Today Archos have announced the GamePad, a 7&quot; Android 4.0 tablet with gaming controls&#33;<br />
<br />
Archos have announced that the GamePad will be available at the end of October 2012 for under £130 (US&#036;205). That amount of your hard earned cash will buy you a GamePad with a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, Mali 400mp quad-core GPU and Google Play certification.<br />
<br />
Archos are also touting their patented technology of &quot;game recognition and mapping tools&quot; which should make games work easily with the up until now unusual controls on the GamePad.<br />
<br />
Could this be a PS Vita killer? Will the Archos GamePad steal some of Sony&#39;s portable gaming market with a relatively inexpensive Android gaming tablet? Let us know what you think in the comments.<br />
<br />
If the device does prove to be a resounding success, I suspect Sony might be kicking themselves after the Xperia Play &#39;debacle&#39;...&#33;<br />
