AT&T expands its tablet lineup with the addition of the LG G Pad 7.0. This is the cheapest and the smallest tablet in LG’s G Pad family. It will be available on the carrier’s LTE network starting Friday, August 8th. AT&T isn’t the only carrier that offers tablets from LG. The company’s G Pad 8.3 tablet is being sold by Verizon and only yesterday Big Red pushed out the much awaited Android 4.4 KitKat update for it.
Now this tablet is no powerhouse so don’t expect the specifications to blow you away. LG has positioned the G Pad 7.0 to take on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab models in this particular range and it appears to do that very well.
The G Pad 7.0 has a 1.2Ghz Qualcomm processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage, with the option to expand externally using a microSD card. Apart from a 4,000mAh battery the tablet has a 3 megapixel rear camera and a 1,280×800 pixel resolution display.
Going on sale this Friday, the tablet costs $149.99 with a new line of service and a conventional two year contract. To buy it outright the customer would have to pay $249.99. AT&T also offers the tablet at equal monthly payments for $12.50 per month for 20 months. There’s a $0.99 bundle on offer if the tablet is purchased along with a LG G3 or LG G Flex smartphone from AT&T.
