We’re all anxiously awaiting plug-and-play, consumer-grade virtual reality. We can’t wait to see the final version of the Oculus Rift, and try that other VR goggle that beams light directly into the user’s eyes, just like the real world does.
A few days ago Archos showed off its new Android-powered GamePad 2 portable gaming tablet. The company is back to announce an entire new series of reasonably priced Android-powered smartphones called the Titanium line.
Archos rolled out the original Gamepad Android-powered gaming tablet back in December of 2012. The company is back this week with the announcement of the Gamepad 2. The new Archos Gamepad 2 is still designed specifically for gaming on the go, but has received some much-needed upgrades.
Archos has been making Android tablets for almost as long as Android has been around. The company has unveiled a new tablet called the Archos 80 Xenon that promises some nice features in a very portable form factor.
I don’t mind cooking so much when I have time, it’s rather enjoyable but I definitely need to follow a recipe. I can’t just walk into the kitchen and throw things in the pan and make it taste good, I have to have specific instructions.
One of the coolest things about the newer iPad models is the Smart Cover that turns the tablet on and off when you open or close the cover. There also have been a number of iPad Bluetooth keyboards, but most of them add significant bulk to Apple’s slim tablet.
Previous attempts at turning TVs and monitors into huge tablets were either very expensive or were DIY projects.

Hey did you hear the news? You know that chap Will Rockwell? The eccentric gentleman from America, whose house might as well be a factory for all the dreadful clanging and hissing and sparks and smoke coming out from any and every hole, you’d think he was fashioning a personal steamship – but I digress.
In anticipation of the upcoming 2008 CES show, Archos has revealed complete specs and images for their highly-anticipated media hub, the Archos TV+. The compact device may be about the same size as an Apple TV, but it packs in a number of additional features.
Archos today revealed their new 5th generation personal media players, and it looks like a really strong collection. With models starting out at as little as $90 and ranging up to $300 and more, there’s a little something for everyone.
