Verizon LG G Pad

Verizon is bundling an LG G Pad 8.3 LTE or a $200 credit toward other tablets with all new FiOS orders. The deal is valid starting today and extends till July 19. FiOS is Verizon's bundled internet, phone and TV service that works on a fiber-optic network, with speeds exceeding 450 Mbit/sec in select areas.

After registering for a new FiOS connection, you will receive a certificate for the LG G Pad 8.3 LTE within 30 days of installation. The certificate can then be redeemed at Verizon stores before September 30. As is often the case with such deals, the tablet works only on Verizon's network and requires you to activate a new two-year contract.

The G Pad 8.3 is a high-end tablet that comes with a full-HD display (1920 x 1200), Snapdragon 600 SoC with a quad-core 1.7 GHz CPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 5 MP camera, 1.3 MP front camera, LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and a 4600 mAh battery.

FIOS isn't available in my area either, the deal is worthless anyway since a contract is required to activate the danm tablet, no thank you, I'll take Directv deal through Costco and $200 cash card instead and keep my blazing fast Charter cable internet, thank you very much.

Yeah there is no way that I am going to get roped into a 2 year contract with Verizon just for the tablet. Not that it is a raw deal, but a WiFi only version would have been better...

Does anyone know if it will still work as a "Wifi only" tablet if one doesn't want to sign a contract with the devil, er, um, I mean Verizon?

Bah, reading is over-rated :)

Maybe the article text changed or I just wanted to make sure it was *really* required, but I'll admit I didn't go to the source link.

the tablet or $200 credit toward a tablet is in ADDITION to a $300 visa card according to Verizon's front page of their website.
