LG G Pad tablet to sell for $350 in US on Nov. 3

Oct 17, 2013

LG says it will start selling a tablet with a high-definition screen starting Nov. 3 in the U.S. for $350, putting the price in line with Apple and Samsung tablets of similar size.

The G Pad 8.3 was selling for more than $500 in South Korea.

The device has a screen that measures 8.3 inches diagonally. It's in full HD, similar to Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon.com Inc.'s Kindle Fire HDX. Both 7-inch tablets sell for $229.

The resolution on Apple's $329 iPad Mini and Samsung Electronics Co.'s $400 Galaxy Note 8.0, both at about 8 inches, isn't as good as the G Pad. Apple is expected to refresh its iPad lineup next week.

LG Electronics Inc. says the G Pad will be available at BestBuy and other retailers.
