USD299? , 18 Sep 2013Rumours has it that it will cost 'only' USD299. If its true then I getting one. Can't wait.This new tablet (LG G Pad 8.3) that has no track record whatsoever has been priced higher than the iPad Mini 2 and within $20 of the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HDX (Snapdragon 800 vs. LG's SD 600 and 339 pixels per inch vs. LG's 273 ppi) in the U.S. As soon as I saw the G pad 8.3 $350 price tag I lost interest in this tablet. I don't know whether it was Best Buy or LG that made the pricing decision but at $350 they've lost their chance at being a real force in the U.S. tablet market. $299 would have been perfect.
Goodluck with the 4600 mAh battery. Yes it is full HD but I guess that would drain the battery real fast. I bet 4-5 hours continuous video at 50% brightness since S60O isn't really power efficient. And if it is, the battery won't still be enough to power it long enough through the day. It's only 1400 mAh short of Note 3's battery. Going to wait for the iPad mini 2 or 2nd gen Galaxy Note 8. Performance isn't a real issue these days. Most companies have real tricks on that. Battery life is the one at the edge. A really power efficient CPU-GPU or a new battery technology are the one that needs looking into.
Saint, 17 Oct 2013good tablet but no sim card for network mobile likes good car without gasoline..... :)not really most pad are used at home with wifi, for mobile i have my s4 or any smartphone.......

AnonD-114814, 13 Oct 2013have micro sd slot ,up 64 gbi like this tablet a lot. im buying it mainly because it has a microsd card slot for consuming media and internet for my travels. really nice display and good design
Why NONE of tech reviewers NOT tested this tablet support for OTG and more over ntfs file system on flash sticks? That would be a very very interesting information for all of us who want to buy new tablet. Waiting for 2 months already and still no information about usb host. If it has no OTG so no matter what a great screen or camera it has I will buy any kind of samsung tab or note, not lg.. :/
Much dissapointed that no one said it has No OTG or it has it.. Lost much time with such kind of reviewers that show nothing on their youtube vids - just sliding screens left and right..
why there is no GSM Network. I am interest to buy, but if there is no SIM Card, i think waste of money.
If the price is $299 USD, I'm sold.
Wish it was Snapdragon 800, though. G Pad or Nexus 7 2013 or Kindle Fire HDX will be one of my next tablet. I will wait and see after all of it are released.
USD299? , 18 Sep 2013Rumours has it that it will cost 'only' USD299. If its true then I getting one. Can't wait.Nope, it will be around USD510
Inder_india, 07 Oct 2013if this is not a GSM / Calling divice. Thus why it is vibrating as Alert type. keep it corre... moreits because it will still have chat services like facebook chat or other chat apps as it has wifi connecivity, its a way to notify you if some one sends you PM or emails
if this is not a GSM / Calling divice.
Thus why it is vibrating as Alert type.

what?!...do numbers deceive you?..snapdragon 600 is much snappier than the 800! plus the tab is designed to synchronise with a phone using its Q-PAIR!!..w/c is quite cool in my opinion.. :)
