The Wikipad, a gaming focused Android tablet with physical detachable gamepad controls, is set to release on October 31 for $499.
Spec-wise, the tablet sports Android ‘Jelly Bean’ 4.1 , a 10.1″ screen with a 1200×800 resolution, an Nvidia Tegra 3 T30 1.4 GHz processor, 1GB DDR2 RAM and 8GB of flash storage which is expandable to 64GB.
So why are we reporting about this? The Wikipad will also support Sony’s PlayStation Mobile platform and Gaikai, meaning that you can get your PlayStation fix on the platform, despite it not being from Sony.
Preorders start tomorrow, and purchasing a Wikipad from GameStop will give you special extras “including exclusive free, full-length game titles.”
