Archos’ even lower-cost brand, Arnova, is set to launch a huge tablet. Literally. The Arnova FamilyPad was just spotted doing its thing over at the FCC, and it’s got a 13.3-inch touchscreen. No typo there.
Arnova already sells the ChildPad, which is obviously geared towards appeasing the younger masses. With the FamilyPad, presumably the company thought that one of these devices could be shared between members of a family.
Thankfully, all the important specs of this new tablet are available. The screen will have 1280×800 resolution, and there will be a 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a 2 MP rear camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera, Wi-Fi, USB OTG, HDMI, and a massive 10,500 mAh battery.
Of course, this being Arnova we’re talking about, do expect the FamilyPad to be very cheap when it launches (that, by the way, explains the processor).
It remains to be seen whether there’s really a market for 13-inch tablets, but maybe there is. After all, a couple of years ago few would have anticipated that a 5.3-inch smartphone would be successful at all – yet the Samsung Galaxy Note has been.
