French company Bigben is taking a page out of the Wikipad playbook and launching a new Android tablet designed for gaming. It features a detachable game controller that gives you D-pads and other buttons for controlling games on the tablet without tapping on the screen and covering up the action with your fingers.
It’s called the GameTab-One, and it features a 7 inch display and Rockchip RK3188 quad-core processor.
With that CPU, the tablet should offer decent performance. But overall the GameTab-One has the specs of a mid-range or low-end tablet, not a top tier device.
It features a 1024 x 600 pixel TFT display with limited viewing angles, a 5-point capactive toucshcreen, a 1W speaker, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and 16GB of storage. It does have 2GB of RAM though, which is more than you’ll find on most tablets in this class.
The tablet runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, supports HDMI output, and has a 3-axis tilt sensor.
There’s no word on if or when this tablet will be outside of France, and I suspect that the design isn’t exclusive to Bigben. Don’t be surprised if we see other companies offer gaming tablets with similar hardware.
