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!!!
