HD IPS Screen – play in high-def
The ARCHOS Gamepad 2 features a 7 inch HD screen perfect for gaming. The widescreen 1280 x 800 pixel resolution gives an amazing gaming and multimedia experience and IPS technology ensures amazing colours and brightness as well as perfect viewing angles.

Powerful Processor – play amazing 3D games
Powered by an A9 generation quad-core processor running at 1.6GHz, the ARCHOS Gamepad 2 has more than enough power to play the latest 3D games smoothly. Coupled with its fast Quad-Core graphics processor and 2GB of system RAM mean that slow-downs are a thing of the past, whether in Gaming, Android or showing a web page.

Dual thumb-sticks and buttons – play with precision
Improving on the buttons, sticks and directional pad of the GamePad 1 was one of the main focus points for the ARCHOS Gamepad 2. The ARCHOS Gamepad 2 features more precise, incurved dual thumb-sticks, double buttons on each shoulder, a single part directional pad (for easier hadokens) and a vastly improved button click-feeling for a better gaming experience.

Extra-large battery – play longer
By adding in a 50% larger battery than normally used on a 7 inch tablet and thanks to super energy-efficient 28 nanometer processor technology, the ARCHOS Gamepad 2 has dramatically improved battery life whether in gaming or simply when browsing the web.

Sleek and portable – play in style
Imagined with gaming in mind, the back of the ARCHOS Gamepad 2 features a textured grip surface and a curved edge for comfortable hand placement when playing.
Despite its big HD screen, the ARCHOS Gamepad 2 is still small enough to fit in your jeans pocket for when you’re gaming on the go. Weighing less than 400g, the ARCHOS Gamepad 2 has been balanced with gaming in mind so your arms don’t get tired.

Compatible games out of the box – play now
The ARCHOS Gamepad 2 uses Google's standard SDK for physical buttons on Android, ensuring compatibility with past, current and future games. It's already embraced by hundreds of game developers that include physical controls in the code for their games.
To show off this compatibility ARCHOS and Gameloft have teamed up to preinstall two of Gameloft’s latest full premium games made for physical controls on the ARCHOS Gamepad 2 so that you can start playing the moment you take it out of the box.
ARCHOS Gamepad 2 - Asphalt 8 Airborne thumb

Asphalt 8 Airborne – 2013’s edition of the amazing Asphalt racing series takes the game further than it has every gone in both gameplay and graphics. Featuring 47 licensed super-cars, over 180 single player events and races to play, simultaneous and a-synchronous online play and the most stunning visuals seen on an Android racing game.

The envy of other manufacturers, this patented tool lets users map any touch-screen button game to work with the physical controls of the ARCHOS Gamepad 2 for an improved android gaming experience for hundreds of thousands of free and paid games.

The ARCHOS GameZone – play what you want
