LG G Pad 8.3 has October 14th release date in Korea; tablet is coming to 30 countries before 2014
The tablet offers an 8.3 inch IPS display with resolution of 1920 x 1200 which works out to a pixel density of 273 ppi. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage inside. A microSD slot is on board and the back and front cameras weigh in at 5MP and 1.3MP respectively. A 4600mAh battery powers the slate and Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed.
The LG G Pad 8.3 will cost you 550,000 Won ($515 USD) in Korea, although the pricing in other countries is unknown. Last month a report out of China suggested that the slab will be priced at an enticing $299 in the U.S. For the Korean manufacturer, the tablet allows it to go after the 7.9 inch Apple iPad mini. Now that the 7 inch niche is well covered by Android models like the Google Nexus 7 (2013), 8 inches appears to be the next frontier.

Lost opportunity for LG. LG had such a beautiful device to reach out to mass but they have really screwed it with this kind of pricing. $515 for a tablet! LG what are smoking!!!

Just don't understand why companies keep pricing selves out of the market. At that price point, only one they are going to go after is the Kindle, if they are lucky.
