Currently if you want 3D gaming on the go the Nintendo 3DS would be the first thing you think of. The console is doing really well now as sales of the device gather pace. Today we have news of the Android ICS running 3D WikiPad tablet that will take on the 3DS.

The name may confuse you and make you think it has something to do with the Wikipedia website, but it has nothing to do with it. What you have is the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet that also features a glasses free 3D screen, and according to a report on Mobile Magazine it comes with a gaming dock attachment that can be seen in the image above.

This adds to the tablet a D-pad, dual analogue stick, four face buttons and even built-in speakers for your audio. This will mean you can load up classics such as GTA 3 from the Android Market, and could get even better as other classic titles are added.

Having 3D gaming on a tablet will appeal too many but unfortunately there isn’t a great deal of information on specs and pricing available at the moment. What is known is that is capable of 1080p HD playback in both 2D and 3D, and supports many formats such as FLV, H.264, ISO, VC1, VOB, and M2TS. It also has a mini HDMI port along with USB 2.0.

Storage wise it doesn’t come with much at only 8GB but luckily this is expandable up to 64GB via the microSD port. It is set to launch around the world in the spring and will be available online and from retailers. Head to the WikiPad website to find out more.
