LG’s largest Android-based tablet, the LG G Pad 10.1, that previewed last month, will now be globally available starting with the US and Europe.

The G Pad 10.1 has been designed to balance performance with price, placing it somewhere between entry level and high-end tablets. That’s why you won’t find radically new features in this 10.1-inch tablet. The G Pad, in fact, echoes many key features of the LG G3 Smartphone, like Touch & Shoot, Gesture Shot, Smart Keyboard and Dual Window.

Key features:

The Touch & Shoot mode allows a user to tap anywhere on the screen to simultaneously focus and click a picture.

Gesture Shot is a selfie-friendly mode that initiates a three-second countdown to a selfie by simply clenching the free hand into a fist within the shot frame.

Smart Keyboard tracks the typing habits and patterns of each individual, factors that in, and rectifies typing errors by up to 75 percent.

Dual Window splits the screen into two and allows dragging and dropping content between them.

With QPair 2.0, the G Pad 10.1 allows quick and easy handshakes between Android tablets and smartphones via Bluetooth. This means that users can answer texts or calls received on their Android phone through the tablet itself.

“Tablets are increasingly being used as companion devices, which is why we made connecting the LG G Pad 10.1 to other devices so easy and convenient and why LG G Pad 10.1 offers the best core technologies of our G series smartphones,” Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said in a press release.

Hardware specs:

The G Pad 10.1 runs on the latest Android OS v4.4 (Kit Kat), has a 1280 x 800 pixel HD display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB inbuilt memory, 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front camera.

The company press release informs that local prices will be announced as the tablet launches in each region and will be available in colours black, white, red, orange, and blue.
