The French PMP maker, Archos has unveiled a new entry-level PMP in the market that will be making its debut at a very affordable price tag of $200. Powered by an ARM 9 600MHz processor, it features a 5-inch WVGA display and built-in Wi-Fi. However, there is no built in Bluetooth. Battery life is stated to be around 7 hours of video playback or 44 hours of audio playback
The Archos 7 Home Tablet is not going to amaze you with its specs or features but you will adore its low price tag and Android operating system that offers a lot of functionality. Consider it as an iPad alternative for a poor person.
So what did we did not like about it? Well, to start with – its stupid resistive screen, which feels so 2002, the one that was used in old Palm and HP PDAs. Also, android market does not come pre installed on it. You will also miss support for Adobe Flash for android, GPS, accelerometer, compass and video output.
