Verizon announced the availability of two low-cost LG tablets today. Priced at $300, LG’s full-size 10.1-inch tablet sports an HD IPS display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, 16GB of internal storage, an 8,000mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. The smaller and cheaper ($250) 7-inch slate features nearly identical specifications, with the exceptions of its smaller stature and its 4,000mAh cell.

If the aforementioned specs sound appealing, but the upfront cost don’t, you can also purchase the LG 10.1 for $200 on a 24 month service contract and the 7-inch slab for $50 when you commit to Big Red for two years. Compatible with the carrier’s XLTE service, both tablets ship with LG’s Knock Code security software and can be added to Verizon’s MORE Everything plans for an additional $10 per month.

While they’re most likely not your best Android tablet option this holiday season, LG’s mid-range slates look like a decent option for some casual couch-based web browsing and movie watching.
