Perhaps taking a page from Samsung’s Galaxy Tab
playbook (“Let’s give them all the form factors!”), LG
announced a trio of new G Pad
tablets at 7-, 8-, and 10.1 inches. The tablets will be unveiled in full at the MedPI 2014 trade show in Monaco on May 13-16.
“Unlike smartphones, tablets are not one size fits all,” said LG president and CEO Dr. Jong-seok Park. “So we designed the G Pad Series for a diverse target audience, some who prioritize portability while others want the best multimedia experience possible. G Pad delivers on all counts.”
There isn’t much available yet in terms of specs or pricing, but LG did say that the tablets will feature QPair 2.0 (a means of connecting to an Android
smartphone via Bluetooth) as well as Knock Code, a feature that lets users unlock their devices with a “knock” pattern that works on any part of the display.
