Wikipad Gaming Tablet launch delayed
The Wikipad, a gaming tablet by Wikipad Inc. has been postponed on the day of its intended launch. This 10.1″ Android powered tablet has an impressive spec sheet along with its unique ‘gamepad controller’, an attachable gaming dock with the familiar gaming console feel to it.
There is a last minute opportunity to enhance the Wikipad bundle as well as a minor refinement needed to ensure our first customers are completely satisfied with the Wikipad. – Wikipad Team
The Wikipad will be running Jelly Bean 4.1 on a quad-core Tegra 3 1.4 GHz processor.

The Wikipad is no longer up for pre-order on GameStop (US$499.99). GameStop export their products to EB Games in Australia. I asked them if they were going to stock the Wikipad but they could not confirm anything. The gaming tablet may become available through grey retailers.
