Larger-screened tablet for the same price as Google's Nexus 7
LG's G Pad 8.3 is one of the more impressive mid-sized Android tablets available today, with an 8.3-inch 1920x1200-resolution screen, a metal body and a Snapdragon 600 CPU. It's also got LG's colorful, love-it-or-loate-it Android UI, but that's easy enough to pare back if it's not your cup of tea. In any case we're starting to see the G Pad appearing at discounted prices in the UK, where it debuted around the £260 mark in October.
UK retailer Expansys is offering the 16GB G Pad for £199.99 — within 99 pence of Google's base Nexus 7 model, which comes with a smaller screen and slightly less powerful CPU. It's not a Nexus, meaning you won't get speedy updates or the pure Android software experience, but still, the G Pad 8.3 is a fine tablet for this price.
