"As the first tablet to offer the DIRECTV app, the LG G Pad X 10.1 is a game-changer for entertainment," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Device Marketing and Developer Services, AT&T. "With the G Pad X 10.1 you can walk out of an AT&T store watching your favorite shows on DIRECTV, before the service is even installed in your home. Combining this with a high speed processor, Full HD screen, and the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network, the G Pad X 10.1 is a comprehensive mobile entertainment system at an affordable price."
