Verizon LG G Pad pictured, still no word on its launch date
Customers who are unhappy with Verizon’s current range of Android tablets should know that the largest US carrier seemingly prepares the launch of at least three new slates. We already showed you the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, both adorned with the Verizon logo (see here and here).

Now, press renders of Verizon’s LG G Pad 8.3 also made an appearance, reconfirming that the tablet - which has a Google Play Edition - is headed to VZW.

Unfortunately, there is still no official word from Verizon on this. However, there’s a date that’s visible on the home screen of the newly-unveiled G Pad: March 27. Could this be the day when the tablet launches at Verizon? Let’s hope we’ll find out soon.

The LG G Pad features a 8.3 inch display with 1200 x 1920 pixels and a 273 ppi density, LTE, 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, and 16GB of expandable storage space. Unlocked, the tablet is currently sold for $349, but we don't know how much Verizon will want to ask for it.

I couldn't agree more, I absolutely love mine. Sold my Galaxy Tab 2 and picked it up not too long ago.

Verizon just needs to calm down with the branding.

Sold my G-PAD. LG is releasing products way too fast. How do you ever have the latest with a company like that? I ordered the new Samsung 10 Tablet with 4G. I am going to use it as a home phone and master control for my house.
