The PlayStation 4 will have to be competing against some major competition when it releases, and with devices like the newly announced Wikipad, things could get competitive.
According to a press alert sent out today, Wikipad Inc. has announced that they will be bringing a new 7" Wikipad tablet to the gaming world this spring for the assumed retail price of $249.
Fraser Townley, President of Sales, spoke about the announcement for the new device and had positive things to say.
"We wanted to get Wikipad into our community’s hands and what we found was that the smaller 7” form factor just seemed right.
"The smaller frame delivers an aggressive price while keeping the same amazing specs," Townley said.
The rest of the release goes on to talk about what types of gaming capabilities this device will have.
"The Wikipad is the only tablet to possess the unique combination of truly immersive video game experiences found in consoles with the functionality and portability of a tablet thanks to its award winning attachable dual-analog controller.
"It offers a premium 7" IPS screen, 16 GB memory with micro SD slot to support an additional 32 GB of storage, ultra-light and thin chassis, is powered by the NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core mobile processor and it is optimized for cloud gaming. With an aspect ratio of 16:10, the Wikipad tablet offers true widescreen HD display.
"Consumers will have access to entertainment and videogame content from partners and services including PlayStation®Mobile, Big Fish Games®, TegraZone – NVIDIA's free app that showcases the best games optimized for the Tegra processor – Google Play™, OnLive and many others.
"When the gamepad controller is detached, Wikipad’s sleek design and full Android 4.1 Jelly Bean functionality make it a powerfully versatile device whether you are surfing the web, reading emails or enjoying films, music and apps at home or on the go."
