A pick of the first complete unit, fresh out of the production line, was uploaded on Twitter this week. The company’s promise that the tablet will be on the retailers’ shelves in spring of 2013 seems to be coming true.
Wikipad Inc.’s original announcement was made on February, but there were no news since. This Thursday, though, a photo uploaded on Twitter showed the very first newborn wikipad in the hands of the happy “parents”. The pick speaks for itself.
According to the specs, the wikipad comes with a 1.4 GHz Tegra 3 quad-core SoC from Nvidia, 1 GB RAM, 16GB memory with micro SD slot for an extra 32GB storage, 7-inch IPS screen, front-facing 2 MP camera and dual-band Wireless-N and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
With the dual-analog controller offered as an attachable accessory, the wikipad is meant to be a flexible tablet for both gaming and browsing. The 7-inch screen offers full 5-point multi-touch Android 4.1 Jelly Bean functionality and a default resolution of 1280×800, while the attachment of the controller makes the tablet a pure Android gaming device.
Its launching price would be at $249 and we are expecting to see it soon in the high street.
