While Samsung was happy to announce its Galaxy Tab S devices as the main event on June 12th, LG was content to release a trio of tablets that same day but in a slightly different league. These three tablets are LG’s new LG G Pad series featuring 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch versions, and if those dimensions look familiar, that’s because they are the same size offerings of the Samsung Galaxy Tab devices. While LG’s G Pad 8.3 was surely a very solid device, it was losing market share in the tablet market without matching offerings at 7 and 10.1-inches, and so we arrive now at June 12th with this announcement.
Much like the Galaxy Tab tablets, the LG G Pad series compromises between price and performance, all housing quadcore 1.2GHz processors, 1GB RAM and 1280×800 IPS displays. Add to that availability in Black, White, Red, Luminous Orange and Luminous Blue, and you have an extremely vibrant range of devices. A nice addition that LG has made to these tablets is the introduction of QPair 2.0 which allows Android smartphones to sync with Android tablets over Bluetooth, enabling the tablet to receive calls and messages. While they won’t set the world on fire with their performance, it’s clear that there is a big market in this range of tablets and we’ll see if the LG G Pad series can work wonders for LG.
