While we don’t usually like to talk about gadgets unveiled by no-name companies or technology manufacturers, the most recent news we got from the 2012 CES in Las Vegas has made us break our rule and present to you the WikiPad 3D glasses-free 8-inch tablet with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Featuring a very ingenious design, to say the least, the WikiPad (no connection whatsoever with Wikipedia!) comes with a separate optional gaming dock, which turns it into a gaming rig similar to the Wii console controllers.

Running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the WikiPad has most of its technical specs and features a bit blurry right now, but it still looks awesome and makes us tingle with excitement. The 8-inch display is set to feature a 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution (is that physically possible?) and the producers are claiming that the slate will be able to run pretty much any kind of video format, both 2D and 3D, with no glasses or additional accessories needed.

There’s only 8 GB of internal storage space, according to the producers’ claims, but the tablet features a microSD card slot that can expand the on-board memory to up to 64 GB.

Getting back to that cool optional gaming dock, it features two analogue sticks, a d-pad and four colorful buttons, being stylish as heck, but a bit cramped, if you ask me. Still, the tablet/gaming gear might be a gagdet to watch in the coming months, featuring a mini-HDMI port and being therefore able to connect to a big screen gaming rig.

The WikiPad 3D tablet with Android 4.0 is coming to the technology market this spring, according to official announcements, but unfortunately we have no news about where it will be made available or about its price tag.

Stay tuned on our website in the following hours or so, when we expect additional details to come up, details that might help us determine if this gadget can in fact be a groundbreaking device or if it’s a dud and has no chance of ever seeing the light of day in the US or worldwide.
