Archos Gamepad Jelly Bean tablet ships in US for $179
Despite missing its promised <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281619==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/15/archos.gamepad.brings.physical.controls.to.android .gaming/" rel='nofollow'>February launching date</a>, the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281620==http://www.archos.com/products/themed/gamepad/index.html?country=us&lang=en" rel='nofollow'>Archos Gamepad</a> is now available for purchase in the United States. The 7-inch Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" device will run most Google Play games, while also allowing users to customize their preferred control scheme for each game.<br />
<br />
The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281618==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/08/archos.tackles.android.from.multiple.angles.form.f actors/" rel='nofollow'>Archos Gamepad</a> is powered by a 1.6Ghz dual-core Cortex A9 CPU matched with 1GB of RAM. Graphics processing power is provided by a quad-core Mali 400MP GPU, while internal storage is pegged at 8GB. However, a micro-SD card up to 64GB can supplement this. A 1.2-megapixel front facing camera is also included, as is a 2-megapixel-rear camera. The display is a 1024x600 screen, in a 0.3-inch thick enclosure similar in feel to a Playstation Vita.<br />
<br />


In addition to providing an integrated mobile gaming platform that combines touch and physical controls with two thumbsticks, four face buttons, a D-pad, and two shoulder buttons, the Archos Gamepad comes with the French company's Media Center apps. These include music and video apps that also support metadata scraping, auto-subtitles, along with support for multiple codecs including 1080p video decoding.<br />
<br />
The device is available at retail and online for $179.
