The Wikipad 7 Brings Controlled Gaming To a 7 inch Tablet for just $249!
Boots are made for walking, and the Wikipad is made for gaming! Game centric tablets are a thing, not an everywhere thing, at least not yet. If Wikipad has anything to do with it, the portable gaming market will make its future in tablets. In the past there have been a few game centric Android based device, some that look like tablet and others that look like phones. Recently the MG was released for kids that love gaming and Sony started to give Playstation certification for Android based mobile handsets (Wikipad being one). All the while Wikipad was producing some awesome! Last year Wikipad launched a 10 inch gaming tablet in conjunction with Gamestop and now the next generation Wikipad is here.
The Wikipad for those of you, who are unfamiliar, is indeed a slate style tablet that slides into its awesome controller for that full gaming experience. While gaming on a touch screen for the most part is ok, the more intricate and developed mobile games become, the more and more we’ll need a physical controller. For example, you can surely play the newly launched GTA on your touch screen, but making proper headway in beating the game would call for some directional pads and buttons! The latest Wikipad brings that concept back to the fore front of the tablet space by announcing their new 7” Wikipad tablet. Set to be available to “from leading retailers” this spring the Wikipad 7 will run you about $249 bucks. So what’s inside? Gaming! The Wikipad 7 starts with a 7 inch IPS touch screen that offers up a 1280×800 pixel resolution with a military grade scratch resistant screen. Inside the Wikipad 7 is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor, and more importantly a “High-performance 12-core NVIDIA GPU. Additionally we can expect 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, as well as a front facing camera that sports a 2 mega pixel sensor. The Wikipad 7 also comes with it Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS+GLONASS, a 3.5mm headphone jack, built in stereo speakers, a build in microphone, micro HDMI output as well as a micro USB data and power connection. A super large 4100 mAh battery can be found internally making it all come together. Unfortunately a release date is not specified however more details are expected to be announced after the Chinese New Year.
