Ah, to be a child again. They say that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so what better way to ensure that Jack does not end up being dull than by indulging in a little bit of games? This is what the Wikipad tablet does, running on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and not not slouching when it comes to the kind of hardware required in order to get the latest games up and running. In fact, Wikipad is touted to be the first 7” tablet of its kind that will deliver what it claims to be an unrivaled gaming experience of a console, although you do get to enjoy the portability of a handheld device with the functionality of a premium tablet, which is all made possible courtesy of its unique attachable game controller. The asking price for the Wikipad? A mere $249, which clearly makes it an extremely attractive proposition.
Fraser Townley, President of Sales, Wikipad, Inc., said, “We wanted to get Wikipad into our community’s hands and what we found was that the smaller 7” form factor just seemed right. The smaller frame delivers an aggressive price while keeping the same amazing specs.”
Well, just what kind of hardware does the 7” Wikipad pack underneath the hood? Apart from its award winning attachable dual-analog controller on the outside, you will find a premium 7″ IPS touchscreen display that will be accompanied by 16GB of internal memory alongside a microSD memory card slot just in case all of that space is not enough for you to tote around your favorite movies and songs. Crammed within its ultra-light and thin chassis would also be the venerable NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor that has been specially optimized for cloud gaming, and with an aspect ratio of 16:10, you can be sure that the Wikipad tablet will deliver true widescreen HD display.
Those who decide to pick up the Wikipad will not come up short where games and apps are concerned, as you will be able to have access to entertainment and videogame content from differnt partners and services such as PlayStation Mobile, Big Fish Games, TegraZone – NVIDIA’s free app, Google Play, and OnLive among many others. When the gamepad controller remains detached, the Wikipad would make for an above average tablet, wherever you are. Any takers?
