LG has said that its G Pad tablet, first introduced last month, will be available in the United Kingdom in time for the holiday shopping season. The company yesterday announced that the G Pad will be available across the UK and Ireland via an exclusive partnership with Micro P in the UK and Harvey Norman in Ireland. The device is priced at £259.99 and will arrive at the end of October.
"The introduction of the LG G Pad 8.3 is another great step in design and technology from LG and shows that the G Series is going from strength to strength," said Andy Coughlin, Head of Mobile for LG UK. "Just like the LG G2, the G Pad 8.3 delivers cutting-edge technology in a slim and sleek form, and is just the product for our re-entry into the UK tablet market."
The G Pad packs an 8.3-inch 1920x1200 display, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 chip clocked to 1.7 GHz, 2 GB of LPDDR2 RAM, 16 GB of storage, 1 5-megapixel camera around the back, a 1.3-megapixel camera up front, a 4,600 mAh battery Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
