GameStop unveils three tablets tailored with gamers in mind
It may come as no surprise as we heard about the possibility of this happening, but GameStop is now officially cashing in on the tablet craze. The retailer of anything video game-related has announced that it will start selling three Android tablets outfitted with gamers in mind.
The 7-inch Acer Iconia Tab A100 ($329), the 10.1-inch Asus Eee Pad Transformer ($399) and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 ($499) will land in select GameStop outlets tomorrow, as well as on the retailer's online store. All of these devices are powered by NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 chip clocked at 1GHz, so they should pack enough processing punch to handle all of the hottest titles out there.
In order to make the experience complete, there will be six games bundled with the slates – Dead Space, Monster Madness, Sonic CD, Cordy, Riptide GP, and Re-Load, while an optional Bluetooth controller equipped with a rechargeable battery will set you back $39. Besides, all tablets will come with the Kongregate Arcade Android app, which offers about 500 free games, along with access to an online gaming community where players can challenge each other and discuss their favorite titles.
Anyone thinking about getting one of these tablets and spending a fair amount of their time laying waste to zombies or burning rubber on the virtual track? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
