    Gamestop's WikiPad Android gaming tablet has been delayed indefinitely. Apparently, they felt that the experience of using the device was not quite solid enough. They delayed it to add some last minute refinements. Here's a quote with their official statement,

    It's a bummer that this intriguing device will take longer to come out, but it's appreciated that a company recognizes when their "cake needs to bake a little longer." Perhaps they are figuring out how to bring Jelly Bean to the tablet instead of ICS...

    The only refinement it needs is to make it $150 - $200 less. This will fail at the $499 price tag.

    Even at $300 it would be barely tolerable.
