LG G Pad reportedly headed to Verizon
Not long after we reported that Verizon would release the Nexus 7 2013 soon, now we’re hearing that the largest US mobile carrier may also launch LG’s latest Android tablet, namely the G Pad 8.3.
According to @evleaks, the LG G Pad is “headed to Verizon”, although he doesn’t say exactly when the tablet will be available.
Since the unlocked version of the G Pad costs $349.99, we’re expecting Verizon to offer it for an attractive price on contract.
Last month, the LG G Pad officially became the first Google Play Edition tablet, so it’s clear that Google believes this is a solid product. Sure enough, our own LG G Pad review confirms: it is a good tablet.
While the G Pad Google Play Edition was launched with Android 4.4 KitKat on board, the regular version of the tablet still runs Android Jelly Bean. But maybe it will be updated to KitKat before Verizon releases it.
Sporting an 8.3-inch IPS display with 1200 x 1920 pixels (273 ppi), the LG G Pad features LTE, NFC, 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support (up to 64GB), and a 4,600 mAh battery.
