LG G Pad tablet range starts shipping this week

Having announced them earlier this year, LG has started to roll out its G Pad range of Android tablets, starting with the 7-inch model this week, followed by 8- and 10.1-inch models in the coming weeks.

All three tablets have very similar specifications, with the only real difference being their screen sizes and resolution. The tablets are powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM.

The 7-inch model has a resolution of 1280 x 800 and 8GB of storage, which can be increased thanks to a microSD card slot. The two larger models have the same screen resolution, but each come with a more practical 16GB of storage.

The range also differ by their quality of cameras. The G Pad 7.0 has a 3-megapixel snapper on the back and a 1.3-mp camera on the front; inside there’s a 4,000mAh battery. The G Pad 8.0 and 10.1 have the same front cameras, but get improved 5-mp sensors on the back. These to have batteries of 4,200mAh and 8,000mAh respectively.

All three models can be had in black, white, red, orange and blue, and they all feature LG’s Knock Code, where a pattern of between two and eight taps can be used to wake and unlock the device, replacing a password or PIN.

Through QPair 2.0 the G Pads can be used to take calls from a Bluetooth-connected smartphone on the tablet itself.

Prices for the three tablets are not yet known.
