Archos reveals the FamilyPad 2, a faster 13 inch Android tablet
The Archos FamilyPad has only been around for about a month, but as expected, Archos is already giving its 13 inch Android tablet a bit of an upgrade. Archos is showing of a new FamilyPad 2 tablet at CES this week, and while it looks a lot like the original, the new model has a faster processor.
While the original FamilyPad shipped with a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and 8GB of storage, the FamilyPad 2 has a 1.6 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 chip and 16GB of storage.
The rest of the specs are unchanged, including 1GB of RAM and a 13.3 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display. The tablet runs Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
A 13 inch tablet isn’t as portable as a 7 or 10 inch model, but there’s a reason Archos calls its biggest tablet the FamilyPad. It’s designed to be used around the house and you ca use it to watch videos together with family or friends, prop it up on the kitchen counter to read recipes while you cook, or lay it flat to play a two-player game of air hockey or Monoploy with aother user.
