Archos unveiled their first sub-$100 Android tablet
There are new product pages up for the Arnova 7 and Arnova 84 that I showed you last week, and the Arnova 7 has a price listed. Archos will be selling it for $99, which isn’t quite the first you might think. The Arnova 7 had been first announced with a retail of 99 euros, so having the US retail at $99 is actually the norm.
The Arnova 84 doesn’t have a US price listed, but it does have a set of specs. The specs are largely the same as the Next3, but the Arnova 84 has 4GB Flash, not 2GB. It has an 8.4″ resistive touchscreen, a microSD card slot, Wifi, accelerometer, microphone, and speakers. It’s running Android v2.1, and the video and audio abilities are about what I expected.
The Arnova 7 has the 7″ resistive touchscreen you’d expect, along with 4GB Flash, a microSD card slot, and Wifi as well as a speaker and microphone. It’s running Android v2.2 and it has video and the video and audio abilities are about what I expected. Surprisingly, it also has USB Host. It’s going to be interesting to see what works.
