Gameloft and Archos announced this week a partnership to optimize Gameloft’s hottest titles for a brand new Android gaming tablet, the Archos GamePad 2. Said tablet was also announced today and it’s detailed after the break.


We already knew the French company had this product in the pipeline, but here it is finally in official manner. An early prototype was shown back in the days of CES 2013 and in August we saw an FCC filing of the device. We’re getting here a 7 inch slate with a 1.6 GHz quad core Cortex A9 chipset and a quad core graphics processor, the Mali 400.


Inside we find 2 GB of RAM and the display here is a 7 inch 1280 x 800 pixel unit. We’ve got a front facing camera, gaming controls and shoulder buttons, too. The Archos GamePad 2 will be available in 8 GB and 16 GB versions and they will also have a microSD card slot for extra storage. The device comes with Android 4.2 out of the box, plus GamePad GameZOne installed. The price tag of the product is around $245 and Gameloft promised 2 free games when you pick up the slate.

Hit games Asphalt 8 and Modern Combat 4 will be preloaded here.
