AT&T is eager to let the world know that it will be the first to offer LG's G Pad 7.0 LTE tablet. Beginning August 8, 2014, you'll be able to waltz into an AT&T store (or navigate to AT&T's website), slam your fist on the counter (not too hard, lest you scare someone), and tell the employee on the other side to hook you up with the aforementioned tablet.
There are several pricing options, depending on how you want to roll. You can choose to be billed $12.50 per month with zero down and no annual service contract (wireless service charges apply), plunk down $149.99 and agree to a two-year service agreement, or fork over a measly 99 cents if you bundle the slate with an LG G2, G3, or G Flex smartphone.
The LG G Pad 7.0 LTE is small and light (10.4 ounces) enough to comfortably shove in a purse or suitcase, AT&T says. It has a 7-inch HD+ IPS display using Zero Gap technology, 1.2GHz processor, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 4,000 mAh battery for up to 10 hours of battery life, and Android 4.4 KitKat.
You'll also find some proprietary software bits, including Dual Window and QSlide for multitasking, Quickmemo to type or make handwritten notes on any screen capture or photo, and Knock Code, which is your personal patter on the display to wake it from sleep mode and unlock it at the same time.
