The delayed gaming-centric Wikipad tablet will finally arrive in the U.S. this month, as the manufacturer has announced a launch date of June 11. The tablet, which includes attachable physical gamepad controls, will cost $249 in the U.S. The first retail partners will be Wal-Mart.com, BestBuy.com and TigerDirect, with international launch plans due to be announced after next week's E3 Expo.
On the inside, the Wikipad features a 1280x800-resolution 7-inch screen, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, 16GB of storage, expandable via microSD card and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It also has PlayStation Mobile support, allowing you to download PS-certified games from Sony's library of titles. Being a Tegra tablet, you'll also get access to NVIDIA TegraZone.
The Wikipad is a direct response to one of the main bugbears of mobile gaming -- specifically, the hit-and-miss nature of touchscreen controls. The attachable gamepad and low price point certainly work in the device's favor, so will you be picking one up next week? Let us know down in the comments.
