LG announces the G Pad 10.1

I do love my phone, but there are times that a tablet really kills it!  When it comes to tablets, I do like the 'mid-size' range.  My Note 8 is just about perfect.  And I really loved the G Pad 8.3.

But there are still a lot of users who liked to have something 'full size', and LG has released the bigger brother to the 8.3" size... the G Pad 10.1.

Now when I say 'bigger brother', it's really only in terms of size.  Bigger screen size also means a bigger battery.

However, everything else gets reduced.

Here's the specs:

10.1" @ 1280x800
1.2GHz x4 w/ 1GB RAM
16GB storage + microSD
4.4.2 Kit Kat
8000mAh
I'm somewhat disappointed by the screen.  Sure it may not need to be the top end qHD of the G3... but to have it have less resolution than the G Pad 8.3... and way less processing and RAM.  Sorely disappointed.  Good thing I'm not a fan of that size.  It does line up with the 8.0 and 7.0 devices that were available in Europe earlier this year (I'm guessing the G Pad 8.3 is a premium line... needs a different name)

Here's hoping that the price is truly matching the specs.
