Not content with having just one tablet (the G Pad 8.3) compared with its rival Samsung, Korean manufacturer LG will be announcing three new tablets -- the G Pad 7.0, 8.0 and 10.1 -- and they will be making their official debut in Monaco on May 13 at the MedPI tradeshow.

The three Android tablets will also share some of the features from LG's smartphone range, including Knock Code, which lets a user unlock the phone by tapping on the phone in a custom pattern anywhere on the screen.

Apart from the screen sizes, LG has not disclosed any other information about the tablet specifications, availability or pricing. Based on the official press pictures though, we can guess that the slates will likely sport a plastic chassis, have a rear camera and onscreen buttons.
