LG has announced three new tablets that will be launching at a trade show in Europe that is happening May 13-16. The new tablets fall into the G Pad range and include the G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0, and G Pad 10.1. The G Pad 7.0 is designed to be held in one hand and is the smallest tablet in the line.


The G Pad 8.0 has an 8-inch screen and is a mid-size unit aimed at multimedia and multitasking. The last of the three tablets is the G Pad 10.1 and it promises long battery life for multimedia viewing. All of the tablets will include QPair 2.0 and Knock Code tech.

That QPair technology allows the tablets to be paired to Android smartphones via Bluetooth and to respond to calls and messages from the tablet. Knock Code allows the tablet to be unlocked by knocking on the screen.

"Customers tell us that they want a wider range of devices that offer sizable screens without compromising portability," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "Unlike smartphones, tablets are not one size fits all. So we designed the G Pad Series for a diverse target audience, some who prioritize portability while others want the best multimedia experience possible. G Pad delivers on all counts."
