The Wikipad 7 is an Android tablet with a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display and an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. What makes it special (and sets it apart from similar tablets like the Google Nexus 7 and Hisense Sero 7 Pro) is that the Wikipad is aimed at gaming.

It comes with a game controller which connects to the sides of the tablet and gives you physical buttons, D-Pads, and more.

Wikipad plans to begin selling the tablet for $249 this spring, and this week the Wikipad 7 made it way through the FCC, which is a pretty good sign that the tablet is on track to hit the streets soon.

There aren’t a lot of surprises in the FCC listing, but if you want to get a good look at the WiFi and Bluetooth module or antenna, I guess you can do that now.

The user manual is also available, confirming that the tablet will have dual-band 802.11a/b/gn WiFi, 1GB of RAM 16GB of storage, GPS and GLONASS, a 3-axis accelerometer, and a 4100mAh battery.

While the tablet is designed to fit snugly into the game controller dock, the two devices actually communicate wirelessly over a Bluetooth connection. According to the manual, the connection should start automatically when you slide the tablet into the dock, and a blue light will glow on the game controller to let you know that it’s connected to the tablet.

  1. simple — better than the gameboy they sold 188 million of those i like it- very sustainable idea concept — headphones work – that controller jacket – obviously smart– Mr Thompson i too am a troll! love it Mr editor this is stuff that makes the tech world fun!

  2. Pretty sexy, but you’d still be doing the same thing I’ve settled on doing: Leaving the BT controller in your bag when you aren’t using it.
    I like how they are using Tegra 3! -ALWAYS good for gaming.

    I eagerly await the reviews!
    (Loving my Sero 7 Pro, BTW!)
