Archos Unveils Two Devices For Budget Conscious

Archos has officially unveiled their new 7-inch Home Tablet and the price may surprise you.  For less than $200, customers can grab this mobile internet device (MID) with a 600MHz processor, 2GB storage, microSD slot, and 800×480 resistive touch-screen.  Although the screen size is a few inches larger than that of their A5 unit, the chipset is somewhat slower.  According to Charbax of ArchosFans, we can expect an 8GB version (or larger) as well. 

Archos 7

Archos also dropped their 8-inch model which looks like a large picture frame that pulls double duty as an Android device.  Designed primarily as a web device and for video playback, it weighs less than a pound and is only 12mm thick.

The Archos 7 is due in in April while the Archos 8 follows in May with both selling for under $200 a piece.
