G_PAD_022The G Pad is the first tablet to come out of LG since the ill-fated Optimus Pad. LG teased the tablet in a trailer earlier this week on YouTube, and has officially announced the G Pad today. The 8.3-inch tablet is targeted to be an iPad mini rival, and comes with great internal hardware.

“Complementing our G Series smartphones, the introduction of the LG G Pad 8.3 further strengthens LG’s premium lineup consisting of our most cutting-edge devices,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Our G Pad is just another example of LG delivering devices with the unique selling points consumers around the world will appreciate.”

Thanks to its 8.3-inch Full HD Display, user experience (UX) features unique to the LG G Pad 8.3 are maximized for the large screen:

  • Slide Aside enables seamless multitasking by simply “sliding” currently open apps off to the side using a three-finger swipe
  • QSlide controls up to three different apps in one window with no interruption, especially convenient on a large screen
  • KnockON turns the device on and off by tapping the display twice
