Sure, Archos went and launched a whole new line of tablets this year, including a 7 inch tablet called the Archos 70 which has a capacitive touchscreen display, 1GHz CPU, and runs Android 2.2. But that doesn’t mean the company has forgotten about the Archos 7 Home Tablet launched this summer.
The Archos 7 shipped with Android 1.6, a 600MHz CPU, and a resistive display. Now there’s a new version available, with an 800MHz Rockchip CPU and Android 2.1. The tablet still has a resistive display, but at less than $200, it’s a bump up from the older model — if not quite as state of the art as the $275 Archos 70.

After finding some stuff online about the existence of an upgrading model, I bought the 7 Home Tablet last weekend thinking it would be the more recent version. After three days of pain with it, and some more thorough investigation showing that other Android tablets are in similar states of development dysfunction, I broke down and ordered the iPad. I really want a 7″ device, and I really would like the Android experience, but I don’t want to screw with the device more than I use it. At least I can count on the iPad offering a “finished” experience.
