Wikipad is First Glasses-Free 3D Android 4.0 Tablet

The Wikipad supports 2D and 3D content running on Android 4.0 and will be available with a game controller attachment, the manufacturer announced today. There is not much information about the hardware of this device, which is promised to go on sale this spring. However, Wikipad does note that it boasts a 8-inch screen with a 1080p resolution - 1920x1080 pixels would be quite impressive, if it proves true.

The standard features include front and rear cameras, 8 GB of flash storage, HDMI and USB 2.0. There was no information about the processor hiding under the hood. The previously mentioned game controller attachment adds a traditional game console controller experience, but works somewhat against the touch experience responsible for the tablet market's success and now moving towards the PC.

There was no word on pricing, but we don't think that this is a $200-class device. The high resolution screen, the 3D feature as well as the gamepad may push this device much closer to the $400 neighborhood.

    Yes, actually has an interesting look. Only the name 'Wikipad' is a bit strange.
    I'd expect something like an eBook reader type device with a B/W screen and built in Wikipedia support.

    This awesome for ROMs and MAME stuff.

    But the ROMs wouldn't be able to benefit from the 3D effect.
    Well, maybe that's a good thing! ;-)
