Wikipad7-inch tablet with gamepad controls to sell for £249.99

Wikipad has announced that its 7-inch gaming tablet will go on sale in the UK from Sept. 27, priced at £249.99, following the U.S. launch a couple of months back.

The much-delayed tablet with gamepad controls will be sold via "from a number of well-known retailers at launch," through distribution partner MSE.

The Wikipad features a 1280x800, 7-inch display and is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. When it arrives in the UK next month it'll come up against strong competition in the small tablet space, not least from Google's cheaper and more powerful second-gen Nexus 7.

Why does companies continue to make tablets more expensive and less powerful than existing models? One reason : Fool the consumers who are not aware of other models. In other words, consumers satisfaction means nothing anymore.

OR they all have a dumb R&D and/or marketing team.

I'm thinking the same thing. I have the MOGA Pro for my S3 and love it.

Gaming tablet with 1gb RAM? Isn't that a bit low?

They should drop out of the tablet game entirely and make that controller accessory for the Nexus 7!
