The G Pad 7.0 features a 1280 x 800 pixel display, a Qaulcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, and Android 4.4 KitKat software.
The tablet is one of three new budget tablets from LG. Models with 8 and 10 inch displays are also on the way.
All three models have the same screen resolution, processor, and share most other specs — but the larger tablets will have bigger batteries, more storage, and higher-resolution cameras as well as bigger screens.
Still, at $149, the cheapest model might be the most attractive since it combines decent (but hardly spectacular) specs with a pretty good price: for the price of a refurbished 2012 Nexus 7 you can buy a brand new LG G Pad 7.0.
The tablet features 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a 4000mAh battery. It has a 3MP rear camera and 1.3MP front-facing camera.
LG’s larger tablets will feature 5MP rear cameras, 16GB of stroage, and the 8 inch model has a 4200mAh battery while the 10 inch LG G Pad 10.1 has an 8000mAh battery.
I haven’t seen the 8 or 10 inch models in any stores in the US yet.
