Hi, I'm a newbie here but like many people no doubt, am much taken by the new Gamepad 2 and I want one in time for Christmas!

It was meant to be on sale in November but a quick internet search shows that none of the main UK suppliers have any in stock!

Even Archos.com say that no more will be shipping until second week in December!

Elsewhere on internet, there is zero news about stock and availability.  I posted on Archos fans forum about release date but no one has replied.

No one seems to know when it will be in the shops or available online!!

Can someone please tell me what is going on?  I really would like to but one but I'm not confident of getting a quick delivery.Frown

Looks like Archos is again facing some availability problems.

I think the GamePad 2 (8 GB version) was sold only on their web store so far, actually that's where I bought one. As you said it's not in stock anymore and now shows availability for second week of December.

This French store LDLC had an initial delivery date of November 19 and they now changed it to unavailable. We'll report in this topic if/when we find some availability in other stores.

EDIT: Not completely related, but the GamePad 2 16 GB version has an availability announced for early 2014, according to a recent comment from ARCHOS France on Twitter.

 

You may also consider the JXD S7800b as an alternative, it's a rather similar device apart from the battery which is expected to be bigger on the ARCHOS. We're expecting one soon and should be able to make a detailed comparison.

Cheers.

Thanks belatedly Admin!  I've looked into the JXD S7800B as suggested and it looks pretty good.  Would love to see a comparison between it and Archos Gamepad 2.

I must admit though that I am completely baffled that Archos are not marketing the new Gamepad 2 like crazy with Christmas coming up.  A lot of people are going to be disappointed.

Will try to do a JXD S7800b vs ARCHOS GamePad2 comparison soon.

Cheers.
