Archos 70 Tablet with Android 2.2 Available Now
Following the release of their Archos 43 internet tablet yesterday, Archos has just dropped the new 7-inch model in their store. The 8GB Archos 70 tablet runs Android 2.2 and retails for a reasonable $279.99. The tablet a has resolution of 800×480, features a 1GHz processor, TV output, WiFi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth, and USB support. Like the Archos 43, it also has Samba and UPnP protocols built-in for streaming of video. It also supports 3D graphics for video games with OpenGL acceleration. And since we’re talking Android 2.2 here, users will enjoy full Flash content.
Archos has the hardware specs to compete with the other brand name Android tablets (Samsung, Huawei, etc) but the lack of Android Market support might turn a few customers away.
Archos plans to ship a $350 model which features a 250GB (traditional/spinning) hard drive model shortly
