UK retailer Expansys is selling the Wi-Fi-only G Pad 8.3 tablet for $326 (£199.99). Of course, the Wi-Fi-only Nexus 7's $286 (£176.00) goods-to-price ratio is yet to be beaten, but for an additional $49 (£30), you will get a more powerful, better-designed device with a bigger display. Then again, the Nexus 7 is blessed with the advantage of almost zero-day Android updates, while the G Pad is still running on Jelly Bean.
Meanwhile, the competing iPad mini with Retina display is priced at a hearty $520 (£319) in the UK. In the USA, it costs $399, which is how much Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 will retail for in the States. Therefore, Brits should expect Sammy's latest 8-incher to be priced in the same ballpark.
