LG rumored to be developing 8.3-inch,1920x1200-resolution G Pad tablet
LG could be developing a new Android tablet, according to a new rumor. The electronics producer is said to be working on the LG G Pad, a tablet with an 8.3-inch, 1920x1200-resolution display, and would in theory be the latest tablet-format device from the company since it introduced the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291836==http://www.electronista.com/reviews/lg-optimus-pad-and-t-mobile-g-slate.html" rel='nofollow'>8.9-inch Optimus Pad</a> in 2011.<br />
<br />
Sources of <em>Techblog.gr</em> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291833==http://techblog.gr/tablet/lg-g-pad-8-3-inch-display-full-hd-plus-2511/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">state</a> that it will have a quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. In terms of design, it is said to be "very thin and lightweight" with an aluminum backing, and will have a thin bezel which will help it fit into a back pocket, despite the screen size. Though it is said not to have a pen-based input, like the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291834==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/05/pre.ifa.samsung.unpacked.event.to.be.streamed.on.y outube/" rel='nofollow'>Samsung Galaxy Note</a> series, it will apparently have an optional cellular network connection. <br />
<br />
While LG has not let slip any hint of such a tablet, the potential G Pad name fits in with the change of branding in the Optimus line of devices, such as with <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291835==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/08/07/power.volume.control.buttons.13mp.camera.on.rear.o f.lg.g2/" rel='nofollow'>the G2</a>. It is suggested that LG will be showing off the device at the IFA trade show in Berlin early next month.
