Default LG G Pad 8.3 Inch Tablet

I am really intrigued by this tablet, despite it being made by LG. Anyone else interested? It has great build quality, nice screen, pretty good- great cpu.
I love the size too, right in the sweet spot of bigger than a 7 inch tablet, and smaller than a 10.1 inch tablet.

Apparently its coming to Canada on November 3rd, but I can`t seem to find any confirmation of that.

I'd wait for people with personal experience to review it, not just actual reviewers as LG's last try at a tablet was pathetic to say the least.

That's fair, many review sites tend to give excessively good reviews.
As long as the hardware is good, I'm not too worried as I'll be rooting and installing cyanegon or something like that. Providing their is developer support.

Any tablet that has expandable storage is a immediate winner to me. Hopefully hardware and software works well as this looks pretty good.

Software was the major issue with their first tablet.

I guess the issue will come down to how popular it is with the hardcore enthusiasts (ie, the developers) and if LG can release a solid product. I understand their last tablet was horrible but its been a few years since its release. Their last few phones have been stellar, which gives me hope.

Once again though, the size is absolutely perfect. I have owned a 7 inch tablet and a 10 inch tablet. Ones too small, the other too large.

The GPad is incredible! Hits right in the "awesome" spot. Also here's another good review:
