Perhaps in anticipation of a busy holiday season, today, LG Electronics announced the LG G Pad 8.3 which is the first device to be considered a Google Play Edition tablet. This tablet will feature Android 4.4 Kitkat and it is available in the United States starting today.
According to the press release:
With the perfect combination of KitKat’s Full-screen Immersive mode and LG’s stunning 1920 x 1200 WUXGA Full HD IPS display, this special edition of LG G Pad 8.3 offers an optimal viewing experience. Apps can utilize every pixel on the G Pad 8.3 screen to create full-bleed UIs reaching edge to edge. With the ability to hide the system UI such as the status bar and navigation bar, this feature is ideal for rich visual content such as photos, videos, maps, books and games.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said in a press release:
LG’s working relationship with Google has always been strong and our collaboration on the first-ever Google Play Edition tablet is proof of that commitment. The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is a device with hardware and software that has been optimized for a truly consumer-friendly experience. There’s nothing else like it out there in the marketplace.
