LG G PAD 10.1 TO BEGIN AUSTRALIAN ADVENTURE
SYDNEY, 23 July, 2014 - ‘Connected living’ is a common expression in the consumer electronics industry, and nowhere is the pursuit of this more apparent than at LG. With the arrival of the critically acclaimed G3 smartphone close to Australian shores, LG Australia (LG) today announced the availability of its much anticipated LG G Watch, and with it, the August arrival of its latest and definitely greatest tablet, the LG G Pad 10.1.
Given the game-changing nature of the aforementioned devices, you might be expecting the LG G Pad 10.1 to be packed full of simple yet smart technology wrapped up in sleek, sophisticated design… and you would be right on the money, actually.
The LG G Pad 10.1 is an impressive tablet that has been created with both the user and the idea of ‘connected living’ capability at its core. Borrowing some of the impressive new features of the soon-to—be-released LG G3 smartphone and developing a few extra of its own, the tablet offers consumers an incredible multimedia experience.
WHAT’S THE NEW G PAD PACKING?
The LG G Pad 10.1 is designed for on-the-go media consumption. Just check out the expansive In-Plane Switching (IPS) display whilst marvelling at the 8,000mAh battery, and you’ll get an idea of how the tablet has been created to offer hours of visually epic entertainment. What really raises the profile of this tablet, however, are the advanced user-experience (UX) features.
Making connectivity more convenient, QPair 2.0 software provides convergence between the Android-powered tablet and smartphones via a simple Bluetooth connection. Essentially, it extends some of your smartphone’s functionality to the tablet, allowing you, for example, to receive notifications of calls and messages on the tablet.
Power-on and unlock in one quick step with this popular and acclaimed security feature. With the new LG G Pad 10.1, up to four users can register their knock patterns. So while the tablet can be shared (and let’s face it, sharing is caring), your personal information, documents and pictures are all kept private.
Touch & shoot:
Tapping anywhere on the display will focus and activate the shutter in a single step, saving time and securing that once-in-a-lifetime shot.
Gesture-shot for selfies:
Like the G3, simply clenching your free hand into a fist within the shot frame will automatically begin a three-second countdown before snapping the picture for a perfectly posed photo – which is ideal for selfies.
Helps to reduce input errors by tracking and analysing typing habits and intuitively ‘knowing’ what word the user intends to type. You can also adjust the height and keyboard layout to fit your hand size.
Splits the tablet screen and runs two applications at the same time, dragging and dropping content from one window to the other for effortless multitasking.
WHAT LG HAS TO SAY
“Consumers use tablets differently from smartphones and we wanted to highlight the important role of entertainment in the new LG G Pad 10.1.” said Lambro Skropidis, General Manager Marketing at LG Electronics Australia. “Tablets are increasingly being used as companion devices, which is why we made connecting the new G Pad to other devices so easy and convenient, and why it also offers the best software innovations of our G series smartphones.”
HOW MUCH, WHEN, AND WHERE?
The LG G Pad 10.1 offers just the right balance of performance, personality and price to fill the gap between entry level and premium tablets. You can pick one up in Red exclusively from Harvey Norman, or Black from Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, Bing Lee, and Betta Electrical from the beginning of August at RRP $399. Also being sold separately at the same selected retailers is the LG G Pad Quick Cover. Available in Black for an RRP $69, the G Pad Quick Cover offers protection and versatile positioning.
