The Wikipad 7 will come preloaded with a trio of games to test out the gamepad: Dead Trigger, Shadowgun: Deadzone and Hockey Nations. Dead Trigger should put the pad through its paces!

Last year the Wikipad was announced and I was instantly intrigued. A 10″ Android gaming tablet with an attachable controller? What’s not to love, right? The tablet was supposed to launch last fall but the company decided to re-approach the drawing board and bring us something sleeker and more affordable.
The new Wikipad is a smooth 7″ tablet now and will be a pocket friendly $249. The controller is still customer built to turn the pad into a cooler looking and more fun version of the Wii U gamepad. tucked inside in the sexy 7″ body will be a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 16GB of on-board storage with the ability to 32GB more via a MicroSD slot and Android 4.1 a.k.a. Jelly Bean for on the go computing. Heck the pad is even going to have Onlive support!
The lead in image above shows just how much nicer looking the smaller form factor is and how sweet games will look on it. I personally can’t wait to play Grand Theft Auto III on the Wikipad. My geek gut says the Wikipad is a will have gadget.
For your geeky viewing, I enclosed the latest press release. Hit the break to peep it. Now to just wait for Spring for it to drop.

I am going to try to keep you up to date on the awesome, the likely and the you’ll probably never see it. As always day one which is really pre-CES has shown off a lot of cameras, TV’s and video streaming/smart boxes. UHD is a new term that’ll start to become familiar just as OLED did last year however the hopes of the TV companies this go round is to make Ultra High Definition an affordable product we see in consumers’ homes, something the OLED TV’s haven’t quite been able to do. Even Vizio has jumped on the Ultra HDTV train and if anybody can bring them to consumers it’s going to be them, matching both quality and affordability as they always do.

Rumours of the next generation of consoles have been vast and varied, especially with the lack of any major new hardware at this years E3. However images have surfaced on the developer site Assembler Games showing the Xbox 720 development kit. The user who uploaded the photos, “DaE“, was looking to sell the supposedly legitimate kit for $10,000. While these images were met with overwhelming dismissal, regarding them as fakes, Digital Foundry, after speaking to a number of developers working on next gen projects and “DaE” himself/herself, confirmed that these images are the real thing. The images also feature the name Durango which has long been rumoured to be Microsoft’s code name for a next gen console.
