Wikipad working on a 7", $249 gaming tablet


Android-powered gaming tablets are rare products that manage to ignite our curiosity due to their peculiar form-factors and the ambition of their makers. Both Archos and Wikipad have tried to develop that niche, although we can't really say that their products have turned into smash hits.

The good thing is this isn't stopping them from trying again and again, as Wikipad has now unveiled a new gaming tablet, which is scheduled to launch this spring for $249. This time, the tablet will have a 7-inch screen, instead of a 10" one as with the previous Wikipad. In terms of gaming controls, the Wikipad 7 will offer a standard directional pad and two analog sticks, as well as the other standard controls that you'll need.

The tablet will be powered by the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and will also be equipped with 16GB storage, microSD card slot and more. The OS that will come preinstalled on the Wikipad 7 will, thankfully, be Android Jelly Bean. Hooray!

What do you think about this gaming tablet? In our opinion, it looks cool and will be much more comfortable for gaming than a standard tablet, but we aren't sure if buying such a toy would be a good idea. Of course, you can use it as a normal tablet, but with all the gaming controls this sure will look strange.
