Another Android tablet with a game controller – Wikipad

It seems like Android is becoming an attractive platform game for manufacturers. After Archos GamePad, it is now Wikipad’s turn to launch an Android tablet with controllers.

The Wikipad tablet features a 10.1 inch IPS screen and is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 running at 1.4 gigahertz. The difference between the GamePad and the Wikipad is that the Wikipad controller is an extra module that you can add to the Wikipad enhancing your gaming experience.

The Wikipad will come loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and will be compatible with Google Play, Nvidia’s Tegra Zone and PlayStation Mobile. You’ll have ample storage space with the 16GB of internal storage the Wikipad has to offer. Add to this 1GB of RAM and you get a pretty good gaming device.
Not only that, but the Wikipad console is expected to provide you with 6 hours of continuous game play and 8 hours of continuous video play. I guess that Wikipad’s motto really applies as it states the following:

Work hard, game hard

On top of that, the Wikipad comes with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The Wikipad is set to be available starting October 31st at the retail price of $499.
