LG re-entering tablet game?
More rumors about an LG tablet, dubbed the LG G Pad, popped up again when sources came forward claiming they've held the device in their hands.
Allegedly, the LG G Pad is an 8.3-inch tablet with an impressive 1920 x 1200 display, putting it in the upper echelons of screen quality.
Interestingly, the G Pad was also said to have cell capabilities with support for call-enabled SIM cards.
The G report
According to the sources, the G Pad (please let it have a different name) is extremely thin and light, with a small side bezel, and fits easily into back pockets - which for an 8.3-inch tablet is nigh unbelievable, so take that with a side of salt.
The G Pad reportedly also sports a quad-core processor and 2GB of memory, but that's where the details stop.
Overall the G Pad was compared to the Nexus 7, only slightly larger.
What up, G
The G Pad name first surfaced last month, when LG filed listings for "G"-branded devices like a G Watch, G Band, G Hub, G Glass, and G Link.
The G Pad and G Watch are easy to figure, but whatever the rest of those products are remains a mystery.
Thankfully, PhoneArena reported that the G Pad, at least, will be unveiled at IFA 2013 next month, so we may not have to wait much longer to find out.
