With an aim to offering more options to users, LG has confirmed it is launching three new versions of its G Pad 8.3 tablet. There are few details available yet such as price, release date and specs because the firm will announce the tablets in full at MedPI 2014 which starts tomorrow in Monaco.

LG hopes the new devices will significantly expand 'footprint in the tablet market'. While the 7- and 10-inch models make a lot of sense, we can't get our heads round the 8-inch size which is only 0.3-inch smaller than LG original G Pad tablet.

"Customers tell us that they want a wider range of devices that offer sizable screens without compromising portability," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "Unlike smartphones, tablets are not one size fits all. So we designed the G Pad Series for a diverse target audience, some who prioritize portability while others want the best multimedia experience possible. G Pad delivers on all counts."
