Archos GamePad 2 on the way, stops by the FCC

Last year Archos announced the GamePad, which was basically a gamepad wrapped around an Android tablet. The concept was surely intriguing, and it eventually reached the US in February for a pretty good price. However, we’ve yet to hear about the Archos GamePad breaking any sales records (even Archos’ own). That may have something to do with the chipset of choice that was employed in that device, a rather average one. Also,...

13.3-inch Archos FamilyPad 2 announced, coming soon for €299

Archos has officially announced the FamilyPad 2, on Facebook of all places. This is obviously the successor to the first FamilyPad that was unveiled in November last year and went on sale one month later. For the new tablet, Archos decided to slap its own branding in there, instead of going with the Arnova moniker as it did for the original device. That’s an interesting decision, seeing has how Arnova has always been...

Mere hours after the 11.6-inch member of the family got its details leaked, Archos decided to officially unveil its new Platinum line of tablets. These are undoubtedly the most high-specced devices the French company has ever made.

The GamePad will be in stores in the US sometime next month. If you want to buy one, you’ll need to pay $169. That,...
