The Wikipad – Paving the way for Portable Android Gaming?

I love Android, it’s my mobile OS of choice. It powers my phone, and my tablet, and technically my browser since I use Chrome. I believe Android has the most to offer as far as an OS, but it still has a lot of growing to do. The tablet market is of great interest to me, since it sees the most changes. A little over a year ago, almost all Android tablets were the same. Tegra powered, 10 inch, and averaging around $400 for price point. Now, we have such hits as the $200 Kindle Fire and Nexus 7, the innovative content creator Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, and lots more coming. No one has really tackled gaming as their focus with their tablet though, until now. Wikipad is bringing us their 10″ Tegra 3 powered, gaming focused offering. Will it be unique enough to be noticed in a sea of imitators? Continue reading
