After missing a few deadlines, it looks like a reworked model of the Android-based Wikipad will finally be released at retail on June 11 at a better price point of $249. A 10-inch version of the hand-held gaming device was supposed to be released last October and was to be sold for close to $500. That model was scrapped in favor of a seven-inch version that does not include a rear camera.
The Wikipad does feature a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, a quad-core Tegra 3 processor with 12 core Nvidia GPU and "true widescreen" HD screen, 16GB of storage with a micro SD for an additional 32GB, HDMI out, and a detachable controller.
The Wikipad will be available at launch at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and TigerDirect.com next week (June 11) in the U.S. and UK. The Android table will hit the rest of the world this summer.
