The new tablet is available for Wi-Fi only version.
The retail price of G Pad 8.3 tablet will be $510. Optimus Pad, LG’s first tab with a 8.9-inch display, didn’t become that popular in the market.

Specifications of G Pad 8.3

LG has also added a feature that allows users to check and send messages received by their Android smartphone from the tablet, hoping such function will help it stand out in an increasingly crowded mobile market.
