Archos GamePad now available in UK for under £130

archos gamepad ukFancy trying an alternative to the PS Vita (sorry Punk and Lizard)? Well, UK residents can now get their hands on the new Archos GamePad.

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.
