Leaked Service Manual shows the LG-V510 as being an LG G Pad 8.3 variant
You might recall the LG-V510, a mystery device that received its Bluetooth certification in late October. At the time, it was thought that this could be the oft-rumored Nexus 8 tablet. Now, a leaked Service Manual reveals that the tablet could very well be related to the LG G Pad 8.3 (which is the LG-V500 by the way) which was something that seemed likely after the leaked Bluetooth certification.

The Service Manual, which was spotted in China, reveals that the LG-V510 will feature an 8.3 inch panel with a resolution of 1200 X 1920. Also on board is 2GB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing snapper and a 1.3MP front-facing camera, all powered by a 4600mAh cell. The dimensions of the device also happen to match those of the Nexus 8 (216.8 x 126.5 x 8.3 mm).

Unfortunately, we should add that the word Nexus is not seen in the Service Manual at all and it does not appear on photographs of the device in the manual. If you're a betting man, or woman, you'd probably put your money down on this being a variant of LG's current 8.3 inch slab.
