If I haven’t talked much about the tablet itself, it’s because, honestly, there isn’t much to say. It seems a “typical” Android tablet,
Therefore, the LG Ultra Tab is a mid-range model, which is confirmed with its price of 462,000 won, or about 347 dollars to change. What’s most exciting isn’t the tablet itself, but the possibility of it being the first of LG’s new Android devices.
