LG EXPANDS TABLET OPTIONS WITH NEW G PAD SERIES
Three New Tablets Satisfy Consumer Demand for More Choices to
Fit Their Lifestyles
SEOUL, May 12, 2014 ― LG Electronics (LG) is adding three new tablets to its G Pad
series to offer more options for tablet users. The new G Pad devices ― G Pad 7.0, G Pad
8.0 and G Pad 10.1 ― will be unveiled at the MedPI 2014, one of the biggest IT/Tech
trade show in Europe, taking place in Monaco from May 13-16. LG’s extended tablet
portfolio, which also includes the well-received G Pad 8.3, will signiﬁcantly expand
LG’s footprint in the tablet market.
“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.”
Highlights of LG’s new G Pad Series tablets are:
● G Pad 7.0: Designed to be held in one hand, LG’s smallest tablet is an on-the-
go entertainment hub that delivers both portability and power.
● G Pad 8.0: With its 8-inch display, LG’s mid-sized tablet offers an immersive
multimedia experience and smooth multitasking.
● G Pad 10.1: With the largest display and battery, LG’s 10.1-inch tablet provides
endless hours of entertainment and fun.
The latest G Pad tablets will also include LG’s proprietary UX features such as QPair 2.0
and Knock CodeTM. With an updated version of QPair, which was ﬁrst introduced on G
Pad 8.3, users can effortlessly connect to their Android-powered smartphones via
Bluetooth to receive notiﬁcations of calls and messages and now be able to respond
directly from the G Pad. What’s more, Knock Code™ enables users to power on and
unlock their LG smartphones in one easy step by entering a personalized “knock” pattern
on the smartphone’s display. Knock Code™ offers convenience and greater security as
the knock pattern can be entered anywhere on the screen in any size ― with the display
on or off ― using a personalized sequence of two to eight taps for more than 80,000
Additional details of LG’s new G Pad tablets including speciﬁcations and availability will
be announced locally in the weeks ahead.
