When it comes to pre-installed apps, few companies give you more than AT&T. Anyone using the U.S. carrier will be more than aware that their devices typically come with a number of the company’s own apps. Whether you find use for them or not, this is something that is unlikely to change in the future. In fact, AT&T have announced this morning that consumers who are thinking about picking up their soon to be arriving LG G Pad X 10.1 will find one more pre-installed app being added to the device.
The app is the DirecTV Everywhere app and is essentially an app to control and manage your DirecTV experience. The move to add to the pre-installed app to the LG G Pad X 10.1 is obviously a move based on AT&T’s recent purchase of DirecTV and their ongoing push to offer a more integrated approach to DirecTV with AT&T’s services. As the LG G Pad X does come with a 10.1-inch display, this particular device is likely to be an ideal candidate to use the likes of DirecTV. For those who have been thinking about picking up the tablet, it is due to go on sale starting from September 4th online. This will be followed by general in-store availability from September 11th. In terms of pricing, the LG G Pad X 10.1 will be available on a two year contract for a straight out $249.99. Alternatively, you can pay off or the device on AT&T’s tablet installment plan which is being offered over twenty months at a rate of $17.50 per month.
In terms of the specs, the LG G Pad X 10.1 comes with a 10.1-inch display with a full HD resolution. Inside, the LG G Pad X 10.1 comes equipped with 2GB RAM, powered by a Quad-core processor (clocking at 2.26 GHz) along with 32GB internal storage. There is a microSD card slot to expand the storage (up to 128GB) if needed. Everything is powered by a 7,400 mAh battery and the device comes running on Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.
