Not worth the paper its printed on

quad core and 1gb of ram ,should be good for old skool games heat added :-D

Same price at zavvi for anyone with a 10% off code or the welcome code if they work on tablets.

it's mostly plastic!

Supposed to be good for emulators.

Some reviews:

I got mine a couple of weeks ago from ebuyer, I'm loving it so far, been hammering the N64 emulator!
It's a shame the custom android version is a little outdated, but I have had no trouble running any games yet...

Ended up ordering 2 (my brother wanted 1 as well). Hope the controls work well - if so, it will be a steal for £68. I'll be using it mostly for emulators - as they are usually awful on touch screen

I got one of these well worth the money. As well as emulators you can map the controls to most touch based games

Android tablets (not sure about this one) usually have a small hole to perform a hardware reset. Put something in it (like a paperclip end) and see if it will reboot.

This one hasn't would u believe. Been on phone to Wikipad support. They talked me through recovery kernel. Still no joy. Gotta go back. Oh well. :-(. Want an exchange tho as I want it!!

Did you have it long enough to see if the version shipped has the firmware with the pre-installed control mapping app for non Wikipad specific games?
(according to YouTube, this was late in being released and you have to update the tablet, if you have older version)

I had to update mine to get the mapping tool, but I have only actually used it on one game anyway...

Thanks, was it difficult? Can it be done from the tablet, or do you have to link to a PC?

Ridiculously easy, just go to in the settings and there is an option to download and install it there, no need to go anywhere near a pc
