Arnova 90 G3 budget tablet hits the FCC

An unannounced tablet from Archos showed up at the FCC website this week. It’s called the Arnova 90 G3, and while there isn’t much information available, it will likely have a 9 inch display and a low price tag.

French tablet maker Archos tends to sell relatively inexpensive tablets, and the company’s Arnova brand is reserved for the cheapest models.

I did find one product listing for an Arnova 90 G3 tablet at a Spanish retail site. But I kind of hope the specs listed are wrong — because they’re kind of lousy, even for a tablet that could sell for under $100.

According to paratupc, the Arnova 90 G3 features a 9 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, 4GB of storage, WiFi, and a microSD card slot. It has a front-facing camera and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. There’s no mention of the processor, but some of the other members of the Arnova G3 family feature ARM Cortex-A8 chips while a few of the higher-end models have faster Cortex-A9 processors.

I’m not sure I’d buy a phone with an 800 x 480 pixel display in 2013, let alone a tablet.

But if you’re looking for a bargain rather than decent features, paratupc says the Arnova 90 G3 could ship in Spain starting April 8th, 2013.

      I already filmed this type of tablet. Sub-$100 retail for 9″ is impressive, I filmed in a factory
