    When LG announced three new G Pad tablets back in May, it remained mum on specs, peculiarly enough. Today it is finally unveiling the tablets fully, and it's immediately apparent that this lineup is not going to be competing with other high-end tablet offerings anytime soon. The G Pad 7.0 comes with a 7-inch 1280x800 display, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 8GB of internal storage (with microSD expansion capabilities), rear-firing 3MP camera, 4000 mAh battery, and comes in four colors -- black, white, luminous orange, and luminous blue. All that changes between the G Pad 7.0 and the G Pad ...

    Just in case 8.3 inches just isn't your cup of tea, you will soon have more G Pad options from LG. The company will be unveiling its new tablets at MedPI 2014, taking place in Europe over the course of the next few days. In the words of an LG executive, "Customers tell [LG] that they want a wider range of devices that offer sizable screens without compromising portability," so LG went ahead and did just that, pushing out 7.0, 8.0, and 10.1-inch varieties of their newest tablet. Apart from outing the screen sizes, LG has not made clear the specifications of these upcoming devices. We are ...

    Sometimes there's so much news you need to call in the Reserves just to handle it all, and that's just what we've done this week. Between Google's surprise announcement of an unlikely pair of additions to the Google Play Store; Microsoft's rumored offer to pay Samsung to keep making Windows Phones; and a boatload of reviews, we're in over our heads this week - so we've brought in four team members to do the news justice. Sorry, no listener mail this week - but in its place you get a consolation prize: you get to know what curious fate befell that Lumia 2520 we were tinkering with a while ...

    That's right, it's about that time for IFA 2013 to happen, and you can bet we'll be covering every inch of the show floor in Berlin. This has historically been the event for phablets, and a couple of other surprises. Whether it's LG, HTC, Sony or Samsung, there is a lot to expect from this event in both old and new categories. One of these new and emerging categories is the smart watch, and we know the Samsung Galaxy Gear will be a device we'll be covering extensively. Make sure you share your thoughts and predictions on what you expect to see at this event as well, and stay tuned for tons ...

    It's the show that kicks off the fall season in consumer electronics and mobile technology, and we're going to be there, as always, to cover it. But IFA 2013 is next week - and last we checked our Novice's Guide to Chronometry and Basic Time Theory, there's a whole lotta time between this week and next. So let's fill it with speculation. Join Jaime Rivera, Taylor Martin, and Michael Fisher on a whimsical journey into the prospective future, as they bat around rumors and leaks concerning such luminaries as Samsung's Galaxy Note III, LG's new G Pad, a futuristic Galaxy Gear smartwatch, and ...

    LG's G Pad 8.3 tablet has been just on the cusp of going official for days now. We've been expecting to see it at the IFA next week, but the way LG's taken to teasing the product's launch on YouTube, it may have well have already launched. Apparently LG's quite aware of such reactions to that video, because it's immediately following it up with a short announcement, going public with its plans for the tablet. To be fair, though, we're not sure that even this should count as a straight-up "launch." We saw the same sort of pre-launch waffling with the G2, and that comes through again in this ...

    Looks like there's no way around it: the iPad looks like a stretched out iPhone, the Samsung tablets all look like a larger S III or S4, depending on the year, and, if the render above is any indication (or legit), the upcoming LG G Pad will be... a stretched out LG G2. We've been hearing a lot lately about LG's comeback in the tablet market, since the Optimus Pad of 2011, starting with the initial rumor of August 15, and, more recently, a YouTube teaser. IFA 2013 is where it should happen -- we'll be there to see it in person -- and the specs expected on the G Pad are, according to ...

    Is LG just straight-up done with secrets at this point? The G2 was confirmed six ways form Sunday before its official launch event, which came almost like a formality by that point. Lately we've been looking forward to LG's first new tablet in a very long time, and with a recent FCC appearance it was seeming very much real. While it still may have yet to officially debut, LG's once again getting a head start on itself, and has begun teasing the G Pad 8.3 on YouTube. An 8.3-inch size was rumored before, and seemed consistent with the dimensions from that FCC filing, so finally seeing it ...

    For the better part of the summer, we've been fielding rumors suggesting that LG was about to make an overdue return to the tablet game, releasing a new Android model. We've heard a possible name, seeing S Pad show up in some trademark filings, as well as came across a likely model number, with the LG-V500/LG-V507L surfacing on the Bluetooth SIG site. We still don't have the whole picture, but today things really start coming together, with the discovery of the tablet's FCC paperwork. We've got LG model LG-V500 here, and as the schematics make crystal clear, we're looking at a tablet. This ...

    It's been a while since LG threw a slate on the market and even those weren't among the most successful ones. Apparently, the South Korean company is preparing a new tablet, the LG G Pad, to be unveiled in September at IFA 2013 in Berlin, according to reports. Those who claim to have knowledge of details concerning the LG G Pad talk about an 8.3-inch screen with 1920x1200 resolution, a quad-core processor, and 2GB of RAM. Additional rumors talk about a very thin form factor with minimal bezels and an aluminum back for reduced weight. It will allegedly be very pocketable despite the rather ...
