WikiPad 7-inch gaming tablet hits the UK September 27th

If anyone still remembers the WikiPad we have some good news for customers in the UK. After having a slew of delays last year, missing their end of October release date, then re-announcing the device in a smaller 7-inch Tegra 3 package earlier this year, the WikiPad is finally available. And we now have a UK release date too.

The 7-inch Tegra 3 powered slate that docks into a cumbersome dock for a full "console-like" gaming experience finally hit the streets stateside back in June, although we haven't heard much since then. However, this week we've learned that those gaming in the UK will be able to buy one come September 27th.

I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather just get the more powerful, more up to date NVIDIA SHIELD gaming console and call it a day. However, if you like the idea of having a 7-inch tablet you can take out and walk around with, then dock into the gamepad then this might be for you.

The WikiPad gaming device has a 7-inch display powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The 1280 x 800 resolution screen is decent, and it all runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. So it's a little behind the times. It also sports 16GB of internal storage and will be available in the UK on the 27th starting at £249.99. We're hearing it will be available from a wide array of well-known retailers in the UK.

Did you forget about this tablet and get a SHIELD, or is it still on your radar? Let us know in the comments below.

    We love our WIkiPad. My son broke both of his arms 4 weeks ago and could not use the iPad or even his Wii. But the WikiPad controllers allowed him to play games – which was awesome because that is all he can do right now! When he puts it down I pick it up and play it! From the look and feel we were hooked at “hello”! It’s pretty damn cool!

    Wish this thing was a more pocket friendly 4-5″.

    better to have a tablet in my opinion, the sheild is too expensive and Tegra 4 is Tegra 3 if you lok at it — simply a gimmick
