New LG tablet possibly uncovered in Bluetooth database

Back in May, we heard a rumor that LG was returning to the tablet market after a lengthy hiatus. Then just a few weeks ago we saw LG file a whole bunch of new trademarks, and at least one of them – the GPad – sure sounded like it might be the name for a future tablet. Today we get some new evidence which could just point to how this rumored tablet would arrive.

The Bluetooth SIG recently posted a listing for the LG-V500/LG-V507L. While there’s nothing out-and-saying that this is a tablet, the V-series numbering is consistent with how LG has been known to identify tablets, and the product’s description as a “mobile device” rather than anything explicitly phone-related adds support to the tablet theory.

We also get what could be a glimpse into the tablet’s hardware, as the software version number of LAP8064JMR1R130718 might just hint at a Qualcomm SoC sharing that 8064 designation, like a Snapdragon S4 Pro or even a 600.

Given the generally positive reception we’ve seen for the G2, maybe LG has what it takes now to actually stir up some real interest in a tablet.
