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 March 6 through March 10. After that, the on-contract G Pad 8.3 will run you more like $200.

Maybe the most interesting bit about this announcement is the off-contract price, with Verizon puts at just $300. While not by much, that is slightly cheaper than we’ve been seeing the WiFi-only version of the tablet go for at retail (which has been more in the $320-$350 range).

Seeing this announcement certainly adds support to the validity of last week’s leak, but also has us concerned over the NotePRO 12.2’s fate; unless Verizon only confirms the tablet the very day it goes up for sale, we could well be looking at a short delay before it’s similarly ready to join Verizon’s stable of devices.
