Wikipad 7 Android Gaming Tablet Coming This June

wikipad-610x353

What the heck is this????

Wikipad 7, an Android gaming table, will be available this June 11th for $249,  Powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor, the 7-inch tablet ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and will have access to the Google Play store and Nvidia’s TegraZone, and it will have the ability to run PlayStation Mobile games.  That’s over 700,000 apps to choose from.

The tablet’s 1280 x 800 IPS display is accompanied by 1GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage plus microSD card support, and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. Stereo speakers, microUSB and microHDMI ports.  Personally, I think the most attractive things are the detachable dual-analog controller.

The Wikipad will be available through Walmart, Best Buy and Target Direct.

  1. design-wise, the WiiU gamepad is much sleeker (which i prefer, at least without first having held both for a side-by-side comparison).

    while the detachable analog sticks are an interesting feature for portability, how does that affect the durability, i wonder. like what’s to prevent the sticks from popping loose during play, or what’s to keep ppl from just loosing the darn things?

    w/ GooglePlay, i’m happy with my Xperia PLAY for now~
    (though this might make Ikaruga much more manageable, maybe?) >[:)

      • it’s not perfect, but i personally like it.
        $250+ price tag for a 2year old smart phone, that’s really up to you.

        the PS-styled face buttons work nicely, pretty much like any other Playstation controller (minus the ergonomic grip of the DualShocks).
        i’ve yet to take an extensive test drive on the touch analog-pads, which work decently…but no final verdict until i try them on an FPS.

        the library of Xperia-optimized games, bit small to be honest, and it’s a shame that PSN game are not accessible (can’t figure Sony, sigh). but at least there are the PS-suite game and all the stuff on Google-Play.

        where the Xperia truly shines (okay, moral gray area here) is that it allows me to play Super Metroid on public transportation (via emulation). granted, the music emulation leaves much to be desired, but i enjoy my fixes of nostalgia on-the-go without having to dust-off & hook up the ol’ SNES. though i don’t know if they’ve finally legitimately released Super Metroid for 3DS virtual console by now…?

        might blog about this one once i’ve gathered my pics… >[:)
