LG brings out the G Pad III 8.0 for $240

Way back when, I tested out the LG G Pad 8.3, the original, and it was awesome.  Glorious was one of the words I think I used.  Then there came the G Pad 2 8.0 and it lacked some of the oomph that the original had.

Now there's a G Pad III 8.0 and although it's not packing as high as the big flagships, it's no slouch either.  Then again, it's also only $240 via Rogers or Fido

So what does it have?

  • 8.0" @ 1920x1080
  • Snapdragon 617 octacore
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB
  • 5MP / 5MP
  • 4800mAh
  • LTE
  • Android 6.0.1

Somewhat oddest of all it includes a full USB port.

Whether that's for a mouse/keyboard/storage drive (like shown, hopefully that take the place of a microSD option) ... I don't know what I'd use that for on a daily basis.  But interesting to say the least.

For >$250 it's an interesting tablet to say the least.
