LG's New Android Tablet is...Just Another Android Tablet

By Gerald Lynch on at

With rumours that LG is planning on using next month's IFA conference in Berlin to focus on some eye-popping TV tech, it can be forgiven for taking its eye off the ball elsewhere. Despite increasingly capable hardware, LG's tablet line has never been much of a showstopper. Its latest G Pad, revealed today ahead of the German conference, builds upon its predecessor with solid specs, but has few bells or whistles to help it stand out.

A 10.1-inch full HD 1920 x 1200 device, it's got a quad-core Snapdragon 800 at its heart, beefier than that of its predecessor and (hopefully) more efficient, seeing as LG has dropped the battery capacity down to 7,400mAh. Both LTE and Wi-Fi options will be available, but just a bronze shade in terms of the casing is your only colour option.

With full pricing and availability to be revealed at IFA, LG says to expect the cost to be broadly similar to its last G Pad, which hovered between the £230 and £250 marks. We'll forgive you for not holding your breath. [LG]
