LG G Pad III 8.0 is a new, affordable Android Marshmallow tablet, out now in Canada

LG G Pad III 8.0 is a new, affordable Android Marshmallow tablet, out now in Canada
LG recently released a new Android tablet that comes to succeed the G Pad II 8.0 of 2015, and is unsurprisingly called LG G Pad III 8.0. The new device is currently available only in Canada (via Rogers and Fido), and it's also been announced in South Korea - LG's home country.

Compared to the G Pad II 8.0, the G Pad III 8.0 brings plenty of improvements, starting with the display, which is now an 8-inch one with 1200 x 1920 pixels, instead of the rather low-res 8-inch, 800 x 1280 pixels screen of the older tablet. The G Pad III 8.0 also packs a more powerful processor - an octa-core Snapdragon 617 - more RAM (2 GB), and a beefed up 4800 mAh battery. Furthermore, customers are getting LTE connectivity, 5 MP cameras, and a full size USB port. The new slate measures 210.7 x 124.1 x 7.9 mm, weighs 309 grams, and offers 16 GB of expandable storage space. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is pre-installed, including a Reader Mode - which "can reduce eye fatigue by filtering blue light simply in one-click."

In Canada, both Rogers and Fido are selling the LG G Pad III 8.0 for $240 CAD (about $184 USD) off contract. We wouldn't be surprised to see LG launching the new device in the US for $200. What do you say, is this a tablet that you'd consider buying?
