Mobile comapnies seem to be poking each other in the eye these days to get their new gaming tablets out to the public. First we saw the Razer Edge, and now we have the Wikipad 7¨gaming tablet, coming your way on June 11th, 2013.
The Wikipad will be available at the surprisingly affordable price of $249 in the US, with a global and UK launch planned for later this year. Matthew Joynes, Chairman of Wikipad Inc. says, “The launch of the Wikipad 7 tablet signals a transformative turning point in the direction of the mobile gaming industry. Wikipad’s tablet combines the latest range of features found in a premium Android tablet together with the unrivaled console video game experience only available with a gamepad.”
Says Fraser Townley, President of Sales at Wikipad, “There is no other mobile device on the market that possesses Wikipad’s unique functionality and versatility and all available with full warranty and customer support at an entry level price point.”
The price is really what sticks out to me. For $249 you get Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), a 7 inch screen, 16 GB memory with an additional micro SD slot to support a further 32 GB of storage, together with micro USB, GPS, accelerometer and gyroscope. The Wikipad is powered by NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor that’s optimized for cloud gaming with a 12 core Nvidia GPU. With an aspect ratio of 16:10, a 2-mega-pixel front facing camera the Wikipad tablet offers true widescreen HD display and HDMI out.
In addition to all the games available through Google Play and Nvidia’s TegreZone, gamers will also get access to PlayStation Mobile games, bringing an impressive game count to the Wikipad. For more information, please click here.
