Archos FamilyPad2 is a 13.3 inch tablet running Android 4.1
Archos has announced the Archos FamilyPad2, a sequel to the first FamilyPad tablet that carries a mammoth 13.3 inch screen. With resolution of 1280 x 800, the screen is not going to provide an outstanding pixel density. Powering the FamilyPad2 is a dual-core 1.6GHz processor with a Mali 400 MP4 GPU crunching the graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board with 8GB of native storage that can be expanded by using the 64GB microSD slot. The back and front camera are both 2MP and Android 4.1 is installed right out of the box.

To help users handle an unwieldy 13.3 inch display, the Archos FamilyPad2 ships with a "quick stand" and will be coming soon to Europe at a price of 299 EUR ($389 USD). U.K. and U.S. pricing has yet to be announced although the tablet is expected to launch in those two countries as well. The original was introduced in November, launched in December, and has now been replaced by this new model. 

Whatever your reason for needing a large screened tablet, there are not too many Android powered models with a 13.3 inch screen. If you can get past the low-res display and focus on the features that come with Android 4.1, you might end up patting yourself on the back for having the insight to purchase the Archos FamilyPad2.

Seems like a great deal, but man, 114PPI is really pushing it. 0_o

Great screen resolution sounds synonymous with a large screen. Why buy a larger tablet for work or any other reason other than watching HD movies?

FYI...size doesn't matter, your laptop screen is basically an age old tech LCD...a crappy LCD/LED that is with gagged edges and in MANY ways inferior to IPS which can be found on most tablets....IPS color reproduction is second to none and is a lot friendlier to the eyes (doesnt strain you for hours unlike LCDs)...try to compare a 1080p LCD vs a 720p IPS then come back and telll me which one is better....
