LG G Pad 10.1 lands at Best Buy for $250

After having announced the LG G Pad 10.1 earlier this year, it seems that LG's larger slate is now making its way to the U.S. arriving at Best Buy retail stores for $250. The G Pad 10.1 joins the LG G Pad 8.3, but with more modest specs to keep the pricing low and competitive.

The device will ship with a 10.1-inch 1280 X 800-pixel display and a Snapdragon 400 processor from Qualcomm out of the box with 1 GB of RAM to power the Android 4.4.2 build.

Still, if you don't need the blazing fast performance of more expensive 10-inch Android tablets, the LG G Pad 10.1 may represent a nice affordable alternative.

Want more information about the G Pad 10.1 and LG's other latest tablets? Be sure to check out our hands-on of the device. Also check out our LG G Pad 8.3 review if you're looking for something a tad smaller.

LG G Pad 10.1 lands at Best Buy for $250

I totally forgot about this one I have a Nexus 7 and for my next tablet I would want something bigger like 10 inches but this is too underpowered to replace that
Posted from my Nexus 7 2013 running Android L or Samsung galaxy S5

I love my G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition. The only thing I would change about it is a larger screen, but this not having stock Android and a slower processor... Idk

For me the 8.3 GPE is the perfect size. Great for reading in portrait, and great for watching movies and playing games in landscape.

I agree. Well, I have the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 which is 8.4", but I love the size. It's big enough that I don't really feel I need a bigger screen, yet small enough to actually fit in some of my pockets.

Yes the G Pad 8.3 is a great sized tablet and it's more powerful. To me it's still the LG tablet to get.

I have it as well. I'm enjoying it thus far. I do wish it was a little larger though. I have a G2 and the tablet isn't that much bigger. Plus, it being under 300 PPI still makes the screen look pixelated from when reading text.

+1, I got a manufacturer refurbished hp chromebook 14 instead of a 10" tablet and have to say it's been the best choice I made, $199 well spent

Nice buy and good price! I have been tempted to get a Chrombook for awhile. Then the Surface pro 3 came out. Bought it ... Took it back before opening it and got the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 with the Logitech 12.2 Pro Keyboard ! Yes more expensive but the experience I get with it out ways the ChromeBook for me.

Depends on what you'd be using it for. For reading, web browsing and watching movies, I'd go with the tablet. For typing, I'd go with a Chromebook

I'd agree to some extent.

My tablet is my armchair device.

My phone is my mobile device

My Chromebook is my replacement pc

All I do across the 3 is read the web, email, YouTube, google moves/music and that's about it and the Chromebook feels better to do that on.

If you like mobile gaming go for a tablet, and obviously the higher res screen is a factor to some. My old eyes can tell the difference still just about lol

If you are a casual user who does little gaming and are more of a media consumption user then I say go with the Chromebook all day

Yet at $250, priced to sell to a much larger market who aren't spec freaks.
.
Although not suitable for certain AC troll holes, LG is coming to the market strong against Apple and Samsung to grab a greater piece of the action.

This type of competitive action is to all our benefit.

There's people that don't care. A snapdragon 400 will be fine for people like my mom, who is still enjoying her Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 with a lot worse specs than this.

how does text look. i will be watching some videos and reading PDF mags. Also, does it have an SD card slot, I need that for the videos. Nice look alex, thanks.

Text will be pretty pixelated on the 10 inch model. Not horrible, but if you are used to 350+ PPI, you won't like it

Yeah, I agree. If you're not a heavy mobile gamer and you don't watch a lot of high-res videos, the processor and screen won't bother you too much. Only one gig of RAM will end up leading to sluggish performance, though.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 has 1.5GB RAM. Even with the added TW bloat, thats worth noting.
Played with one pf these LGs the other night at BB. Its screen looked about as good as the Tab 4 10.1 and performance seemed as good if not a tad better. I liked the feel of the LG better than the Sammy but the Samsung gives more you more usable screen real estate. Overall, I like LG's UI a lot better as well but I would probably get the Samsung due to more RAM, better accessory ecosystem and a greater likelihood of future OS updates.

Price will be $199 or less in . A month or so. G pad 8.3 went from $349 to 249 quick. Love my g pad. This 10in is a step down in specs but will compete with the galaxy tab 4 series, not the galaxy tab s series.

That means the 7in g pad will be stupid cheap!

Picked one up to replace my ancient Toshiba Thrive and couldn't be happier. Got my Note 3 as my "spec'd out" device. Using this for browsing, email and videos is perfectly fine.

Well I have the Nexus 10 bought it 7 months ago for 250 GBP 32 gig brand new and I think it's the best thing since sliced bread lol.
