Archos Gamepad 2 is a tablet for gamers
We’ve come a long way in the realm of gaming since the days of Pong. Whole worlds can be accurately displayed to us through the storyline and artwork in games. While we love the latest and greatest games that are coming out, the platform that we play them on is the only issue we face.
There are tons of options out there, each with their own pros and cons. You can play on PC, console, on handheld gaming platforms, or your tablet or phone. Of course, the latter are only capable of so much. However, there are always new ways to play, and the Archos Gamepad 2 is hoping to be the new kid on the block. It will provide you with a 7” HD screen, has a quad-core processor, and comes with 8 or 16Gb of space. There are dual thumb sticks, a D-pad, and abxy buttons. Of course, there are also shoulder buttons, and they boast having a ‘improved button click feeling for a better gaming experience’.
This obviously has a touchscreen, but is huge improvement from smartphones which make you cover up the screen with your fingers to play. This runs on Android Jelly Bean, and both versions have a microSD slot that will allow for more storage. This will cost you around $200, and comes out at the end of this month.
