    The Archos Gamepad was just released in the United States and is available for purchase. You can grab the Android/Jelly Bean Gaming tablet with built-in controller for just $179.99. Here's a breakdown of some of the specs:
    • 7-inch display (1024x600 capacitive 5 points multitouch screen)
    • 1.6 GHz dual-core processor with Mali 400MP graphics
    • 1GB RAM
    • 8GB* + microSD Slot (SDHC compatible up to 64GB)
    • Dual 1.2MP and 2MP cameras on Front and Back
    • mini HDMI output6 for 1080p HD gaming (Mini HDMI / HDMI cable sold separately)
    • 14 Physical Buttons and Revolutionary Mapping Tool
    • Dual analog thumb-sticks
    • Full Android 4.1/Jelly Bean Tablet as Well
    We have to say, for the price, this seems like a phenomenal deal for a dedicated Jelly Bean gaming device with built-in physical controller. Could this be a "sleeper" hit?

    Here's a link below to grab one.
