Most tablets usage are for entertainment purposes, such as watching movies and playing games. Good news for gamers, Wikipad has announced its 7-inch Android Tablet with gamepad. While it is nothing new, with Archos GamePad already available in Europe and coming to the US soon, it is still a great device.
The scratch-resistant display on the Wikipad 7-inch will feature 16:10 IPS screen with five-point multitouch, but it’s the controller that’s the real star of the show. At just 0.4-inches thick and weighing a mere 0.7 pounds, you’ll definitely be able to take your games on the road, assuming they run on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). In fact, users will have access to entertainment content from PlayStation Mobile, Big Fish Games, TegraZone, the Google Play store, OnLive and others.

"We wanted to get Wikipad into our community's hands and what we found was that the smaller 7-inch form factor just seemed right," said Fraser Townley (PDF), President of Sales, Wikipad, Inc. "The smaler frame delivers an aggressiv price while keeping the same amazing specs [as the 10-inch]."
Wikipad, Inc. tells Maximum PC that the 10-inch model is still on the company's roadmap and that its specs might change by the time it debuts, but beyond that, all lips were sealed.
