Archos to produce Android gaming system


Archos did exactly this. The game tablet features game controllers on both sides and can be held comfortably with both hands. Archos CEO declared that the new tablet was born because of the support for game controllers offered by version 4.0 of Android. Archos might not have access to Play Store out-of-the box as history suggests. Archos CEO Henri did not offer any more details on this but many manufacturers choose to lock their devices and provide a customized interface. Example: Kindle Fire the multimedia EBook reader from Amazon, or better yet Ouya, a $100 game console powered by Android.

There are over a thousand games in ’s Play Store that are compatible with the upcoming gaming tablet. Archos plans to release it October this year for a retail price of $300.
