Arnova 7 G2

The Arnova 7 G2 is a budget tablet from French device maker Archos. The company introduced the tablet this summer, and now it’s available for purchased from Amazon for $199.99.

The tablet features a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 single core processor, a 7 inch, 800x  480 pixel capacitive touchscreen display, and 4GB of storage. It runs Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread software, and can handle 1080p HD video playback.

Like many other Archos and Arnova tablets, the Arnova 7 G2 includes a built-in kickstand which you can use to prop up the device while you’re watching videos.

The tablet weighs 0.8 pounds and measures 8″ x 4.2″ x 0.5″.

Archos also released a 10 inch tablet called the Arnova 10 G2 recently. That model has nearly identical specifications, but in addition to the larger screen it has a higher resolution display of 1024 x 600 pixels. The larger tablet also sells for $200.

On the one hand, you’d think the model with the lower screen resolution would be cheaper. On the other hand, not everyone wants a 10 inch tablet, so I suppose it’s nice to have a smaller version available at the same price.

Still, with Lenovo and Amazon also pricing new 7 inch tablets at a penny under $200, the Arnova 7 G2 doesn’t look quite as attractive today as it did when Archos introduced it this summer.

      1. Not really, it says “usually ships within 2 to 3 weeks”, that’s what Amazon usually does when they list stuff a bit too early, they may edit the price and give pre-orders an automatic discount once it’s actually in stock.

        The Arnova 10 G2 is $199 now for sale at Tiger Direct, why would the 7″ one be the same price?

        1. So you think they’re going to accept orders now and then refund $50 before shipping the tablet?

          There’s nothing on the product page that says pre-order. This is the sale price… at least for now. 

        2. I dunno. I would wait to be sure about the price until they start shipping. Right now there are lots of new Archos and Arnova products being added to the Amazon database, it often happens they price things wrong or put wrong info on spec page up until they are actually ready to ship.

        3. While i bought my 10 G2 for $199 from TigerDirect’s Ebay store, it was only available for a few days and now at tigerdirect.com it is listed at $249.

          That said I tend to agree that pricing for the 10 and 7 will come down soon.

          P.S.
          Brad, I don’t think the G2 7 comes with a kickstand. My G2 10 doesn’t. JR.com shows a picture, but I think it is from another model.

        4. I bought a decent one from Ebay for cheap. I was going to buy a fake-leather one designed for the Archos101 since they are the same size. However, with the speaker on the back, the cover would muffle it. I guess I could cut a hole, but I actually like to keep it light since I like to hold it, and at 1.3 pounds it is a comfortable weight.
