Handheld gaming is always changing. From the early days of Game Boy, where the graphics were a blocky black-and-white, to the crisp, clean graphics of tablets today, handheld games are a great way to entertain yourself or your child anytime—especially while stuck waiting at an airport, to buy a car or in the doctor’s office.

There is a new player on the handheld gaming market. The Wikipad 7 Android Gaming Tablet is the first tablet created specifically for gaming. Learn more about this newly released device, and see if it may be the best gaming option for you and your family.


The Specs

The 7-inch Wikipad Android gaming tablet operates on the Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This is the same processor that operates several tablets by Asus, Sony, and the child-friendly table systems by Nabi. When first announced, the Wikipad was going to be a 10-inch tablet, but the company went with a 7-inch version. However, a 10-inch version is to be released later in 2013. The display is 1,280 by 800 pixels, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage complete the package giving it enough oomph to operate all your favorite portable games.


What sets the Wikipad apart from other 7-inch tablets is the detachable dual-analog controller. This makes the tablet feel more like a gaming system and allows gamers to get more precise controls over their games. However, since the controller is detachable, the tablet works just fine as-is. The fact that this is a dual-use device means that you and your family will get more use out of this tablet than you might either a tablet or a game system alone.

As a tablet geared towards gaming, one of the biggest questions has to do with what games will be available to play on it. The tablet will have access to the Android market, so all your favorites like “Angry Birds,” “Cut the Rope,” “Ruzzle” and “Words with Friends” are available. However, to set it apart from other tablets, the Wikipad also comes loaded with Nvidia TegraZone (Nvidia’s arcade system), PlayStation Mobile and has the capability to stream games from Big Fish Games..

The price for this tablet and the detachable controller is $249. This is quite an improvement over the initially announced $499 for the 10-inch version. At this price, it is an affordable addition to your family’s collection of Internet-capable devices.

Market Audience

The reasonably-priced Wikipad Android is a tablet geared towards families. The gaming tablet is an ideal way to keep kids entertained and civil as you finish up at the Dallas car dealership, wait for your delayed flight in Newark and watch as everyone in the waiting room but you gets to see the doctor. Since it’s relatively sturdy, you will not mind handing it over to your brood and letting them have a turn. However, it is not only a gaming system. You will be able to check your social networks and play more adult games.

Where to Buy it

Android’s cutting-edge tablet is now available at your favorite electronics retailer. If you are having trouble finding it locally, Amazon is always a great place to buy electronics. The return policy is very flexible and you can rest assured you will get your order in a timely manner.
