LG has took a great step with the original (our) G Pad and made a great premium tablet, but because it didn't sell enough they decided to go with the samsung way to produce a crappy tablet with a cheap (yet overpriced) price.

- That's their own doing. When it was first announced, I *really* wanted one of these and would have happily paid a premium full asking price on day 1, but up here in Canada this was total vapourware for the first 6 months of its release, and is only just recently available from our big electronic retailers as web-purchase only for $399, still vapourware if you want to see and hold the device, not available in-store, and I can assure you I'm NOT going to cough up that kind of coin sight unseen for something that by the time it became available to me was pretty much a year and a half old on specs.
For the current selling price, I'll be able to get one of the new Samsung 8.4" tabs with better-in-every-respect specs.
LG did this to themselves. If you want to sell your product, you have to actually make it available. Samsung has that figured out, I can walk into *any* local store, drugstores included, and physically see, try and purchase a full range of their plethora of devices. Despite *begging* LG via email for months, I was never able to actually get one of these in any way, and now that I can, it's way too late. Again I say, they did it themselves and really should think long and hard about their marketing and supply strategy.
