Don't worry guys, I can speak the native tongue of Gamestop execs, bullshittese. Let me translate for you:
"Nintendo announced the launch date of the Wii U and it's fairly close, so we're going to hold back our device a couple weeks to compete with it and drive up our sales. Hopefully customers will confuse the Wikipad for a Wii Pad. Why else would the difference be one letter?"
Any consumer that believes the wikipad is a good idea for fellow consumers is a moron.

Sadly there have been people here that vehemently defend this.
Why you'd want to lock yourself into an unproven hardware platform that's currently in high rates of advancement is beyond me. As soon as you get it, it's going to be 6 months behind the tech. curve. Tegra 3 is already old and mostly lackluster, and doesn't really have good graphical games to the extent where it justifies buying a tablet designed with gaming in mind for such an unimpressive price.
The fact that it's from gamestop alone made me question it's build and quality. I don't associate gamestop with good practices, quite the contrary with how little they pay for used games and than mark them up significantly to make money. Majority of their stock is used, and very little new from what I recall.
The price tag alone verifies that it is overpriced and specs still leave something to be desired for the price point.
