Tablet-like game-pads running Android are going to be a huge thing this year, and a new game pad is set to launch in February from Archos. The GamePad is both powerful enough to run most Android games, and still retains a sleek, lightweight, configuration.

The GamePad is fueled by a 1.6GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 and 1GB of RAM. Graphics crunching is handled by a very capable quad-core Mali 400MP GPU, and internal storage is set at 8GB. Storage can be expanded up to 64GB by adding a Micro SD card. Also featured is a 1.2MP front facing camera with the rear camera weighing in at a mere 2MP.

 

The company has included its own Media Center apps which include music and video apps and 1080p video decoding thanks to multiple codecs. The GamePad also features integrated physical controls and still retains a touch interface as well.
