LG G Pad 8.3 launches: $350 gets you 1920x1200 screen and premium chassis
We found the LG G Pad 8.3 to be one of the best additions to the Android slate stable, and it is now officially available in the US for a pretty good price point, considering its specs and looks.
The MSRP for the tablet in the US is $349.99 in places like Best Buy, for which you get an 8.3" 1200x1920 almost Full HD IPS display, a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory plus microSD slot, 5 MP BSI camera on the back, and a generous 4600 mAh lithium polymer battery. LG G Pad will be running Android 4.2.2. at launch.
The slate comes with the trim 8.54 x 4.98 x 0.33 inches (216.8 x 126.5 x 8.3 mm) dimensions, and just 11.92 oz (338 g) of weight, despite the brushed metal backplate. Yep, you read that right the 8.3" screen comes with the hearty 273ppi density, making the G Pad 8.3 one of the best value for money small Android tablets you can buy at the moment, barring the subsidized new Nexus 7.
