LG G Pad 8.3 Teased In Short Film
[ Technology]

LG has made a small comeback in the past year thanks to its partnership with Google on the Nexus 4. It’s now hoping to make a similar impact on the mobile industry with a new flagship smartphone – the LG G2. Of course, it wouldn’t be a comeback without a new tablet as well, and LG has that.

In a new video teaser released today, LG announced that a new tablet called the G Pad 8.3 is in the works. The teaser doesn’t show the hardware as it instead opts to interview a bunch of random people about what they want out of a tablet. We learn that people want a small, but not too small, tablet that can be used indoors and outdoors for work and play. In short, it sounds like people want any of the broad range of 7 to 8-inch tablets currently on the market.

The video doesn’t give us any idea of what to expect from the G Pad 8.3, but rumors from SlashGear spill the beans on what the supposed specs of the device are. The publication reports that the G Pad 8.3 will feature a 1920×1200 display that’s powered by a quad-core CPU and 2GB of RAM. In short, the the G Pad 8.3 will probably perform similarly to the new Nexus 7.

So, when can we expect to see LG unveil its latest tablet? We’re likely to see it at IFA 2013 next month. A number of other tech companies will likely be showing off new tablets as well so we’ll get a good idea of how G Pad 8.3 stacks up against the competition.

    Another impressive tablet to launch this month is the Pipo M7 Pro($255) which features a larger 8.9 inch display with 1900X1200 screen resolution that uses advanced Samsung PLS technology, along with a Quad core processor, and built in GPS navigation — and is packed with features that compare to the LG – G — with premium speakers, WiFi with both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz frequencies for greater connection, a 6300 mAh battery, and a choice of using standard Android O/S or a Windows style User Interface that makes the Android experience much more intuitive and easier to use — a 3G HSPA+ edition is also available for $30 more.

    One other new tablet to launch next week is the Novo 7 EOS £119($189) — with a key advantage is it features both Internet data access and Voice Calling function through any GSM Wireless carrier… with a built-in SIM card slot that provides 3G HSPA+ connection and an Android phone SIM card maybe used interchangeably with both phone and tablet. The new Novo 7 EOS is made by Ainol Electronics, which won runner-up for Best-Tablet-of-the-Year at CES 2012 — and features a 7-inch HD screen (1280×800) like the Kindle Fire, along with 16GB Memory, Bluetooth wireless connection to headsets and printers, a 2 Megapixel webcam & 5 Megapixel rear camera, HDMI, Google Play and a 4400 mAh battery. The Novo 7 EOS may not offer 4G speeds but overall is sufficient for most needs and doesn’t cost $350-$500 — which is price range of 4G-enabled tablets.
