OnLive is working with Wikipad to make streaming cloud PC games playable with the Wikipad’s included controller encasing. OnLive is a cloud gaming service that lets users play games via streaming to devices that can be connected to the OnLive controller or other compatible controllers.

The gaming themed Android tablet Wikipad has had a new OTA update pushed out to it today. This update brings a crisp new version of Android to the tablet, that being Android 4.2, as well as some other much needed features including control mapping. Wikipad has also announced a new content partner which comes in the form of WildTangent.
Wikipad has decided to branch out in the gaming peripheral industry by announcing their newest product which is called the Gamevice. This particular gaming peripheral is pretty much as the name suggests – a detachable game controller that Android gamers can use with their Android devices.
Last week the Android gaming-centric tablet Wikipad made its way through the FCC making the tablet’s release quite possibly happening soon. Well apparently that ‘soon’ now has an official date for the tablet’s US launch while a worldwide launch will follow shortly afterwards.
One device a lot of people are actually looking forward to but have had to wait a long time for already is the gaming-centric Android tablet called the Wikipad. Having undergone a few redesigns in hardware department, that has been the biggest cause for the delay. It finally looks like the Wikipad may actually be launching soon though as the device has passed through the FCC.
It seems as though Wikipad and the folks at the company re a bit confused as to what they would like to do in regards to the gaming Android tablet they have been developing for what seems like forever and a day. Originally the Wikipad was not planned to be a 10″ Android gaming tablet until the company announced that it would instead be a 10″ gaming tablet. Now, Wikipad has announced that its Android gaming tablet will be a 7″ one that will retail for $250.
The Wikipad Android gaming tablet that was supposed to be released this week has been delayed until further notice. For those of you who had been planning to go to your local GameStop and pick one of them up, you are going to have to wait a bit longer. The new came through a press release which details why the delay is happening.
Finally some solid news about the Wikipad and its release date, at least for when it goes on say at Gamestop. The Wikipad, as you may or may not know, is a gaming focus Android tablet with detachable gaming controls you can add to the side of the tablet. It provides a full set of gaming controls so you can play games using actual physical controls.
The Sony press conference is currently going on right now at GamesCom 2012 and during this press event Sony had a small portion set aside for Playstation Mobile which includes Android devices. During the small segment, they announced something pretty much no one had any idea would be happening.
The Wikipad gaming tablet is something we have been keeping our eye on ever since we checked it out at CES 2012. Slowly since then the tablet has been evolving with the addition of full gaming controls that attach to the side of the tablet and then Gaikai being integrated onto the device right out of the box.
