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

Jul 31, 2012, 15:00 (1 Talkback[s])

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 1280x800 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.
