LG’s 8.3-inch G Pad tablet may be headed to Verizon stores in the near future according to Twitter tipster @evleaks, who has a knack for digging up this kind of information before anyone else. The latest rumor follows a claim earlier this weak, again from @evleaks, that Verizon would also be adding the Nexus 7 to its arsenal of LTE tablets.
The LG G Pad comes equipped with an 8.3-inch 1200 x 1920-pixel LCD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, a 4600mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with microSD support, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.3-megapixel secondary shooter. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly out of the box—though Verizon could ship the device with a more recent version of the OS—and features LG’s own customized UI on top.
There’s a lot to like about the G Pad, from its sleek design to its beautiful screen. LG’s bloatware can be overbearing for some, however, so we also recommend checking out the Google Play edition, which ships with stock Android 4.4 KitKat for $349.99, though it’s possible Verizon will offer a discount if you opt for a data plan with your new tablet.
LG G Pad headed to Verizon.
