Android gaming tablet Wikipad sheds 3D, grows to 10″

First, on the hardware itself, yesterday VentureBeat shared some exclusive specs. The hardware of the tablet (setting aside the controller attachment) seems solid. The Wikipad is now a 10.1″ tablet with a 1280×800 IPS display. Inside is a Tegra 3 T30 chip running at 1.4 Ghz. That makes it a bit faster than the Google Nexus 7 and a bit slower than the ASUS Transformer Prime Infinity 700. The Wikipad includes a gig of RAM and at least 16 GB of storage; that last figure might be adjusted upwards before launch. The Wikipad will be lighter than the iPad 3 (560 grams vs 652 grams). It’ll run Android Jelly Bean.

So it sounds, on paper, like a pretty nice Android tablet. Of course that depends on the price, which we don’t know yet.
