A new LG tablet has been launched today and is expected to go head-to-head with the recently-awarded T3 Tablet of the Year, the iPad Mini. The new G Pad 8.3 tablet from LG is set to join other tablets from known Apple rivals in dethroning iPad Mini as the leading 7-inch tablet in the market today. This launching of a new rival tablet for the iPad Mini is just few weeks away from the expected debut of a revamp iPad lineup including an improve mini version from Apple.
Better Screen Display Against iPad Mini’s Outdated Panel
One of the things that this new LG tablet is bragging is its display. The G Pad 8.3 will sport an amazing 1920 x 1200 display resolutions. That would be equal to a whopping 273 pixels per inch. Meanwhile, Apple iPad Mini does not have the retina display which the later versions of the larger iPad have. The iPad Mini’s 7.9-inch screen only supports a 1024 x 768 display resolution which is equivalent to only 163 pixels per inch. Apple’s iPad Mini is really eating dust from its rivals when it comes to the display department. An additional feature will also be included with the new G Pad 8.3. The new LG tablet can enable its users to read and send text messages received by their Android smartphones through the tablet itself so they will be no need for users to bring out their mobile phones. The new G Pad 8.3 will run on an Android 4.2.2 Jellybean OS and will also be available in two colors – black and white.
Low MP Camera, Wi-Fi Only Version Might Dissatisfy Potential Buyers
New tablets released nowadays boast whopping camera megapixels. However, the new G Pad 8.3 will only include a 5MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front camera. On the other hand, the new LG tablet will only be available in Wi-Fi only versions. Other tablet rivals offer a micro-SIM slot that enables mobile browsing thru the SIM even without Wi-Fi. The G Pad 8.3 is also the first tablet from LG since 2011. The company struggled in the mobile device market as they were unable to swiftly adapt with the sudden shift of the industry to smartphones. It may be short in some specs but it will still be an exciting tablet that will put another dagger against the aging iPad Mini.
Aside from the iPad Mini, the new G Pad 8.3 is also expected to go on a tight battle against new Amazon Kindle tablets that were launched in the late September of this year.
