Wikipad delayed for last-minute tweaks
The gaming-focused Android tablet misses October 31 ship date due to "minor refinement."
The company cited "a last-minute opportunity to enhance the Wikipad bundle as well as a minor refinement needed to ensure our first customers are completely satisfied with the Wikipad" in a press release. Whether those adjustments are hardware- or software-related is unclear, but that they are serious enough to delay shipping at the last minute suggests problems beyond the scope of a straightforward software update.
Wikipad has not announced a new shipping date for its tablet, and Digital Trends reports that GameStop is no longer accepting Wikipad preorders. The company says it will include a bonus gift for existing Wikipad preorder customers, and that it will announced a new ship date "soon."
