At CES next month in Las Vegas, we’ll be getting our first look at one of ARCHOS’ new tablets, the 70b. It’ll be a budget tablet, priced at $199, without the bad news that usually comes with a budget tablet. It will have full access to the Android Market, and will run Honeycomb, making it the first Honeycomb tablet to retail for under $200.
Stay tuned for our CES coverage in January, when we’ll have more information about specs and features. For now, though, the 70b looks to be a more than decent tablet at an amazingly affordable price – that sounds like cause for excitement. Also exciting is that the 70b should be available in stores sometime around when it is showcased at CES.
With this enhanced Android tablet, users will benefit from:
• An affordable price starting at $199 for 8GB
• Smoother multi-tasking and a faster web experience thanks to the upgraded RAM
• Brighter colors with a high resolution capacitive screen
• Android 3.2 Honeycomb, the Android version designed for a tablet
• Access to a full array of apps with the Android Market and its 300,000 apps such as news, eMagazines, eBooks, social media, games and more
• A full multimedia experience with upgraded multimedia ARCHOS apps for video and music
• HDMI output, giving users full access to their Android experience on their TV including all the pre-loaded apps, video playback, 3D games, photos and all the Android Market apps
