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.

When a tablet gets this cheap, it’s rather hit or miss. We don’t know what corners were cut until after someone tries it.

Unless the CPU is utter crap, it should do the full video file suite of other Archos tabs, no?

At $99, they are really looking to get these into CVS? Soon these damn craptabs will be in stores on hooks in blister packs!
