I have watched Alvin and the Chipmunks in cartoon form back when I was a wee lad – and for those who read this and wonder just what this old geezer is talking about, claiming that Alvin and the Chipmunks started off as a motion picture, all I can say is, there is still plenty for you to learn, young padawan. Back to Alvin and his merry Chipmunks – strange to see how they have made a relatively successful re-entry into today’s culture, where their three movies actually grossed over a billion dollars in the process. This has caused Archos to sit up and take notice, hoping to ride on the chipmunk wave by offering the Arnova Child Pad that will tie in with the home video release of Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked.
On the outside lies a bright plastic case as well as Chipmunk-themed wallpaper and apps when you boot it up. This 7″ device is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box, so there is no need to wait for an operating system update just in case you were wondering. With 800 × 480 resolution, a single-core 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 4GB of internal memory, accompanied by a microSD memory card slot and a front-facing camera, it ain’t too shabby considering all you need to fork out is $129.99. Bear in mind this is a child-centric tablet before making your purchase!
