Just a few days ago the Wikipad gaming tablet finally received FCC approval, after reportedly being redesigned a number of times since its announcement. Now the Wikipad is officially going on sale on June 11 in the U.S. for $249.99, with a global launch expected for the summer.
If you haven’t heard of it before, the Wikipad is an Android gaming device. It was originally slated as a 10-inch tablet, which was displayed at CES last year. It disappeared for a little while after that, but reappeared earlier this year with a 7-inch display running at 1,200×800 and the same quad-core Tegra 3 chipset.
Despite coming out with the more comfortable 7-inch size, the makers of the Wikipad are still planning to release a 10-inch version at some point, though nothing more than Christmas 2013 has been mentioned for a potential release date. Either way, the 7-inch model will be at the forefront of this product line.
The Wikipad definitely isn’t the only one of its kind either, and it will be facing off with some definite competition, like the more expensive $349.99 Nvidia Shield. Retailing for $100 less than that is an obvious advantage for the Wikipad.
