Wikipad’s Android 4.0 gaming tablet still hasn’t received a definitive release date despite having just half a season left to meet its launch target, but that hasn’t stopped its creator from boosting the feature set. When the tablet does arrive, it will now bake in Gaikai’s game streaming service for you to start playing games as soon as the shrink wrap’s off the box. In return for the long wait since CES, Wikipad is also giving its slate a heavy makeover: the 8.1-inch screen is ballooning to 10.1 inches, while a lighter body will carry an unnamed quad-core processor and an option for 3G. Otherwise, you’re looking at much of the same formula that first emerged in January, which includes traditional gamepad-like controls on either side as well as front and back cameras, 1080p video support and 8GB of space to store your games when you don’t want to bring a microSD card. We’re looking forward to getting our paws on those dual analog sticks soon, but for now you can check the news release after the break.
