Wikipad will be launching at retailers in the spring of 2013 and the tablet has decided to lose some weight and drop in price quite a bit. The Wikipad will now be a 7″ tablet and retail for the price of $249 when it launches.
Wikipad, Inc felt that the smaller form factor seemed better for portability while still being able to provide the same specs that were set to appear in the 10″ version. By decreasing the size, the price of the table becomes more appealing to gamers while refinements made to the controller look to increase the response time for a great gaming experience.
The website for the Wikipad has been updated to show off the new design of the tablet and give gamers a look at what it is capable of. Wikipad features an IPS 7″ screen that features true widescreen HD, 16GB memory with SD card slot that supports up to 32GB of memory, powered by Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor, and optimized for cloud gaming.
Gamers will have access to various services that provide quality games such as PlayStation Mobile that is currently offering free games, TegraZone that shows the best apps for the Tegra processor, Google Play store, and others. The tablet comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and allows for various other content to be enjoyed on it from music to apps and movies.
Many may feel that tablet gaming will not be able to provide the same experiences as dedicated consoles but Wikipad looks to have other plans in mind and PlayStation Mobile support helps in trying to lure gamers. Personally, it is a tablet I would strongly consider purchasing because of the great gaming services on it and that Vita matching price point also helps.
