Revised seven-inch WikiPad launch shifted to spring
After missing its original ship date <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278846==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/09/07/detachable.controller.tegra.3.processor.improvemen ts.post.ces/" rel='nofollow'>in October</a>, Android-focused gaming tablet <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278847==http://www.wikipad.com/" rel='nofollow'>WikiPad</a> has seen a redesign and a new launch date announcement. The device no longer boasts a 10.1-inch screen, and now has a smaller 7-inch display and a smaller price. The new version reportedly ships this spring, and has been cut to $249. <br><br />
<br />
The tablet still runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and has 16GB of storage, boostable with a microSD card. A Nvidia Tegra 3 processor with 1GB of RAM powers the device. Also equipped are a front-facing 2MP camera, a micro-HDMI port, and a 4100 mAh battery. Gaming input is provided by two analog sticks, a D-pad, and four buttons. The display runs at 1280x800.

Wikipad president of sales Fraser Townley told <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278845==http://www.joystiq.com/2013/02/07/wikipad-resurrected-shrunk-down-to-7-inch-design/" rel='nofollow'><em>Joystiq</em></a> with regards to the retooling and release of the seven-inch tablet that "the overwhelming opinion was that, although $500 was justifiable for what we were delivering, it was a tough one for a lot of the gamers."
