At the end of August, we alerted you of the Archos GamePad. Archos claims that it is “the first true Android games console”. With a price tag of just £129.99 ($208) and the specs to back it up, the GamePad may be the gaming tablet of the Holiday Season 2012.

In a press release on Thursday, Archos put the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean gaming tablet up for sale. The main focus of the device is to hit the Android market in which Android users spend over 9 hours a month gaming. Furthermore, the Acer GamePad has the following specs:

  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • Google Play and Google Mobile Services
  • 7″ 1024 x 600 pixel display
  • 14 physical buttons and dual “analogue” sticks
  • 1.6GHz dual-core processor
  • Mali 400mp quad-core GPU
  • 10 mm (0.3 inch) thin body
  • Weight of 330g (0.7 lbs)

The Archos GamePad will also sport a completely new mapping tool for games. As you can see in the video below, the tool makes it incredibly easy to integrate the GamePad’s physical controls with touchscreen games. Take a look:
