Announced by ARCHOS exactly 3 months ago, the GamePad Android portable game console still hasn't hit the shelves. Pixmania online shop in France had the GamePad in pre-order with a release date of November 23 which hasn't been met and the product is actually not listed anymore on their web pages. A French e-tailer specialized in gaming jeuxvideoandco.com has recently changed the release date to early 2013, while ARCHOS is just giving some vague information on their Facebook.
