The LG G Pad 8.3 provides wi-fi connection (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot) and 4G LTE high speed data connection. This tablet doesn't use a sim card, because it isn't a GSM enabled tablet.

This tablet also comes with a few cool features like Infrared Port, Bluetooth and GPS Localization, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
