Wikipad to Hit Shelves this Spring, Comes in a New 7-Inch Design

By   /   3 years ago

There have been some changes in plans for the Wikipad release. Instead of releasing in a 10 inch model, the Android tablet with removable console-styled controls will now release in a toned-down 7 inch model.

The device was supposed to be released in Winter of last year but was then announced to be pushed back. Fraser Townley, Wikipad’s president of sales tells Joystiq that “an unforseen flaw” in the original production caused them to miss out on the winter timeline. During this time they also decided to act on the community’s feedback and redesign the device.

The new shrunken design will also be cheaper than the original model and will feature the same specifications:

  • A quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 16GB of storage
  • Micro SD for up to 32GB of additional storage
  • HDMI
  • Widescreen HD display.”
  • Detachable console-styled controls
  • Front-facing camera

Except for the removal of the rear camera, pretty much everything remains the same.

The new release timeline for the Wikipad is now in Spring and will be priced at $249, half of what the original was priced at.
