Last month, Korean manufacturer LG had filed a number of trademark applications in its own country
, including one for G Pad
. And now that we know that the company will be branding only its top-shelf products with the letter "G"
, we are looking forward to finding out what the LG G Pad tablet is all about. Earlier this month the device, which appears to come in two varieties (LG-V500 and LG-V507L), received its Bluetooth Certification
. Just about a week ago, we did learn more about the slate, including information about the 8.3 inch screen carrying a resolution of 1920 x 1200. We also learned that it would be driven by a quad-core processor of unnamed make and speed, and would be equipped with 2GB of RAM. LG previously said that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 would power all of its "G" series smartphones, so we will have to see whether this will extend to tablets as well.
Now, it would appear that LG can draw another line through its tasks list after the LG G Pad paid a visit with the FCC. The LG-V500 was the model that visited the Feds and appears to be the Wi-Fi version of the slate. We don't know if there will be a model with cellular connectivity, but the second model number ends with the letter "L" which we are guessing doesn't stand for lemonade. Yes, it would seem plausible to believe that the LG-V507L will offer LTE connectivity.
There is some speculation that LG will take this tablet out for a spin at IFA 2013 in Berlin early next month. Hopefully we will get a good look at what kind of tablet deserves the "G" brand from LG.
