If you’re in the market for a decent gaming tablet that can be docked into a cradle with dedicated controls for getting your digital mayhem on, Wikipad wants to hook you up. They’re taking 20% off the WikiPad tablet, bringing its price from $199 down to a cool $159 with free shipping.

Adding even more to the value is the new partnership between WikiPad and the folks at OnLive, the online game-streaming service that lets you play console quality games without needing the hardware to run it natively. With it, you’ll get a free month of OnLive’s PlayPack subscription that gives you access to over 250 games to stream to your tablet. That typically costs $9.95 per month so it’s not a bad way to trial their service.

They’re also throwing in a month of their CloudLift service (now worth $7.95 after a timely price drop) that allows you to stream select games you already own on Steam and other gaming marketplaces. CloudLift lets you play natively while you’re at home, and will easily serve up your goods over the internet whenever you need to trek away. Cloud saves sync automatically with your Steam account so you can easily pick up where you left off.

Wondering what the WikiPad is packing to handle all this gaming goodness? Here’s a look at its now-modest spec sheet:

  • 7-inch HD display
  • 16GB of internal storage (microSD up to 32GB)
  • NVIDIA Tegra 3 chipset
  • 2-megapixel front camera
  • GPS w/ GLONASS

Decide you want in on this deal? Just head here and use coupon code E3WIKIPAD to get all the aforementioned discounts and bonuses. It might not be the most powerful tablet around these days but it sure sounds like a pretty good value if this is something you’ve been eyeing.

    Too bad as a gaming device this one is so dated… Plus a decent phone + Moga Pro blows this thing away!

      the interesting part about this device was it can act as a stand alone tablet. but the problem is mobile tech at a very rapid pace right now making the internal getting out dated very fast. anyway does moga controller clip compatible with 7 inch tablet? all i know people use it with phones but i haven’t heard much if the clip can handle much bigger size than phones.

        It isn’t but they include a stand in the package.

      I prefer my Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ and Moga Power Pro to using my Note 3 and the Moga personally.

    Of course, you still have to BUY most of the games on OnLive…
