Want an Archos Android tablet? You’re in luck. The French firm just dished up a slew of them before showing them off at the IFA gadget expo this week.
Pick of the bunch for cash strapped tablet-eyers is the Archos 28 internet tablet, an Android-powered PMP packed with 4GB of flash memory with web-browsing abilities for a wallet-friendly £99. Fork out an extra tenner, and the Archos 28 comes with 8GB of memory at £109.
It’s a little dinky to really be called a “tablet” if you ask us, but there’s also a new Archos 101, with a roomy 10.1 inch multitouch screen, although it’s considerably more expensive at £269 for an 8GB model, or £299 with 16GB inside.
UPDATE: We’ve added some better quality pictures into the gallery above, which should make identifying which new Archos Android tablet is which a little easier!
Whichever Archos Android tablet you choose, there’re some fancy new features as standard, including 720p HD video playback through HDMI TV outputs. Each Archos Android tablet has an accelerometer and supports open GL technology for 3D gaming.
The Archos 4 and Archos 10 Internet tablets also squeeze in a 2 megapixel “HD camcorder” to capture video and photos. Take that, iPad!
Inside each and every Archos Android tablet is a 1Ghz processor and N-standard Wi-Fi for speedy data crunching and wireless skills, and a setting inside Android’s bowels will let every Archos tablet tether to a 3G phone via Bluetooth or USB to hop online outside of wireless hotspots. Each tablet also runs Adobe Flash 10.1, another jab at Apple’s non-flash tablet.
