LG Electronics has launched the G Pad 8.3 tablet that comes with sharper display. The G Pad happens to be the first device in almost two years by the company. The price of G Pad in South Korea is $510 with Wi-Fi variant.
The tab comes with a high-resolution display. With the launch LG has joined the war taking on Apple’s supremacy in the widely appreciated small size tablets. The LG G Pad 8.3 is the first tab from the company in two years as it was struggling to recapture the lost market in mobile handsets as there was a pretty slow response as the market was slowly shifting to Smartphones.
LG Electronics hopes that the latest launch with a sharper display should help them in gaining the much-needed grip as the year comes to an end as the holiday season gets underway. The hope is nothing wrong on the part of LG as Android tabs are having a decent market share as against the iPad.
LG has targeted the launch at a time when Apple has been finding it hard to bring out the latest version of the iPad Mini that comes with HD retina display by the year end. This leaves Apple without gadgets with sharper screens at a time when its rivals do have such devices.
The G Pad 8.3 comes with a resolution of 1,920 X 1,200 at 273 pixels per inch, which is far better than the 7.9-inch iPad Mini from Apple, which has 1,024 X 768 resolution at 163 ppi.
The device will have competition with Amazon’s light versions of Kindle that were brought out in September. The G Pad comes with a feature wherein the users can check as well as send any messages the Android Smartphone receives. The company hopes that the feature will attract more customers and will have a unique function as well.
