Archos announces 13.3 inch FamilyPad2, to be priced at €299



Archos has just unveiled their latest tablet – The Archos FamilyPad2 which is the successor to the first FamilyPad.

For what its worth the screen size and resolution haven’t improved but most improvements are under the hood, Archos has upgraded the SoC from a single core 1GHz to a standard 1.6Ghz dual core SoC with the Mali-400MP4 GPU, the same found in the flagship Galaxy series, performance should be breezing fast for the most part with those specifications in addition to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which comes preloaded. A serious disadvantage is the use of a sub par display with a lowly resolution of just 1,280×800 pixels, that same resolution can be found in those cheapish 7-inch tablets out there.

1GB of ram kicks in while 8GB serves as internal storage (which a relatively low amount these days). This tablet appears to have low end specifications but the MicroSD slot is capable of accepting up to 64GB of additional storage. It’s worth noting that Android Apps can’t be natively installed in any external storage. Other than that its dimensions are 337x230x11.6 mm, and it weighs 1.3 kg.
