New ARCHOS GamePad2 listed at FCC


The FCC is now listing the new ARCHOS GamePad2, a product refresh of the Android portable game console. Not much is known about the new GamePad, the tests on FCC site just reveal there should now be Bluetooth support that was missing in the original product, WiFI is single band (2.4 GHz) supporting 802.11 b/g/n standard.


As we pointed out in our review of the first GamePad product review, the main issues on the first version of the product were the limited performance of the RK3066 processor, an average screen and the poor battery life, let’s hope this has been improved on the new version. On the FCC blurry pictures the GamePad2 case look quite similar to earlier version, it’s yet hard to know if the game controls have been improved.
