A snippet of some of the most popular Wikipad games on Google Play.

The Wikipad comes running stock Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, packing all the usual bells-and- whistles you’d expect, including; Google Now, Android Beam and Project Butter.

Consumers based in the U.K. and the U.S. will have access to over 700,000 business, entertainment and gaming applications from Playstation Mobile Games, TegraZone and the Google Play Store.

Straight out of the box, the Wikipad comes pre-loaded with three awesome games; Hockey Nations, Dead Trigger and SG:DeadZone. But, if these don’t sound like your cup of tea, you can always navigate to one of the above stores and download popular games, like Grand Theft Auto, NFL Pro 2013, Real Racing 3, Need for Speed, Asphalt 8: Airbone, Star Wars and even the incredibly addictive Candy Crush Saga.

Wikipad Removable

The Wikipad can easily be removed from the partial housing attachment.

The Wikipad is a remarkable device and I thoroughly enjoyed the three weeks I had using it. The unique partial housing controller attachment fitted in my hands perfectly, and was a pleasure to use.

The NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, combined with the 12-core NVIDIA GPU, makes the tablet incredibly snappy. It executed any task I threw at it flawlessly, and never slowed down to take a breath. It’s more than capable of running every game on the Play Store on its highest settings, and that alone showcases the sheer power of this device.

I firmly believe that the Wikipad is a strong competitor for the NVIDIA Shield, and absolutely annihilates Archos’s GamePad. I certainly wouldn’t be disappointed if I spent £249.99 ($400.89) of my own money on this wonderful tablet/controller combo.
