LG briefly teased the tablet market when it released the Optimus Tab. The tablet series ran on Android 3.0 Honeycomb. However, it did not create as much impact. Despite the first setback, LG is not planning on stopping their venture into the sector. The company just recently hinted it will be releasing the G Pad 8.3.
Can it give Nexus 7, iPad and Asus Eee Pad a run for their money?
In the tech particularly the tablet sector, people never know when a new release would become an instant hit. Leading players like Apple and Samsung enjoy a certain advantage for having well known products but competitors like Sony and Asus proved that quality products do the trick. LG seems to be taking notes and the company just made the announcement that it will release a tablet soon.
The announcement came through a teaser video posted by the company on YouTube.
The video centers on the feedback from different consumers. The existing customers were asked what they wish to see in a tablet product. The "man on the street" format showed short interviews centering on sharing their sentiments over travelling but not being comfortable with their device. Others noted that their tablet was difficult to work with or slow.
The teaser video is entitled "LG G Pad 8.3: Teaser Film." It is the official confirmation from the Korea-based tech company they are not just looking into smartphones . Consumers should not be surprised to see the company trying their luck into the tablet market as it is a very lucrative venture these days and for the coming quarters. Whether LG will succeed or not will depend after the release of their second generation of tabs.
Taking note of the date the video was released and the upcoming IFA conference where Samsung and other big names will be launching their new products, LG will most likely launch their newest tablet during the same event. There is nothing like making a big splash with the world's attention along with your competitors. It should be the perfect venue for the tech manufacturer to unveil their G Pad 8.
Rumored specs for the LG G Pad 8.3 include 1920 x 1200 resolution, optional LTE connectivity and a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor. There are resources saying that it may not just be the tablet that LG has in store during the event. A smartwatch and a new phone may also be unveiled.
