The game-changing Wikipad is one step closer to being in the hands of Android gamers everywhere, but one lucky son of a gun was able to see the intriguing tablet in action, courtesy of its creator James Bower. Right off the bat, users are treated to what is a fairly slim and trim profile that is smooth to the touch except for the middle of the back. That section of the device has a square-shaped groove along the back center of the tablet, which is intended to help give it a solid grip. Oh and Bower also touts the groove helps to “keep the tablet cool under stressful gaming power-consumption”.
The big focus of the device is no doubt its performance capabilities and the Wikipad delivers. Powered by a Tegra 3 chip and Jelly Bean, it helps to power games like Cody and a port of famed action-adventure game Max Payne like a true champ. The graphics were fluid as expected, while he controls gave better-than-expected results– thanks to comfortable dual analog sticks and responsive buttons. One minor critique may be the fact the tablet plus controller dock can possibly make the complete unit a little heavier than some would like. Then again, it’s assumed most people won’t be playing on the Wikipad for hours on end.
