Gadmei Electronics Technology presenting the WikiPad, a glassed-free 3D tablet at CES 2012. The 8-inch tablet is running on Andorid 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and is currently powered by a single-core 1.2 GHz processor. Additional features include an 8GB storage, 2GB of RAM, and a yet to be named GPU. The folks over at The Verge managed to test the device and they found it to be pretty much responsive and sleek. The 1280 x 800 display also seems to function well with its rich and bright colors, although they mentioned that the tablet has a higher tendency to reflect light and the screen to capture fingerprints easily. But take it easy. This tablet is very capable of showing smooth content at 1080p 3D.
The WikiPad also comes with a gaming grip accessory that has additional controls – shoulder buttons and the standard four face buttons that can be connected to a microUSB port. Some of you might be reminded of Razer’s Project Fiona which revealed a Core i7 windows gaming tablet, we reported on earlier this week. Although the Wikipad has a removable controller instead of Razer’s built-in controller.
The WikiPad may not be the ideal tablet for everyone, but it sure is a must-see and might be interesting for for some gamer and 3D enthusiasts. Lastly, the developing team also has a strong partnership with GaiKai, so you can play those games as much as you want. As for the price, Gadmei is planning to set the bar at $249. That will be all for the complete package composed of the tablet and the additional controller.
