LG Releasing Three New G Pad Models   lg g pad 7 8 10 press release 500x306

Fans of LG’s G Pad line of tablets will be happy to know that three more models are on their way – the G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0, and the G Pad 10.1. As you no doubt guessed, the numbers correspond to the size of the tablets, which will be officially unveiled at MedPI 2014 in Monaco this week.

The G Pad 7.0 has the distinction of being LG’s smallest tablet and is designed to be held in one hand. The G Pad 10.1 sits at the opposite end, offering a lot of bang for your buck. The G Pad 8.0 is in danger of suffering middle child syndrome.

According to President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company Dr. Jong-seok Park, the three new tablets are a direct response to customers wanting a wider range of options when choosing their tablet. As Park points out, whereas smartphones are basically one size fits all, the same can’t be said about tablets.

Each new G Pad tablet will come equipped with LG’s proprietary UX features like QPair 2.0 and Knock Code. The technical specs of the tablets will be released in the next few weeks.

The G Pad 8.3 was well-received when it was released last year and LG is no doubt hoping to replicate to the same sort of success with these three new tablets. Check out the full press release below.

LG EXPANDS TABLET OPTIONS WITH NEW G PAD SERIES MODELS

Three New Tablets Satisfy Consumer Demand for More Choices to Fit Their Lifestyles

SEOUL, May 12, 2014 — LGElectronics (LG) is adding three new tablets to its G Pad series to offer more options for tablet users. The new G Pad devices — G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1 — will be unveiled at the MedPI 2014, one of the biggest IT/Tech trade show in Europe, taking place in Monaco from May 13-16. LG’s extended tablet portfolio, which also includes the well-received G Pad 8.3, will significantly expand LG’s footprint in the tablet market.

“Customers tell us that they want a wider range of devices that offer sizable screens without compromising portability,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Unlike smartphones, tablets are not one size fits all. 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.”

Highlights of LG’s new G Pad Series tablets are:

● G Pad 7.0 : Designed to be held in one hand, LG’s smallest tablet is a non-the-go entertainment hub that delivers both portability and power.

● G Pad 8.0 : With its 8-inch display, LG’s mid-sized tablet offer san immersive multimedia experience and smooth multitasking.

● G Pad 10.1 : With the largest display and battery, LG’s 10.1-inch tablet provides endless hours of entertainment and fun.

The latest G Pad tablets will also include LG’s proprietary UX features such as QPair 2.0 and Knock CodeTM. With an updated version of QPair, which was first introduced on G Pad 8.3, users can effortlessly connect to their Android-powered smartphones via Bluetooth to receive notifications of calls and messages and now be able to respond directly from the G Pad. What’s more, Knock Code™ enables users to power on and unlock their LG smartphones in one easy step by entering a personalized “knock” pattern on the smartphone’s display. Knock Code™ offers convenience and greater security as the knock pattern can be entered anywhere on the screen in any size — with the display on or off — using a personalized sequence of two to eight taps for more than 80,000 possible combinations.

Additional details of LG’s new G Pad tablets including specifications and availability will be announced locally in the weeks ahead.
