  • With the Ouya gaming cube, the Archos gaming tablet and older Wikipad gaming slate, the Android world is starting to become a real threat for consoles. Now the Wikipad tablet got some fresh details, after laying in mystery for many months. Early this year the device was announced and shown in prototype form and now the tablet gets some actual specs.

    The Wikipad tablet will feature a 10.1 inch IPS display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and 16:10 format. The device weighs 560 grams and is merely 8.6mm thick, making me wonder what they cut out to make it so slim. Shown at CES 2012, this tablet was initially a 7 inch unit and not it has become bigger. The final model will rely on the quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 T30 1.4 GHz processor, as well as 1GB of DDR2 RAM. Wikipad ships with 16GB of storage and a 23.46 Wh battery, capable of 6 hours of continunous gaming and 8 hours of video playback.

    Instead of the tapered edges, the slate will come with flat sides, like the iPhone 4 or 4S for example. The back panel will sport an elevated plastic lip, that enhances grip in any holding position. The product runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has a controller add on, connecting from the bottom with a proprietary port. This one is designed similarly to the Xbox 360 joystick, with two sets of triggers, bumpers and analog sticks. There’s even a pair of cameras on board this device, an 8 megapixel one at the back and a front 2 megapixel shooter.

    Future models of the device will also get a 3D display. How cool is that?
