The Wikipad was supposed to be a 10.1 inch tablet built exclusively for gaming enthusiasts. It was pegged for an autumn launch at a price of around $500. The good news on this front is that the Wikipad tablet is back again, though after having undergone some extensive changes. Gone is the 10 inch version and in its place has come the Wikipad that offers 7 inch of display. Along with the display, the price has also come down to $250, while the revised launch schedule is for the coming spring.
As for the tablet’s specs, an Nvidia Tegra 3 chip will make up the internals, along with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. There also is a micros SD card slot to allow for more storage. The 7 inch display packs 1280 x 800 pixels while the OS is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The tablet will be compatible with all the gaming titles that Google Play carries along with PS One games as well.
These apart, a really nice aspect of the tablet is that the surrounding gaming controls can be completely detached, which will make the tablet similar to any Android tablet out there. As for those who believe the 7 inch display will be insufficient to make for a really involving gaming experience, the company has said they are committed to the 10.1 inch variant which should be with us towards the end of the year.
