Even in the age of the NVIDIA Shield, dedicated Android gaming handsets are still a bit of a rarity, which is all more of a reason to take a gander at the leaked GamePad 2 from Archos. The device first reared its head at the FCC, and thanks to an online retailer — which has since scrubbed all references to the product — we’re now treated to a press shot and a smattering of technical specs for the successor to the original GamePad. This time around, it’s purported to sport a slightly more dense 1,280 x 800, 7-inch IPS display, along with a 1.6GHz quad-core CPU and 2GB of RAM. In addition to the previously available 8GB model, a new 16GB version is said to be in the works, and in both cases, the GamePad 2 will retain a microSD expansion slot. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability, but you can bet that we’ll hear more from Archos soon enough.
