Engadget Summary

Part portable console, part tablet -- the Wikipad was hoping to be your go-to destination for gaming on the go, but it falls short. The lone bright spot for the Wikipad is its 7-inch display, which Destructoid calls "good enough." After that, things start to go downhill, starting with the controller, which IGN says suffers from "achingly cheap quality" with the "face buttons clacking with every press." The Wikipad also has some serious battery life deficiencies, as Pocket-Lint only eked out a "few hours" of gaming -- not even close to the company's eight-hour estimate. Luckily, the Wikipad can at least play games, with Destructoid reporting that in spite of its mid-range specs, the Wikipad "can handle the vast majority" of what Google Play offers. At $250, you're essentially paying a premium for a custom controller that delivers a subpar gaming experience. If you spend a bit more, you can buy a Nexus 7 and MOGA Pro instead which, though not as convenient, delivers a better overall package.
