Remember the Wikipad that was unveiled at CES awhile ago? Well, it looks like the gaming tablet’s official specs have been officially revealed. According to an exclusive interview GamesBeat had with its creator, the Wikipad will feature a 10.1” IPS display with a 16:10 1,280 x 800 resolution. On the inside it will pack a Tegra 3 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and at least 16GB of internal storage. It will also feature a 23.46Wh battery that is said to provide up to six hours of continuous gaming or eight hours of video playback. It will also run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. An 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front facing camera round up the package.
The tablet also ships with a controller add-on – the highlight of the Wikipad. A specially designed accessory that gives the tablet physical buttons for you to game with, and if you decide you’re not going to play games you can easily remove it to use the Wikipad like a regular tablet.The controller also features special acoustic tubes that amplify the sounds coming from the tablet. The Wikipad could also have a version that features a 3D display though it will only go on sale after the regular one is released (if it does get released).
No word on pricing or a release date but it’s supposed to be available later this year – probably in time for the holiday season.
