LG shows off features, colors, and roller skates in new G Pad promo video
At the initial announcement, not all the specifications were revealed, pricing and availability were not announced either. That said, the new tablets from LG are not aimed for those looking for the premium specification sheet.
The displays are 1280x800 across the board. Android 4.4.2 KitKat is on tap, powered by quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processors, tuned to 1.2GHz. Each also have 1GB of RAM and microSD card expandable storage. The new G Pads also have the latest features of LG’s Optimus UI, such as the new Knock Code making its way to the recent LG devices, and QPair, which will link the tablet to your LG smartphone.
The G Pad 7.0 is making its way to some retails shelves in parts of Europe this week. Pricing starts in the area of €199 ($270). The 8-inch and 10-inch cousins cannot be far behind. If you have been thinking about grabbing one of these new LG tablets, take a look at all the features in action, from roller skates to hammocks, LG puts on a good show.

Love all the old Qualcomm chips that LG is using. I guess this is one reason OnePlus can't make more than a couple thousand phones... LG has cornered the market on old chips!

Using old chips is not exclusive to LG. And using more high end chips doesn't mean OnePlus is making a loss. They just need to gain customer's devotion to the brand

What OnePlus needs to do is to accept pre-orders (with payment) and start making phones for real.
Otherwise the more time that passes with OnePlus using gimmick after gimmick to hype their phones, make more hunger games, etc., instead of making phones in quantity, the more people will end up going elsewhere.

You don't know for sure they haven't made a couple phones already. They already fixed the software and invitations are now open. Seems more likely they have phones ready for grabs at this point.

Invitations are not open. They just sent out an email saying they were going to make 2500 phones available via their latest gimmick, "Storm of Invites", where you have to do five things to be eligible for some sort of lottery for an invite.
Last time I looked, there were over 280,000 people who had signed up for these 2500 invites.
All this endless BS instead of accepting pre-orders. Scamming people must be deep in this company's core values.

That video was so freaking bad. If it wasn't featuring a tablet, I would have thought it was straight out of the 80's.

G Pad 8.0 baffles my mind, in a bad way. Compared to last years G Pad 8.3, the resolution got much lower, the device got fatter and still packs a smaller battery. What happend LG? I thought new versions were supposed to be better than the old.

People are loyal to a company as long as they are innovating
