Archos GamePad hitting US in February for $170

Archos launched an Android powered gaming gadget back in August known as the GamePad which was initially made available to UK buyers. Some in the United States were a tad jealous as it seemed a decent alternative to PS Vita and GameBoy. It didn’t hurt that it was also cheaper. Archos looks to be bringing this tablet to the United States as Archos rep recently confirmed it that it will arrive in February. With a price tag of $169 it doesn’t seem a bad value at all.
