Tablets are dead, but LG still hasn't received the memo

Apparently, LG is still making tablets. With a sharp decline in tablet sales and a struggling smartphone division, you would think that LG would get its focus right. But here we are at the end of 2016 with LG's new G Pad III 10.1-inch tablet with a 1920x1200 pixels display.

It runs on a 1.5GHz octa-core processor with 2GB RAM, 32 GB storage expandable with a microSD slot. Just like most launches in 2016, the G Pad III runs on Android Marshmallow with LG's custom "Time Square UX" skin top. Read More: LG G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE Full Specifications and Features

With a 6000 mAh battery and 510 grams in weight, the tablet is still quite light given the display size. Connectivity options include 4G LTE support, dual-band WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS and a USB Type-C port for charging/data syncing. Although I have never used a camera on a tablet, apart from when testing its image quality, LG has packed 5MP front and rear cameras here. The front camera should be good for video calls.

The G Pad III FHD LTE will be available in black color priced around $360 (Rs. 24,500) starting today in South Korea.
