Two New LG tablets Now Available in Time for the Holidays
More tablets, more options. Two new tablets are now available on the Verizon Wireless network – the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE and LG G Pad 10.1 LTE.
The tablets come in two different sizes so you have options to select the tablet that fits your mobile lifestyle and needs. The 10.1-inch model has an HD IPS display ideal for movies and entertainment on a big screen. It also has ergonomic curves so it fits comfortably in your hands while gaming, watching videos and more. The 8,000 mAh battery means hours of fun and entertainment, especially during holiday travel where you may need it most.
The 7-inch model also has an HD IPS display and has a compact design that makes it easy to carry around in bags or purses. And its curves and soft grip make comfortable for one-handed use, ideal for reading e-books and digital magazines. No more need to be carrying piles of magazines or having to only carry one book with you at a time.
Both tablets come with LG apps and features that complete the tablet experience. The Q Pair™ app on the tablets uses Bluetooth to sync the tablet with a user’s Android smartphone (running Android 4.1 or higher) to receive notifications for calls, texts and social media updates. If the phone is accidentally left at home or at the office, Verizon Messages allows users to send and receive text messages from their tablets. The Dual Window feature splits the screen for multitasking, allowing for two apps to be viewed and used at the same time.
The smart keyboard on the tablet adapts to your typing style and patterns so the more you use it, the better the experience. And it allows for customization so you can adjust the keyboard height and rearrange the keys, really making the keyboard yours.
The two new tablets are available in time for customers to take advantage of Connection Day on Nov. 26. Users will have access to offers from Amazon, Apple, Boingo Wireless, Condé Nast, Gogo, JetBlue and Pandora. And Verizon Wireless customers on MORE Everything plans who register for Connection Day get an extra treat: they are eligible to receive a one-time gift of 1GB of sharable data applied to their account through the end of their bill cycle, along with another 1GB of data in their next billing cycle.
