Earlier this month details on Amazon's Android-powered slate emerged, including a possible late November launch window. It seems that Amazon won't be the only retailer joining the ever-growing Android tablet market in the future, though, as GameStop president Tony Bartel has told GamesIndustry.biz that his company has chosen the Android slate that it will brand as its own as a "GameStop certified gaming platform." The tablet is currently in testing and, when it launches next year, will initially feature a "modest selection" of games. Eventually GameStop plans to allow owners of the device to stream full console games to the device and play them with a dedicated controller that will ship with the tablet.
There's certainly no shortage of Android tablets on the market now and launching in the next six months, but this GameStop-branded device could be ideal for all of the gamers out there. What remains to be seen, and what could make or break the GameStop tablet, is the selection of games it launches with and how well the streaming experience works for the end user. Any of you think that a GameStop-branded Android slate sounds right up your alley?
