Wikipad, Inc. has announced that it will be launching a 7-inch Wikipad tablet in spring 2013 for $249. It will have an attachable game controller like the previously announced 10-inch model (which will apparently launch later) along with similar specifications, including a Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, 16GB of storage, a micro SD slot, with Android Jelly Bean.
“We wanted to get Wikipad into our community’s hands and what we found was that the smaller 7″ form factor just seemed right,'” said Wikipad president of sales Fraser Townley. “The smaller frame delivers an aggressive price while keeping the same amazing specs.”
“[The 7-inch category] seems to be where the market is alive,” said Townley. “The affordability factor is what’s important to people. We took the steps that we had to take to preserve the brand.”
