Following the successful launch of G Pad 8.3 , LG is expanding its portfolio of G Pad series of tablets. LG has announced today the addition of three new tablets to its G Pad series. These three tablets are? G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1. These tablets will be unveiled at the MedPI 2014 IT/Tech trade show in Europe, which is taking place in Monaco from May 13-16.
The newly announced tablets will have 7 inches, 8 inches and 10.1 inches display. LG has not provided any further hardware details of these tablets and informed in its press statement that further details and availability schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.
According to LG, the latest G Pad tablets will include LG’s proprietary UX features such as QPair 2.0 and Knock Code. 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. The Knock Code feature 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.
“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.”
