Archos is plumbing the depths of crappy tablets

Archos have announced another couple cheap (£99 and £129) tablets, this time for the European market. First up is the Arnova 7, a tablet I haven't found elsewhere yet. It's base don the usual 7" resistive touchscreen, Wifi, and it's running Android v2.2.

You should probably recognize the other one. The Arnova 84 has already shown up in the US as the Nextbook Next3.  It has an 8.4" resistive touchscreen and wifi. Assuming it has the same specs as the Next3 then it also has 2GB Flash, a microSD card slot, accelerometer, headphone jack, and speakers. For a cheap tablet it's not bad.

BTW, Archos have launched a new website for the Arnova brand. I guess they couldn't stomach the thought of supporting the tablets on the Archos website.
