According to the page spec sheet, we can expect the following:
|CPU: 1.6 GHz quad-core CPU and quad-core GPU (quite likely a Rockchip RK3188)|
Storage: 8GB or 16GB flash memory
Screen: 7″ IPS capacitive touch-screen display with 1280 x 800 resolution
Controls: Dual analog sticks, ARCHOS mapping tool so you can map some games (but not all) to the gamepad controls.
connectivity:microSD card supporting up to 64GB capacity
preloaded games:Asphalt 8: Airborne and Modern Combat 4 by Gameloft
preloaded apps:Google Apps (Google Play, Google Maps, Google+, YouTube and Gmail)
The 3D render of the device shows a design quite similar to the first GamePad, but we are used to some surprises with ARCHOS when we compare the actual product design with the rendered version 🙂
No details given about the battery capacity where battery life was one of the main issue of the first ARCHOS GamePad (you may also check our detailed review)
A reseller price of $169.99 is shown for a quantity of 500 pieces, so it’s quite likely to see the device in the 190 to 200 dollars or euro price range, given the usual distribution margins. A 4 weeks lead time may should get the product ready to acquire for Christmas 2013.
We should see more on the show, from 13 to 16th of October.
