Not to long ago a rumor popped up that video game retailer, GameStop -- would be developing their own Android tablet to sell in their retail locations. Seems a portion of the rumors were true at this point as GameStop has now reportedly teamed up with Asus, Acer, and Samsung to offer up 'specialized' Android tablets pre-loaded with seven quality Android games and support for the GamesStops own tablet controller.
Right now, its been suggested to be a pilot program so not all Gamestop locations will these tablets available but who knows? If all goes well with the pilot Gamestop could widen the availability in an effort to attract more customers. Would you really buy a tablet from GameStop though? Not sure they'd be first on my places to shop when scoping out a new tablet.
