7-inch Archos Arnova 7 costs $99, for reasons known


Archos has been, in the past, a pretty good source of sub-10-inch tablets. They've also always been on the cheaper end of the tablet pricing spectrum, which may be either good or bad, depending on your priorities. 

Today, Archos announced yet another 7-inch tablet, the Arnova 7. It runs Android 2.2 and is under $100, but for a few unfortunate reasons. First off, although at a fantastic size, the Arnova's screen is resistive. Yuck! Then there's the fact that Bluetooth, GPS, and any type of camera are completely missing. One good thing, however, is that the device will play 720p video back, although there isn't any information on how that will happen; i.e., we have no clue what this baby's got in it in terms of processing power.

Hopefully, the sub-$100 price won't effect the quality of this device too much. Of course, it probably will; I mean, it is under $100, after all.
