The LG G Pad 7.0 and 10.1 tablets, the display sizes of which match the numbers in their names, have been made available by Verizon in the US finally. Available with support for the company’s LTE network, these slates can be purchased at lowered prices which will only stay for a limited period of time, according to the carrier.
The LG G Pad 7.0 costs $249.99 on a contract-free basis, while its price goes down to $49.99 if you decide to sign a two-year agreement with Verizon. The G Pad 10.1 on the other hand, can be snapped up for $299.99 or at $199.99 with a two-year contract. Both can be grabbed now through the network operator’s online and offline stores.
LG unveiled these new tablets back in April this year, in an attempt to ape Samsung’s strategy of outing three different sized slates in the mid-range category ever year. Apart from the two models we’ve mentioned in the space above, there’s also an 8-inch variant with specs similar to those of the other two. It is perhaps a given that we’ll be seeing updated versions of them in the coming year.
Here’s a look at the specs of the LG G Pad 7.0 and 10.1:
– Display: 7-inch – 10.1-inch, 800 x 1280 pixels
– OS: Android 4.4 KitKat
– Processor: 1.2GHz quad core Cortex A7
– Memory: 1GB RAM, 8GB (7-inch) or 16GB storage (10.1-inch)
– Camera: 3.1MP – 1.3MP (7-inch) or 5MP – 1.3MP (10.1-inch)
– Battery: 4000mAh (7-inch) or 8000mAh (10.1-inch)

Like we said, the LTE versions of the LG G Pad 7.0 and 10.1 can both be picked up via Verizon now in exchange of $249.99 and $299.99, respectively. They are expected to be made available by other US carriers soon.
