablet - on Android Jelly Bean

LG Australia announced the release G Pad 8.3, available at JB Hi-Fi only for a very competitive $399 RRP.

The all-new Pad 8.3 boasts a Full HD IPS display, quad core Snapdragon 600 Processor Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2. It is WiFi only. 

The LG tab is skinny, with 7.2mm bezel side and has a 4600mAh lithium polymer battery for long-lasting usage time. It weighs the same as a newspaper at 338g. 

It also has some clever functions like  KnockON, which wakes your tablet by just tapping it, and QPair pairs it with an Android smartphone, so you can switch between devices. G Pad 8.3 allows simultaneous use of apps on its Full HD display. 

G Pad is as light as a newspaper
It will be exclusive to JB Hi-Fi for the coming months at least, a company rep told CN. 

Key Specifications:

.       Processor: 1.7GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 

.       Display: 8.3" WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixels / 273 ppi)

.       Memory: 16GB eMMC (Micro SD up to 64GB)

.       RAM: 2GB LPDDR2

     Camera: Rear 5.0MP AF/ Front 1.3MP

 .       Battery: 4,600mAh Lithium Polymer

.       Operating System: Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2

.       Size: 216.8 x 126.5 x 8.3mm

 "We believe that customers are looking for compact portability without compromising on technology when buying a tablet. The G Pad 8.3 marks LG's entrance into the tablet category and we're thrilled to be launching such an innovative and premium product. 

"With its beautiful display and slim design, the device packs a punch thanks to its long-lasting battery and quad-core 1.7GHz processor," said Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing for LG Australia.
