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.

note 8 is more expensive but uglier & weaker

I have the note 8 and I really like it, I seriously wish it had a higher pixel density and that annoying camera hump was absent but other than that it runs smooth and is pretty practical. I only paid $200 for it on craigslist brand new.

Good luck against nexus 7. I think nexus line up is hurting all these android tablets because they cant sell a product with great specs without losing money.

The price will drop very quickly to $299 at most B&M shops and I suspect there will be rebate deals as well. Considering a slightly bigger screen, bigger battery, and a microSD slot, it's a pretty good buy once it hits below $300 price point.

One day all of these manufacturer's will get it, but until then this is what you get. LG drops it's slate into the line-up and it cost more than than the current Pure Google Nexus 7 starting @ $229, and on top of that it's higher than the ipad mini starting @ $329. If you want to make a mark then this baby should have been priced commensurate to it's surroundings!! DOA is my take.

4.3 alone makes this not worth it, trim is pretty damn important.

its 16:10 not 4.3. And the bezel is pretty thin for a tablet. Looks like this tablet is about the same size as my Blackberry Playbook with its svelte bezels compared to the thick bezels of the PB. As far as the price range of $300-400
