Archos ChefPad announced


French company Archos has had their fair share of Android-powered devices in the past, and this time around, it is no different with the introduction of the new ChefPad. The name of the tablet itself would have given the game away, as this particular tablet was specially designed to survive in the kitchen – since it would target cooking enthusiasts who do not mind having a digital cooking assistant that also packs enough firepower underneath the hood in order to deliver a decent personal entertainment experience.

Just what kind of hardware do you think we are able to find underneath the hood of the Archos ChefPad? For starters, there is a dual-core 1.6GHz processor that will be accompanied by a quad-core graphics processor, not to mention having the flexibility of capturing self-portraits with the front facing camera and a back facing camera, too, as both of them weigh in at 2-megapixels. Full HD (1080p) video playback is also supported, while you will be able to enjyo direct access to thousands of apps, videos, and music to cook by thanks to the ChefPad’s compatibility with Google Play.

The 9.7” Archos ChefPad will run on the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, and it ought to hit the market sometime this June for $209.99 a pop. What makes the ChefPad special would be the inclusion of the Chef Apps Selection, where aspiring Chefs are able to pick and choose from a selection of the best cooking apps which range from recipes, cooking tips and cooking TV to cooking assistant apps. This will be an exclusive app program that curates the best of all apps from Google Play regardless of the category, making it a whole lot easier for the end user to discover the most suitable content. Other hardware specifications include 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal memory that can be expanded via a microSD memory card slot, Wi-Fi connectivity and a mini HDMI connector. Any takers for the Archos ChefPad?

This is a great concept, but I like that my tablet has so many more functions in my life. I bought my current tablet after I started working at DISH, and not only do I use it while I’m cooking, but also when I’m at work, or just hanging out. I record cooking shows of my favorite chefs, and I stream my DVR recordings with DISH Anywhere on my tablet while I cook; it’s almost like having a professional chef right there in the kitchen with me.
