As if Verizon customers didn’t have plenty of 4G LTE tablet options already, the nation’s largest wireless network sees its Android slate family grow by two today.
Just in time for the holidays, the G Pad 7.0 and G Pad 10.1 join LG’s other high-speed “mini-PC”, the G Pad 8.3.
Both these new tablets have affordability on their side when pitted against, say, Nexus devices or Apple iPads. The 7 incher goes for $249.99 outright and, “for a limited time”, $49.99 with two-year pacts. Meanwhile, the 10-inch variation is unsurprisingly a little steeper, at $199.99 and $299.99 on and off-contract respectively.
In comparison, Big Red’s cheapest iPad is the first-gen Mini, and starts at a whopping $229.99 with 24-month activations. As for the Nexus 9, it’s yet to go on sale at Verizon, but when it does, it could command a price point two or three times higher than the G Pad 7.0.
