Archos has a bunch of different Android-powered tablets available on the market today. The company has basic Android-powered tablets that we're all used to seeing and it has a few interesting options that aren't designs we see all the time. One of those interesting tablets is the GamePad that has physical controls for gamers built-in on each side of the tablet screen.
Archos is back with another new tablet aimed at specific use. The tablet is called the ChefPad and as the name suggests it's intended to be used in the kitchen. The tablet runs Android 4.1 for the operating system and uses a dual-core 1.6 GHz processor.
Other hardware features for the tablet include 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, a mini HDMI output, memory card slot, and front and rear cameras. Both the front camera and rear camera have the same two-megapixel resolution. One of the kitchen oriented features of the tablet is an integrated adjustable stand.
That adjustable stand allows you to prop the tablet up so you can view it hands-free from across the counter while you cook. The tablet also comes in a protective silicone case to help keep the tablet free from various ingredients and to help protect it from spills and splashes. The tablet works in conjunction with an application from Archos called Chef Apps Selection.
That particular app will send users to the Google Play store and filter out everything but apps having to do with cooking. The tablet has a 9.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 768. It does have built-in Wi-Fi and is Google Certified. The tablet also supports full HD resolution video playback. Archos plans to launch the tablet in June for €169.99.
