LG puts G Pad 8.3 on sale in South Korea, reaching US within weeks
LG has put its G Pad 8.3 <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295685==http://social.lge.co.kr/newsroom/mc/pad_1007/" rel='nofollow'>on sale</a> in South Korea, ahead of its release to the rest of the world. The G Pad 8.3, launched <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295686==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/09/01/lg.set.to.roll.out.g.pad.83.in.q4/" rel='nofollow'>early last month</a>, sports a better-than 1080p 1920x1200 WUXGA display powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. <br />
<br />
On the back of the 338-gram (11-ounce) tablet is a 5-megapixel camera, matched with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing version, with power supplied by a 4,600mAh battery, Wi-Fi, and Miracast support. LG takes advantage of the large display by adding Slide Aside, which switches between open apps with a three-finger swipe, and Qslide for up to three different apps to run simultaneously. Qmemo and KnockON also make an appearance, as does Android 4.2.2, though <em>Pocket-Lint</em> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295687==http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/124147-lg-g-pad-8-3-goes-on-sale-in-korea-promised-for-europe-before-the-end-of-the-year" rel='nofollow'>writes</a> that it should in theory get Android 4.3 in the near future in order to use Bluetooth 4.0 LE. <br />
<br />
Available in black and white versions, the LG G Pad 8.3 costs 550,000 won ($513), and will be reaching North America and Europe in the coming weeks.
