Wikipad is a company we first heard about at CES this year. They were promoting a 7 inch tablet back then. Today, we got an official specs sheet of an upcoming gaming tablet by Wikipad, named Wikipad. It has a 10,1 inch screen with resolution of 1280×800 pixels, 1,4GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30 processor, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 16GB storage plus a microSD card slot, 8MP back camera plus 2MP front-facing one, and a 23.46Wh battery to power all of these electronics. It’s worth noting that this is one of the lightest and thinnest tablets, weighing at 560 grams and being only 8,6mm thick. That makes thicker than the iPad 2 by a hair, but lighter by 40 grams.
But it’s not the spec sheet that makes this tablet unique. It has a proprietary gaming controller add-on that connects to the device on the back of the tablet. It has a proprietary charging port, and audio grills right on top of the speakers, resulting with pleasant audio experience. The game pads are similar to what you can find on an XBOX controller, differently placed though. They have the usual sets of buttons (up, down, left, right, 1, 2, 3, 4) plus two joysticks and two sets of bumpers. This will surely soften the hearts of every gamer out there, even the most spoiled ones. The controller will ship with every tablet, so you won’t have to pay extra cash for it.
The Wikipad will ship with Android 4.1 Jellybean on board, but we know nothing about release date, pricing, or market availability, but it shouldn’t be long until those mysteries are uncovered.
