LG's G Pad 8.3 comes to Verizon this week

New, 6 comments

LG's G Pad 8.3 will be available from Verizon Wireless starting this Thursday, March 6th. The Android tablet will be available at a variety of price points depending on the service plan attached to it, with the lowest price being $99.99 with a two-year agreement until March 10th (after that, the price rises to $199.99). If you decide to forgo the contract, Verizon will sell you the tablet for $299.99, which is surprisingly lower than the $349.99 price tag of the Wi-Fi only model.

The G Pad 8.3 is an impressive Android tablet with solid construction and a great display. Verizon's version will have LG's software customizations and interface, unlike the model sold in the Google Play Store that runs a standard version of Android 4.4 KitKat. We preferred the Google Play Edition in our review of the device, but Verizon's cheaper LTE-equipped model could be compelling enough to put up with LG's less-than-likeable software.
