Android "L" will start rolling out for Google devices in the fall. A preview version is currently available for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.

The LG G Pad 8.3 was released at the end of last year.

The tablet features a Full HD display that is around an inch bigger than the Nexus 7 and at 273 ppi, its resolution is slightly less impressive than Google and Asus's collaboration. Other features include a Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB or RAM and a 4,600 mAh battery.

The G Pad 8.3 features a sleek design that combines an aluminum backplate with a white polycarbonate. It is only 8.3mm thick and weighs 339 grams, however, it still manages to sport a classy look that shines in comparison to similar devices now available in the market. The tablet also takes microSD cards while the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HDX do not.

The device is available in the Google Play store for $349. That version is the official Google Play edition which means it runs a pure form of the firmware excluding some of the unnecessary apps found on many Android devices.
