LG’s new Android tablets are starting to hit the streets. You can already pick up an LG G Pad 7.0 in the United States for about $150, and now the company says the G Pad 10.1 will hit the streets later in July.
The tablet has mediocre specs, but like the 7 inch model it’ll probably be reasonably priced — and LG is playing up the tablet’s software which includes features from the company’s flagship smartphone, the LG G3.
The G Pad 10.1 features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, an 8000mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.
It comes in black or red, measures 0.35 inches thick and weighs about 1.2 pounds.
The tablet sports LG software including support for Knock Code (which lets you unlock the device by tapping a pattern on the screen), dual window support for apps, and the ability to snap a selfie without tapping the screen by squeezing your free hand into a fist while it’s in the frame to start a 3-second countdown.
LG’s QPair app also lets you pair the tablet with a nearby phone and answer calls on your tablet.
I’m of the opinion that 1GB of RAM is unacceptable on an Android tablet of 10 inches in size these days. They skimped on almost everything else (though the Snapdragon 400 is more than adequate for a mid-range device with only 720p resolution), but they shouldn’t have skimped on the RAM.
Sorry, should have read 8000
Damm another trekkie
Could someone maybe instead put out a phone/tablet that instantly explodes, killing the user when they try to take a selfie?
Humanity isn’t ready yet, but one day we will take our place among the enlightened races of the galaxy and will no longer have a need for selfies. Until then, your plan sounds like the best option.
