Several weeks ago LG announced the arrival of the 7″ G Pad across Europe with other versions set to arrive in the coming weeks. Today it is the 10.1in versions turn. LG have today announced the global launch of the 10.1in G-Pad. Once again LG are maintaining the premise that the tablet is a multimedia device although the relatively low end specs may make it difficult to play 3D graphic-intensive games fluidly. On the other hand they may just mean it is good for watching movies and that’s it.

The LG G Pad 10.1 is perfect for on-the-go media consumption as it boasts an expansive, widescreen display powered by an 8,000mAh battery that gives users an immersive multimedia experience and endless hours of entertainment.
