15th Oct 2013 | 10:23
Aiming straight at the iPad mini
The LG G Pad 8.3 might not be the most well known tablet on the market, but the mid-size slate will be touching down in the UK soon.
At £259.99 the G Pad 8.3 is just £10 cheaper than the 16GB iPad mini, although on paper the two are relatively evenly matched.
The G Pad 8.3 sports a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera and 4600mAh battery.
That 8.3-inch display rocks a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1200 with 273ppi, smashing the 7.9-inch 1024 x 768, 162ppi offering on the iPad mini and also trumping Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 display (1280 x 800, 189ppi).
Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 is shipped with the G Pad 8.3, while the tablet itself is clad mostly in metal with a plastic rim running round its circumference, measuring 216.8 x 126.5 x 8.3mm and weighing in at 338g.
We are, of course, expecting Apple to launch the iPad Mini 2 next week however, which could well put a spanner in LG's works - we'll just have to wait and see.
- We've already been hands on with the LG G Pad 8.3 and we were really impressed with the tablet, so keep an eye out for our full review soon.
