Wikipad re-emerges smaller and more affordable
On the cusp of hitting the market last fall, theAndroid gaming tablet hit a snag. Citing "a last-minute opportunity to enhance the Wikipad bundle as well as a minor refinement needed to ensure our first customers are completely satisfied," Wikipad Inc. a month before the tablet's scheduled launch date.
Just over four months later, the company is once again preparing to release the Wikipad. And since we saw it last, the tablet has undergone a fairly major design tweak, going from a 10-inch screen to a 7-inch version. The smaller screen also brings a new price tag, dropping the launch Wikipad to $249 from a loftier $499.
The refinement came from a "technical issue with the controller," said Wikipad managing director Fraser Townley, which the company was afraid might lead to returned units. The delay for the controller retooling then pushed the timing of the Wikipad's launch up against the end-of-life cycle for the 10-inch panel. That prompted the switch to the 7-inch screen. The company says that a 10-inch model is still forthcoming, although the timing and price are both to be determined.
The 8-inch tablet is a simple replacement of the 2015 model.
