Hands on with the Archos GamePad 2 at CES


Last year at CES, Archos showed off their GamePad tablet device. It was a pretty unique tablet-hybrid, but it wasn’t without faults. This year, Archos has brought a much improved GamePad 2 to CES that improves a number of things to create a really great Android gaming experience.

The device runs a quad-core CPU with a Mali 400 GPU and 2 GB of RAM for excellent performance, and the 7 inch screen has a 1280 x 800 resolution for crisp details. The gaming buttons on the device have been polished and improved with the GamePad 2, and Archos has included a handful of new software tweaks and improvements. Overall, it looks like a great follow-up to the original GamePad. You can check out our hands on video below to see it in action.
