Archos unveils budget-minded Arnova 7 and Arnova 84 Android tablets


Archos recently announced the budget-minded Arnova 7 and Arnova 84 Android tablets. The company's Arnova line aims to put these devices within the reach of all consumers, so their specs are obviously lacking to folks like us.

The Arnova 7 has a resistive 7-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen, is 12 mm thick, weighs 340 grams, and runs Android 2.2 (Froyo). It also has WiFi (802.11 b/g), 4GB of internal storage, a micro SDHC Slot, and comes with the AppsLib application store (no Android Market or other Google apps). The Arnova 84 is very similar to the 7 except that it has an 8.4-inch touchscreen—too big for discussion here—and runs Android 2.1 (Eclair).

Currently, other details about the tablets, like RAM and processor type, are unknown. The Arnova 7 is expected to be available soon for $99, while the price and availability of the Arnova 84 remain mysteries.

With these specs, buyers will certainly be compromising performance and build quality . . . but the price may be just right for many.
