According to the latest update, the tablet will now have a 10-inch IPS display and will be running on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). With only 560 grams in wight, it is said to be the lightest tablet at this size.
The gamepad will be equipped with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30 1.4GHz quad-core processor (520MHz GPU) and 1GB of DDR2 RAM (1066MHz). With these specs, the tablet is more powerful than recently launched Google Nexus 7.
The first version of the gaming tablet will not be loaded with 3D display but the future models would be. It will feature a rear 8MP camera and a front-facing 2MP camera. The company has not yet decided on storage capacity but the device will be shipped with minimum 16GB internal memory.

Although the release date of the Wikipad is not yet finalized, the president of the company, James Bower, says that this should sometime later this year.
