Sprint and LG on Thursday announced the upcoming availability of the LG G Pad F 7.0 tablet.

Powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop, the 7-inch tablet boasts 8GB internal storage with microSD expansion, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and 4,000mAh battery. Additional specs include a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, and support for Wi-Fi and Sprint LTE networks.

The LG G Pad F 7.0 will carry a retail price of $240; customers can spread payments out on Sprint Easy Pay for $0 down and 24 payments of $10 per month.

“LG G Pad F 7.0 is a perfect companion to any Android smartphone, especially with these low-cost purchasing options. Once again, Sprint proves that we are the best value in wireless by giving our customers a dynamic tablet at no cost or the option to add it to the $90 Family Share Pack plan… up to 5 devices and 12 GB of data.

Sprint will also offer the tablet for free with customers who sign a two-year service agreement and data plan. The catch is that the subscriber must also have an active smartphone on a Sprint account.

The G Pad F 7.0 comes in two color options, white and black, however the latter will not arrive in stores until April 10.

Two Nexus phones on tap for this year and one of them could be made by Huawei


Nexus_5_Nexus_Logo_TA

Yesterday it was leaked that the next Nexus phone would be made by a Chinese manufacturer, and today we might know who that is. Not only that, it appears that there might actually be two Nexus phones launched this year.

The same leaker is now saying there will be two Nexus phones, one produced by the said Chinese manufacturer, and the other by LG. This isn’t something that Google has done in the past, but it doesn’t sound so far fetched since we already have both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 available at the same time. If you take into account that Google cannot call the next Nexus phone the Nexus 7 for obvious reasons, it’s likely they will make new versions of both the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 6. This would keep most customers happy since not everyone wants a 6-inch phone. It would also solve the issue of having just one expensive Nexus phone. The Nexus 5 could be more budget-friendly and the Nexus 6 would be the premium-priced version.

The next question is who is that Chinese manufacturer? Well the leaker didn’t say, but he did divulge that the said manufacturer might use their own processor. As of right now, there is only one manufacturer that it could be. Huawei has their own Hisilcon Kirin chip.

So there you have it. LG and Huawei will make the next Nexus phones. I say that with a little chuckle because we are very early in the game so I wouldn’t bet a lot of money on it just yet, but it doesn’t sound all that crazy does it?

Sprint to off the LG G Pad F 7.0 for free on two-year contract on March 13th


LG g pad f 7.0If you’ve been considering adding a tablet to your monthly cellular plan, Sprint will soon be selling LG’s G Pad F 7.0 on a two-year contract. The tablet comes equipped with LTE radios for Sprint’s network and is the first LG tablet that the carrier has offered. The tab is free on a two-year contract, and it runs just $10 a month on Sprint EasyPay.

The G Pad F sports a Snapdragon 410 CPU and a 7-inch IPS display, so while it’s not a top-of-the-line device, it’s not a bad deal for what it costs. With LG’s Q Pair, you can even sync the tablet with any Android phone to mirror notifications like texts and calls to the tablet, so you can effectively replace your phone with this in a pinch.

For the full press release from LG, hit the link below. You’ll be able to order the tablet beginning on March 13th.

New Watch Urbane model offers LTE, NFC, but no Android Wear


lg watch urbane lte (3)

LG just took the wraps off a new version of the Watch Urbane (itself a version of the G Watch R), but this time changes are more than skin deep. The new Watch Urbane LTE runs LG’s “all new Wearable Platform” OS instead of Android Wear, and offers voice calling, thanks to the integration of LTE.

Watch Urbane LTE looks similar to the “regular” Watch Urbane, with the biggest difference being the presence of three buttons on the side, instead of one, like on the Android Wear model. The top button offers quick access to settings, the middle button switches between the watchface and the app launcher, while the bottom one acts like a back button. Long pressing this last button can be set to trigger a call to a certain number and to send out the wearer’s location coordinates. This safety beacon feature is similar to the one on the kids-focused LG Kizon.

Thanks to cellular connectivity, you can use the Watch Urbane LTE to make phone calls and the device even works in walkie-talkie mode, where Push-To-Talk services are available. Another cool feature of the device is NFC – LG says you will be able to pay for things like movie tickets or transit fares by waving your wrist against an NFC reader, though details are lacking for now.

To accommodate the power-thirsty LTE function, LG packed a 700-mAh battery on the new Urbane, which is significantly larger than the 410-mAh unit on other models. No details were offered, but the Watch Urbane LTE should be good for “long talk and use times and can go for days in standby mode.”

Other than the larger battery, the Watch Urbane LTE features the same specs as the Watch Urbane and G Watch R.

  • Chipset: 1.2GHz Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 400
  • Operating System: LG Wearable Platform
  • Display: 1.3-inch P-OLED (320 x 320 / 245ppi)
  • Network: LTE
  • Memory: 4GB eMMC / 1GB LPDDR3
  • Battery: 700mAh
  • Sensors: 9 Axis / Barometer / PPG / GPS
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b, g, n / Bluetooth 4.0LE / NFC
  • Color: Silver
  • Other: Dust and Water Resistant (IP67) / Speaker / Microphone

LG is very vague about it, but the Wearable Platform OS powering the Urbane LTE seems to be a version of webOS. In fact, the smartwatch seems very similar to the mystery LG webOS smartwatch that an Audi representative showed to the press at CES. We look forward to see this new incarnation of webOS in action, probably at MWC.

No info yet on price and availability, but we should learn more next week.
