Consumer electronics firm ARCHOS has launched a new gaming tablet that combines gaming controls with Android for a combined tablet and gaming experience in one.
With the new gaming tablet, Gamers can also access email, Internet, apps and more along with the access to all their favorite games.
The GamePad features a 7-inch, capacitive screen, physical control buttons and analog sticks and also includes automatic game recognition and mapping tools to control compatibility with every advanced Android game.
The GamePad is a Google certified tablet that has full access to Google Play for the tens of thousands of games available. It runs a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor combined with a Mali 400mp quad-core GPU.
ARCHOS founder and CEO Henri Crohas said, when Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, was first released they included game controller support within the framework and that is when it decided to build the GamePad.
"Thanks to the mapping and automatic game recognition systems included on the GamePad, we already have over a thousand android games compatible with the ARCHOS GamePad's physical controls, including back catalog titles that originally didn't include physical controls," said Crohas.
