The Wikipad, a 7-inch Android-powered gaming tablet, will see its release date arrive on June 11 with a price tag of $249.
The Wikipad’s specs include a 1.4 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 7-inch 1280x800 IPS touchscreen, 16GB of storage, 2-megapixel front-facing camera for Skype-ing and 1 GB of memory. It will also include a microSD card slot that supports memory cards up to 32GB as well as GPS, micro-HDMI and more.
Weighing only 0.7 pounds, the Wikipad will run Android 4.1. Wikipad users will be able to download content from three marketplaces: Google Play, PlayStation Mobile and Nvidia TegraZone. It will be available from three retailers initially: Walmart, Best Buy and TigerDirect.
Games that can be played on the Wikipad include “Grand Theft Auto 3,” “Need for Speed: Most Wanted,” “Riptide GP” and more. It’ll be interesting to see whether Android gaming systems like the Wikipad and the Ouya can cut into the mainstream console market, especially considering that the PS4 and Xbox one are on the horizon.
