The Arnova 8 is a budget tablet from Archos featuring an 8 inch, 800 x 600 pixel display, Google Android 2.1, 4GB of storage, and support for 720p HD video playback. The tablet went up for pre-order a few weeks ago, and now it’s in stock and shipping from Amazon for about $161.
The tablet has a resistive touchscreen and it Archos only promises up to 5.5 hours of video playback, so the Arnova 8 clearly isn’t a top of the line model. But for $161 plus shipping, it’s probably one of the most versatile tablets in its price range.
Update: J&R now has the Arnova 8 in stock as well, and the retailer is offering the tablet for $160 + free shipping.
