Because of manufacturing hiccups, the company swaps roadmap steps
WikiPad's CEO really disagreed when people said that the eponymous gaming tablet was too expensive at $499 / 499 Euro, but it ended up having to skip launching it anyway.The company said that it wasn't the price dissension that made it push back the tablet indefinitely.
Instead, it said that one component needed for the 10.1-inch display stopped being manufactured.
As a sort of consolation move, WikiPad has now moved to the 7-inch model of the gaming tablet, which was, supposedly, always part of the plan.
Based on the Tegra 3 SoC, it has 16 GB of flash storage, 1 GB of DDR3 RAM and a price of $249 / 249 Euro.
The design has been tweaked a bit too, putting a, b, x and y buttons on the upper right and a chrome finish on them.
A 2-megapixel camera is part of the specs too, and the native resolution of the display is 1,280 x 800 pixels.
