WikiPad faces delay as team tries to refine the experience

Originally set to make its debut this morning, the WikiPad gaming tablet has officially been put on hiatus in order to ensure the “first product is the best tablet and entertainment experience at launch.” The tablet, originally available for pre-order since September, is a 10-inch tablet running Android that intends to change the scope of mobile gaming.

The company has said that customers who pre-ordered the device up until today, October 21st, will receive “refined and upgraded bundles” when the device is eventually released. The delay is attributed to the company choosing to take advantage of a “last minute opportunity” which will allow them to “perfect the WikiPad bundle.” Of course there’s no word on when the device will hit stores, so stay tuned for the latest updates. Moreover, you can read the official statement after the break.


The Wikipad team has been relentlessly working with our manufacturers and partners to perfect the Wikipad bundle to ensure our first product is the best tablet and entertainment experience at launch.  There is 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.

We have informed our retail partners about this delay.  For those who pre-ordered the Wikipad at GameStop through today October 31st, we will deliver the refined and upgraded bundles as well as a special bonus gift with the pre-order.

We are very eager to deliver the Wikipad experience and are passionate about excellence.  We apologize for this delay and want you to know that we are committed to bringing you the very best, high-end gaming tablet possible.
We are in the final stage and will be announcing the new date soon.
