Even though the Archos GamePad didn't revolutionize mobile gaming, its maker is almost ready to launch a successor. The Archos GamePad2, as it is called, has been spotted in the FCC's database where a few photos of the device during testing have been published.
At a glance, the design of this gaming-centric tablet hasn't been altered much. Just like the first model, the Archos GamePad2 comes with physical gaming buttons on its sides, which are clearly meant to be its stand-out feature. There is a large screen positioned in the middle and we doubt it is any bigger than 7 inches in diagonal. Unfortunately, little is known about the tablet's hardware specs as the FCC filing does not reveal such spicy details. All we know is that the GamePad2 features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Our guess is that the Archos GamePad2 may be announced next month during the IFA expo in Berlin. Presumably, it will be a rather modest, low-priced Android tablet, just like the previous variant, aimed at mobile gamers on a budget.
