Archos GamePad packs a nice thin design with a steel frame finish. During Archos press conference in March, 2012, Crohas explained some details on how tablet are usually built following the model of Apple Ipad, with an machined aluminium body where a high quality glass is applied. Archos on the other hand has developed their own technology over the past 3 years. The tablet structure is made by highly resistant stainless steel embedded in a plastic enclosure. An extremely thin (about 1/10 mm) metal frame surrounds the screen as you can see on the picture below. The plastic screen surface does catch fingerprints though and it is not easy to get them off.

Compared to some previous Archos models, it seems there has been a lot of efforts in the tablet build quality, as the pieces are now better adjusted, the whole device seem quite solid and the materials feel quite good for this price range.

Connectors

The upper tablet side holds the connectors, from right to left:

  • the HDMI connector (mini HDMI format, aka HDMI type c connector)
  • a tiny hole for the microphone
  • headphone connector, usual 3.5 mm mini-jack format
  • micro USB connector…
