Archos FamilyPad: Big Enough for the Whole Family

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Archos introduces the FamilyPad, a 13.3-inch tablet designed for whole families to gather around and watch movies or play digital board games that come pre-installed into the device.

The Ice Cream Sandwish-powered Archos FamilyPad has 10 times the multitouch capability, making the screen responsive to up to ten finger inputs at the same time. That amazing feature aside, the device does not have the best internal hardware: an HD display with 1,280 x 800 resolution, a microSD card slot, 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, HDMI output, and 2-megapixel cameras on the front and back. It would also offer “a variety of email accounts for each family member.”

People in the United Kingdom can purchase the Archos FamilyPad for £274.99 (around $438) when it arrives in December, while those in the US might have to wait for its arrival.
