Tablets have in the last couple of years reached a point of relative stasis, there’s not a huge amount of innovation there, with more focus on 2-in-1’s and the like, but LG is still in the game, announcing the G Pad Ⅲ 10.1 FHD LTE, but it’s only in South Korea…for now.
The G Pad Ⅲ is a 10″ tablet with a FullHD resolution IPS display. LG has upped the size of the G Pad Ⅲ 8.0 which was released earlier this year, not only increasing the display size, but adding in LTE connectivity. The larger display with a 16:10 Aspect Ratio allows for a more expansive multimedia experience for watching video, or surfing the internet.
While it appears to be your average run of the mill 10″ tablet, the LG G Pad Ⅲ also includes a Kickstand which will make watching a video a more pleasurable experience if you have somewhere handy to sit it.
LG has also done some interesting things with software allowing for different ‘modes’ for use. One mode, ‘Reader Mode’, which can be activated by hitting the ‘Q’ button on the side, uses less blue light, to relieve eye strain. Reader Mode has 4 levels of adjustability for black/white/low/normal/high.

- 10.1-inch Full HD IPS (1920×1200)

Lee Sang-gyu, managing director of LG Electronics Korea Sales Division said of the tablet
G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE” is the tablet that provides optimal convenience by supporting the existing ‘G Pad Ⅲ 8.0’ with the strength of LTE communication. We will expand the use of G-Pad to further enhance its competitiveness in the tablet market.
The tablet has been priced at 429,000 won (around $497.58AUD) and no availability details for Australia have been announced. We haven’t seen much from LG in terms of tablets for a while, and the tablet situation in Australia is getting rather dire so maybe this would make a good start.
