  • In a recent interview with Wikipad CEO James Bower, Engadget found out why the Android gaming tablet costs $500 and what it aims at delivering to the general public. The 10.1 inch slate is the first product that Wikipad will bring to the market, even without sponsors and angel investors, which is an impressive feat.

    Wikipad funded the whole idea and since this product was unveiled back at CES 2012, you probably already know it’s a 10.1 inch Android tablet with gaming controls attached to the case. I’m talking about a proprietary and removable gamepad, as shown in the picture above. The product will hit GameStop on October 31st and the CEO sees this as a combo between the iPad and PS Vita, considering that the users actually buy them both, meaning the Wikipad is actually cheaper if you think about it.

    This slate uses an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core CPU, expandable memory and supports games from Sony’s PlayStation Mobile platform, plus games streamed via Gaikai. The controller segment offers two analog sticks, a D pad, four front action buttons and shoulder buttons and triggers. The device comes in silver/black, offers 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage and runs Android 4.0.3. It even has a HDMI port and the bulk of sales are expected in the holiday season.
