LG G Pad 8.3 detailed: LG returns to the tablet fold with Full HD

This week the folks at LG have announced the LG G Pad 8.3 tablet, the first tablet the company has announced for the market in several years. Remember the double-camera-toting 3D-capable T-Mobile LG G-Slate?

LG G2 Hands-on with benchmark tests

This LG device brings a sliding front panel that reveals a full QWERTY keyboard much in the same way that the Motorola DROID 4 did back in February of 2012. There's also a near-identical device by the name of LG Mach that was released earlier this year - not that you'd need to know that if you're sticking with Verizon.
