Archos intros ChefPad, kitchen-based Android tablet


Archos has a new Android tablet for your consideration, the kitchen-themed ChefPad. Rather than a stock Android experience and traditional tablet, this one is designed to stay in one place.  Specifications are pretty much your typical mid-range device with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a dual-core 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM, and 8GB internal storage.

The Chef’s Apps selection on the ARCHOS ChefPad filters through thousands of apps to provide the best cooking content in a range of categories including recipes, drinks, shopping, cooking TV and more. Whether you are looking for dinner ideas, a good wine match, a balanced meal plan or a smoothie, Chef Apps gets it done.

The 9.7-inch display runs at 1024 x 768 pixel resolution and features a silicon case to protect against spills, greasy fingers, and sticky substances.  Also, the ChefPad comes with an adjustable stand for creating variable viewing angles.

Indeed, the Archos ChefPad is designed to stay in the kitchen but that doesn’t mean it’s limited in capabilities. Users will find expandable storage (microSD), a pair of 2-megapixel cameras, and HDMI support.

    cute concept.. but i’m not sure why i’d get the chefpad versus any other tablet that i could just as well use in the kitchen with a case that would do all that stuff?

    I love cooking along with my tablet nearby, and I do it so often that I had a special shelf put up in my kitchen so that it stays high and dry. Personally, I only need one tablet that can do everything since I travel a lot for my job at DISH. I can stream live TV on my tablet with DISH Anywhere so I always have my shows when I’m away from home, and I can stream my DVR recordings for when I want to try a particular recipe from one of my favorite cooking shows.
