LG Electronics has announced the launch of three new tablets, starting with the G Pad 7.0 rolling out in Europe this week, followed by the G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1 over the next several weeks.
All three tablets will offer a 1.2 GHz Quad-Core processor, 1GB RAM and a True IPS HD display (1280 x 800).
The tablets also include the new QPair 2.0 facility, which provides convergence between Android-powered tablets and smartphones via a Bluetooth connection. Users can receive notifications of calls and messages on a smartphone and respond directly from the G Pad.
To encourage the creation of apps that make optimal use of this integration, the QPair 2.0 Software Development Kit (SDK) is now available for download from LG Developer website. With the SDK, developers can create apps that let users stream online media and change settings on the G Pad remotely from any Android smartphone.
Smart Keyboard and Dual Window will be also included in the tablet trio. As a key adaptive technology featured on LG's latest G3 flagship smartphone, Smart Keyboard reduces input errors by up to 75 percent by tracking and analyzing typing habits and intuitively "knowing" what word the user intended to type. Dual Window can split the screen and run two applications at the same time, making multitasking easier than ever.
Price and additional availability details will be announced locally.
