After it was showcased at CES 2013, Archos’ Jelly Bean gaming tablet, the 7-inch GamePad, is finally available for purchase in America for $179.
Having originally launched the Gamepad back in December, Archos has now announced that the official U.S. launch date for the GamePad is set for February 2013.
Back in August we mentioned that the Archos Gamepad was expected to arrive in Europe by October. While Archos missed that original target by two months, the Android gaming tablet is now finally available for just €149.99.
With gaming being one of the main uses of tablets for many users, it’s no surprise that a number of tablets like the Archos GamePad are hitting the market. We’ve heard about it, and now it’s time to see it in action.
Although it’s already the third gaming console/Android tablet to be unveiled these past months, the GamePad might actually be fortunate enough to undercut its other two competitors and get out the first. The 7-incher might still get more attention than the Ouya and WikiPad, due to a very attractive design and what looks like a more than fair quality-price ratio.
