Phil Geldard of Archos shows and talks about the release of the Archos Gamepad on the US market, scheduled to happen in February 2013 at the price of $169 MSRP. Archos has been trying to ramp up mass manufacturing to be able to deliver to supply the huge demand worldwide that there is for this really cool product. When Archos started selling the device in Europe before Christmas, they sold out of all of their European stock in 4 hours after making it available on their website. Archos hasn’t experienced such strong demand for a product since they launched their Gen8 Donut/Eclair/Froyo Cortex-A8 Android tablets in 2010. I know I’ll be playing all my favorite N64 games on this device in the months to come, as well as any really cool new Android games that I may find.
This is the coolest Android tablet for gaming, Archos releases it imminently in Europe for 149€, US availability to be confirmed. Here I’m demonstrating some of the latest advanced Android games called Dead Trigger, Rip Tide and a couple other.
Here’s Archos new cheaper 8″ Rockchip RK3066 1024×768 4:3 tablet with smooth Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, thus being released by Archos in January for $149/149€. Consider that european prices always include about 20% VAT taxes which are never included in US dollar prices thus $1 = 1€.
