The Archos 70 features a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel capacitive multitouch display and runs Google Android 2.2. For $275 you can pick up a model with 8GB of solid state storage and a microSD card slot for expansion. A model with a 250GB hard drive will be available soon for $350.
The rest of the tablet’s specs are actually pretty much the same as those of the Archos 43. Both tablets have 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processors, excellent support for audio and video codecs, including support for 720p HD video playback, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, a G-sensor, and a front-facing VGA camera.
Archos says the tablet should get up to 10 hours of battery life while you’re surfing the web, 7 hours while you’re playing video, or 36 hours while you’re listening to music.
You can order the Archos 70 from the Archos Store. You can also check out my earlier article for more details and photos of the tablet, or check out the videos after the break for an overview of all five new Android tablets from Archos.
