ASUS FamilyPad 13 inch Android tablet: specs and price


Archos is a reputed smart device maker which has already listed several Android smartphones in its collection. Now Archos is again in discussion with launch of its latest smart device. It is a 13 inch Android Tablet. 13 inch and still a tablet?? This is the question that stroked my mind when I firstly heard about this device. Yeah! It come with 13 inches display and is still a tablet. It is to be noted that it comes with a screen size which is very similar to many mini laptops (even I’m using one). However it comes with entirely different specs in terms of OS and other relevant features.

Technical specs of ASUS FamilyPad
ASUS FamilyPad houses a 13 inch wide screen with 1280x800 pixels resolution. By comparing the resolution with overall screen size it seems that it will be a low quality screen as other devices like Nexus and iPad from Apple comes with better resolution for smaller screens even. So it’s not at all a good sign for investors. It runs on Android 4.0 ICS OS  and  houses a Cortex A8 series processor which comes with 1 GHz chipset and 1 GB RAM. Today when we have Android 4.2 Jellybean then I am really unable to understand why ASUS packed Android 4.0 ICS to their latest gadget. It should be packed with at least Android 4.1 Jellybean piece as that would have glorified its overall specs to a great extent.   

Talking about memory, it comes with memory extension option which allows you to store good amount of required comes with both front as well as back rear camera’s where both measures 2 MP in resolution. It allows you to enjoy videos on even more wider screens like TV and other LCD’s with HDMI port connectivity. It comes with USB port which allows you to connect any USB compatible peripheral with it. 

Company claims that it is packed with very strong battery which provides approx. 10 hours backup time and 6-7 hours video playback time with such big display. it measure 2.9 pounds in weight and comes with better docking angles which enables you to enjoy videos from wider viewing angles.

So in all Archos FamilyPad comes with:
• 13 inch wide screen
• 1280x800 pixels resolution
• Android 4.0 ICS OS
• 1.2 GHz chipset Cortex A8 processor
• 2 MP front and back camera
• HDMI and USB connectivity
• 10 hours backup battery

Price and availability
Archos FamilyPad  will be launched in UK with £275  starting price. It is believed to get launched during December 2012.
