Taking a page from Samsung’s playbook, LG Electronics is rolling out tablets in multiple sizes. The Korea-based electronics maker on Monday announced that three new tablets are joining its G Pad series.
The company plans to take the lid off the G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1 at MedPI 2014 trade show in Monaco this week. Along with the G Pad 8.3, LG said it expects the new additions to its tablet portfolio to expand its footprint in a competitive market.
Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said.
Here’s a quick rundown of the specs:
G Pad 7.0 to be held in one hand. It’s the company’s smallest tablet positioned as an on-the-go entertainment hub; the
G Pad 8.0 is a mid-size tablet that promises an “immersive multimedia experience”;
The G Pad 10.1 is also marketed as a device for entertainment-minded consumers.
All three tablets include LG’s proprietary user interface features, including QPair 2.0 and Knock Code. First introduced in the G Pad 8.3, an updated QPair lets users connect to their Android-powered smartphones via Bluetooth to receive notifications of calls and messages and respond directly from their G Pads.
Meanwhile, Knock Code lets users power on and unlock their devices by entering personalized “knock” patterns on the display. Knock Code intends to blend convenience with greater security by allowing users to enter sequences of two to eight taps with more than 80,000 possible combinations. Availability will be announced in the coming weeks.
