Archos Rolls Out GamePad

Dec 11, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Archos announced the retail availability of the GamePad, a new type of tablet that combines physical gaming button controls and an Archos patented mapping tool with a full Android-powered tablet experience.


According to a release, bringing physical buttons and analog thumb-sticks to mobile gaming, the Archos GamePad blends power with mapping software that allows users to link the virtual controls of any game to physical controls. A thin and light Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device, the GamePad also features full access to Google Play and Google Mobile Services.

"Android device users spend more than 9 hours a month gaming on their devices and yet are not completely satisfied with the touch-screen experience," says Henri Crohas, Founder and CEO of Archos. "We feel this area of gaming is proven and will continue to grow. With the introduction of the GamePad we are uniquely positioned to feed the demand of gamers who want a better gaming experience on a tablet."
