wikipad 720 Wikipad gaming tablet passes through FCC

The 7-inch Wikipad gaming tablet has just passed through the FCC. This combined with their own self-imposed deadline of the end of spring could mean that the launch is coming very soon.

If you’re itching to play some of your favorite mobile games on a bigger screen with a controller attached to it, then you may or may not have already heard of the Wikipad. The device claims to have the features of a fully functional tablet, as well as the robustness of a real controller to use when playing games.
