Following the September release of the mid-range LG G Pad X2 8.0 Plus on T-Mobile, LG and Sprint soft-launched the entry-level LG G Pad F2 8.0. Like its T-Mobile counterpart, the F2 8.0 can connect with pogo pins to the Plus Pack to gain an additional 4,400mAh battery, a full-size USB port, and 2x2W speakers (plus a kickstand). Read More
After plenty of rumors that LG would be releasing a new tablet sometime soon, we caught our first glimpse of the LG G Pad X2 8.0 Plus last month when T-Mobile posted a support page for the device ahead of schedule. It listed most of the main specs for the mid-ranger and even had a couple of images, giving us a good look at the Plus Pack attachment. The tablet is now official, and you can get it from T-Mobile's site for $240. Read More
A couple of weeks ago we spotted LG's new G Pad II 8.0, at that point announced exclusively for the company's home market of South Korea. The hardware is underwhelming at best: despite some interesting features like a full-sized USB port and a stylus, many were put off by the pokey Snapdragon 210 processor and 1.5GB of RAM. Fortunately, it looks like LG isn't going to go for the lowest common denominator with all its forthcoming tablets. The G Pad II 10.1, announced today, has a little more oomph to its hardware.
To begin with, it uses a 1920x1200 screen, which has become essentially the lowest point of entry for 10-inch tablets at this point (no matter what Samsung says). Read More
Newegg wants to give you a good deal on the LG G Pad 8.3, as we posted yesterday. But strangely, they're giving an even better price to customers who peruse the company's official eBay outlet: $199.99, a full $25 off of the Newegg sale price. This is the same standard LG G Pad 16GB Wi-Fi model, sold new, and only available in black. Why eBay buyers get a better deal we couldn't say, but it looks like cheap things come to those who wait.
The eBay listing has free economy shipping, and only buyers in California, Indiana, New Jersey, and Tennessee pay sales tax. Read More
LG announced the new G Pad tablets a while back, but they're still hard to come by in the US. However, the largest member of LG's new mid-range family is probably in stock at a Best Buy near you (or shipped), and it's pretty cheap at $250. It's no Shield Tablet, but no one would blame you for picking one up.
