A few days ago, Samsung announced their new GamePad for mobile devices. We had originally seen the device earlier this year as a prototype, and thankfully the final product resembled nothing like what we saw initially.

We’re still slowly trying to wrap our heads around last night’s Samsung Galaxy S4 reveal as there was just an insane amount of information dumped onto the public all at once. But Samsung did not only unveil the Galaxy S4 as they also showed off a number of accessories that will work with their newly announced smartphone, as well as some other Galaxy S devices.
Sure, most folks had their browsers pointed to sites that talked about the Samsung Galaxy S4 late yesterday evening and early this morning, but this does not mean that there was nothing else interesting that the South Korean consumer electronics giant has up their sleeves at the Samsung Unpacked event. What you see above is a video game controller that has obviously ditched its wired connection to usher gamers into […]
The Archos GamePad which was made available in Europe at the beginning of last month, remains an elusive device for the US market as the French company has not mentioned a wee bit about it.

The Archos GamePad, touted to be the first (and true, whatever that meant in the press release) Android-powered games console that is portable, will merge powerful tablet hardware alongside revolutionary gaming software.
