LG G Pad 8.3 gets a Google Play Edition Google has taken this week to add a substantial new lineup to its Google Play hardware store, including most recently the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the LG G Pad 8.3 tablet.
The tablet has an 8.3-inch 1080p ISP display, thin bezels, and is just 8.3mm thick, just slightly thicker than the iPad Air.

Having used the non-Google Play model of the tablet, we found it to be one of the best Android tablets, ever, and a strong competitor to the iPad Mini with Retina, despite a lower resolution display.

Under the hood is a quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, a microSD slot, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, dual cameras and a 4600mAh battery.

The tablet costs $349, more expensive than the Google Nexus 7, but with a more premium design and a larger screen.

Specs look good, Sony is going to take a premium approach to the android os. I think it is a good move.
