Archos GamePad now available in UK for under £130
The Archos GamePad is now available in the UK to purchase for a very reasonable £129.
The GamePad is equipped with a 7-inch screen which will squirt out 16 million colours through its 1024 x 600 resolution display and supports five point multipoint gestures.
Under the hood sits a dual-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean running the show up front.
I can’t help but think that the processor is where some cost-cutting has occurred. I’m sure a beefier chip could’ve been inserted.
Archos has gonebonkers with the control options though. This gaming tablet has no fewer than 14 physical buttons including dual analog thumb sticks, together with a mapping tool that helps add physical controls to touchscreen games.
Archos’s GamePad gaming console measures 10 mm thick and weighs 0.7 pounds, and has 8GB of on-board storage which can be boosted to 64GB via an SD card.
