    Late last week, a leak attempted to reveal Verizon's plans for adding a couple new tablets to its roster, mentioning both the LG G Pad 8.3 and the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 in the context of a March 6 launch. With just a couple days to go until then, today Verizon has gone official with its announcement of the LTE-capable G Pad 8.3, while we've still yet to get any confirmation on the Samsung tablet. Verizon's going to be the exclusive carrier home of the G Pad 8.3 LTE in the States, and it's welcoming the tablet with a short sale, making it available on-contract for just about $100 from ...

    Samsung's Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 may be a serious tablet heavyweight, but it's also got a premium sticker price to match, selling for $750 on up. If you've been hoping that a carrier subsidy might be a nice way to bring that figure down a little you're in luck, as we've already seen evidence of a Verizon-branded NotePRO 12.2 leak. But when might such a device actually arrive? If we're to believe a new leak, it could be just one week away, with launch dates revealed for both the NotePRO 12.2, as well as LG's Android tablet. As you can see below, this message indicates that Verizon's preparing ...

    Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand.

    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 ...

    As we told you a little earlier today, the mysterious LG V510 no longer seemed much like the rumored Nexus 8 we talked about on Monday, and the tablet instead was looking to be a Google Play Edition of the G Pad 8.3, the first-such tablet to take the honor. While the evidence was very strong, we still expected this one to remain unofficial for a little while longer, prior to going up for sale. As it turns out, however, this tablet has some serious momentum to it, and just a day after popping up on our radar, and hours after the picture becoming clear, the GPE LG G Pad 8.3 has landed in the ...

    Yesterday we told you about the LG V510, an unknown device that showed up in a file labeled as a “Google open” model. We knew the G Pad 8.3 was LG's model V500, so speculation quickly turned to the idea of a mid-sized Nexus tablet – a Nexus 8, if you will – to complement the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. Well, it hasn't taken long at all for the truth of the matter to come to light, and today we learn that the LG V510 isn't a new Nexus model at all, but instead may be the very first Google Play Edition tablet. The answer comes as straight from the horse's mouth as you can get it: it's ...

    The LG G Pad 8.3, announced just before IFA 2013, but on display at LG's booth in Berlin, will wear a price tag of $299, according to a recent report from China. Considering everything LG packed inside its relatively thin slate, this will be a rather attractive price for many out there looking for a fast Android tablet. As we mentioned in our hands-on video, the slate represents LG's comeback in the tablet game. The G Pad 8.3 packs an 8.3-inch display with 1920 x 1200 resolution, and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, helped by 2GB of RAM. The main camera is one of ...

    We've been bringing you our best quality mobile-tech podcast once a week for over a year now, and we're not about to break that streak on one of the biggest tech weeks of the year. Sure, we might've missed our usual Wednesday/Thursday time slot, and we might've even technically missed the weekend dividing line, depending on what time zone you're in - but you know what? We've just capped off four days of intense video coverage with a midnight podcast from one of the most echo-filled hotel rooms in all of Berlin, and we're uploading it through the technological equivalent of a 1999-era AOL ...

    LG's return to the tablet market sure isn't happening during any kind of lull; instead, LG's going to have some very serious competition facing it, and in the eight-inch space, that's sure to include Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0, released earlier this year. This match-up's particularly interesting due to each tablet having its own set of attractive qualities, with neither immediately obvious as the technically superior choice. For instance, LG's got a killer 1920 x 1200 resolution compared to the Note's 1280 x 800, but Samsung has the benefit of its S Pen stylus and all the software built to ...

    Plenty of manufacturers are getting a head start on the IFA by making their product announces a little early, as was the case over the weekend with LG and its new tablet. LG's been out of the tablet game for quite a while now, but it's finally time to do something about that, and the arrival of its G Pad 8.3 is reintroducing LG to the market. Of course, tablets have come a long way during LG's hiatus, but the company definitely seems like it's getting back into things with its feet running, delivering the G Pad 8.3 with respectively modern specs like a 1920 x 1200 8.3-inch display, ...

    It's been more than two years since LG did anything arguably significant on the tablet market and recent LG G Pad rumors tried to anticipate it's 2013 IFA product unveiling. IFA is still about a week away but the South Koreans officially announced the LG G Pad 8.3. LG brags about the phablet packing the first Full HD screen on an eight-inch form factor. The slate is equipped with a 1.7GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, has an 8.3-inch WUXGA (1920 x 1200) display with a PPI rating of 273 PPI, and has 16GB of internal storage in addition to 2GB of RAM. There's a ...
