We have word that the Archos Gamepad will be coming to U.S. outlets sometime in February, and will likely retail for a very affordable $169.99. The tablet has been out in Europe for a bit now, and is doing pretty well there. Overall what you get is a fairly robust 7-Inch Android tablet with a game controller built-in to the device and some gaming specific software as well. Here's a quote with a few more details on specs and functionality,

The GamePad’s buttons work ‘out of the box’ with around 1,000 well-known games. In case your favorite isn’t one of those, fret not for there’s solution. Archos has a button-mapping tool shipping preinstalled on the tablet, and that will allow you to pair any button to any virtual in-game control.

The Archos GamePad has a 7-inch 1024×600 touchscreen, a dual-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A9 processor, 8 GB of built-in storage expandable via microSD, 1 GB of RAM, a front-facing camera, Wi-Fi, and a G sensor. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Does this look like a gaming device you could get behind despite the coming launch of the OUYA, the GameStick and the NVIDIA Shield?
