LG has just announced their latest G Pad, a 10.1″ tablet which will officially be unveiled at IFA in Berlin next month.

The tablet is LG’s entry to the premium tablet market, offering a 10.1″ screen with ‘ultra-slim’ bezels and a FullHD resolution screen. The tablet will be available in Wi-Fi and LTE iterations, though this, like some of the other hardware configurations will differ by markets. There’s reports that the tablet will include a full-size USB-port, a rumour backed up by renders of the 8″ version on the LG Korea website.

Software wise, the tablet will come with Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) with customised LG inclusions such as Q Memo Plus (Q Memo +), ‘Reader Mode’ and LG’s Dual-Window mode for running apps side-by-side. The LG G Pad II 10.1 will also come with Microsoft Office apps pre-installed which will include Word, Excel and PowerPoint, making the tablet also a good match for the business market.

The LG GPad II 10.1 will launch next month at IFA and then in Europe, as well as Korea in LTE and Wi-Fi versions and then move to the United States. Launch information beyond that hasn’t been announced but we’ve contacted LG Australia to see if they will be launching here.

Update:
LG Australia have contacted us regarding availability of the G Pad II 10.1, advising:

LG Australia is currently reviewing the suitability of the G PAD II 10.1 for the local Australian market. Further information will be provided at a later date following review of the product with local channel partners.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
