LGGPLTE-Thumb

We received a tip last week suggesting that Verizon Wireless planned to release the LG G Pad 8.3 with LTE (or the LGGPLTE for short, differentiating it from the LGGPGPE) on March 6th. Today, that leak's been confirmed. Verizon has announced that the tablet will launch on said day for $99.99 with a new two-year activation, with this price lasting for the first four days of availability. After that, it will go up to $199.99.

This is largely the same device we're already familiar with, just with an LTE radio and a Verizon logo where the LG one used to be. At least the carrier's branding isn't too intrusive. Actually, until we get a look at the back, we can't be certain.

In the tip, we also received word of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 arriving on the same day. Verizon has yet to announce anything, but we're keeping our eyes open.
