The LG G Pad 10.1 is ready to start rolling out globally as promised, boasting some impressive software features for its category.

LG introduced its new series of Android tablets back in June, unveiling the G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0, and G Pad 10.1. The company announced at the time that its 7-inch slate would go on sale in Europe in June, but the 8- and 10.1-inch models would follow later on.

"The LG G Pad series offers just the right balance of performance, personality and price to fill the gap between entry level and premium tablets. In an effort to give consumers the best experience across its entire portfolio of devices, the new LG G Pad series will come preloaded with the best of G series' premium user experience (UX), including a host of features carried over from the LG G3, such as Touch & Shoot, Gesture Shot, Smart Keyboard and Dual Window," touts the press release on Monday, July 7.

The LG G Pad 10.1 is now starting its global rollout, boasting the aforementioned premium features such as Dual Window, which allows users to handle two apps at the same time, Smart Keyboard, which learns from the user's writing habits, Touch & Shoot, which lets users tap anywhere on the screen to take a shot, and more. LG's much-touted Knock Code is also on board, boosting the device's security by allowing users to set specific patterns for unlocking.

As a reminder, the LG G Pad 10.1 sports a 10.1-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage capacity, and microSD card support for additional memory. Other specs include a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front shooter, and a large 8,000 mAh battery to keep things up and running. On the software side, the tablet runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Moreover, LG also boasts the tablets' entertainment potential as one of its strong points.

"Consumers use tablets differently from smartphones and we wanted to highlight the important role of entertainment in the new LG G Pad 10.1," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "Tablets are increasingly being used as companion devices, which is why we made connecting the LG G Pad to other devices so easy and convenient and why LG G Pad 10.1 offers the best core technologies of our series smartphones."

The 10.1-inch G Pad tablet will make its debut in the U.S. this month, followed by Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Prices will vary depending on region.
