I like the idea of catering to a specific audience, but I think that the one great thing about tablets (and smartphones) is that they are so versatile. It will be interesting to see if this type of segmentation takes off..
“The ChefPad will be stuffed with an exclusive piece of software called the Chef Apps Selection, which is aimed squarely at the aspiring food aficionado. Oddly, the feature doesn’t include any apps of its own – Archos describes it as a tool that “curates the best of all apps from Google Play” in a specific category.
“The ChefPad is the first ARCHOS tablet to use this filtering technology,” Loïc Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS said. “This is just the beginning for ARCHOS tablets using this technology; we will continue to launch new and exciting themed tablets that curate apps in such categories as kids apps, games, educational apps, business/productivity apps and more.”
Archos’ new ChefPad tablet offers a 9.7-inch touchscreen (1024×768 pixels) and runs Android 4.1, an older version of Jelly Bean, on an unspecified 1.6 HBz dual-core processor.”
