Since Christmas is coming, you must be wondering yourself just what kind of gifts do you think you can get for the rest of the family. Well, I am quite sure that a tablet or new smartphone is high on most people’s lists, and a quarter of a year after the Archos FamilyPad hit the FCC, it will finally make its market debut – just in time for the frenzied holiday shopping season too, I might add. The Archos FamilyPad will sport a 13.3” display, making it the largest tablet out there in the market at the moment, which is ideal to have the family gather around it.
Sporting 10x multitouch support, the Archos FamilyPad is tipped to be the focal point of families in the living room, although I believe that Archos might need a few more releases in the same vein and some wicked marketing before such an idea will overtake the TV or video game console. The Archos FamilyPad’s display carries 1280×800 resolution, and will feature 8GB internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, HDMI output and a front and rear camera – both of them being 2-megapixel shooters. Running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Archos FamilyPad will retail for £274.99 in the UK, as US residents might have to play the patience card for a little while longer.RELATED
