Wikipad has announced its 7-inch tablet that will be available to the UK market on 27 September.
With its patented, detachable dual-analog controller, the Wikipad is the only tablet so far, to combine a console-quality gaming experience with the portability of an Android tablet. Powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor that's optimized for Cloud gaming with a 12-core NVIDIA GPU, the gadget offers a multi-capacitive touchscreen, 16GB onboard memory, microUSB, GPS, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a HDMI port. It also houses a microSD slot, supporting additional storage up to 32GB in capacity.
Its lightweight controller is connected via microUSB for maximum responsiveness, and its ergonomic design mirrors the very best gamepads on the market with double analog sticks, while its action, trigger, and bumper buttons have been designed and tested to suit all hand sizes. Equipped with an ultra-light and thin chassis with a non-slip ridge that provides enhanced grip for left and right-handed users, it can render 3D games on the fly, and push a 3D signal to 3D TVs.
Priced at GBP$249.99 or EUR$299.99, UK consumers will get instant access to over 700,000 business, entertainment and games apps from the Google Play store, PlayStation Mobile games from Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., and TegraZone. A list of controller-compatible games is available here.
