The Wikipad gaming tablet takes aim at consoles

Tablets
-I'm Dan Ackerman and we're here taking a very first look at the Wikipad, it is a portable handheld gaming system. It's Android tablet-- it's a lot of different things. What you get with the basic Wikipad package is an Android tablet, it's very thin, it's very light. It actually got this little ridge on the back that makes it a little easier to pick up off the table and it also slides into the included accessory, it's a game controller. And the two parts are designed to slot in perfectly together that connects the game controller and now you can use these 2 thumb stick, these buttons, the trigger is on the back to play just about any Android game, pretty much any Android game that has game-pad support and that's pretty much all of these days. The Wikipad has its own proprietary kind of a contact navigation system that's gonna show your games available from the NVIDIA Tegra zone, from the Google Play Store, from Sony PlayStation Mobile Platform which has Android games that you may not even know that. And of course it's a Quad-core Tegra-based system, so it's pretty good at playing games. The whole package-- it's very lightweight actually, it feels a lot lighter in the hand [unk], think it would but still feel very sturdy. The game control it feels very solid in your hand, actually feels a lot like the upcoming Nintendo Wii U which we've all spend a lot of time playing. The Wikipad launches October 31st for $499, there's one package, you get the tablet and you get the game-pad that designed to work together and, even though it's an Android base and it plays a lot of the same games that other products do. It's interesting to see this sort of proprietary combination of controller and tablet and we're really interested to see what happens when it formally launches. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Wikipad.
