You know how the Archos 7 Home Tablet has been up for pre-order at Amazon for a few weeks, and we were told that it would ship in June? Scratch that. It looks like you can purchase one today from the Archos Store.

The tablet has a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel resistive touchscreen display and runs Google Android 1.5. It supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi and has the hardware and software to handle 720p HD video playback. The base model has 8GB of storage space and a micro SDHC card slot that supports up to 32GB of additional storage.

The biggest drawback is that the device doesn’t ship with access to the Android Market. While you can probably install the same hacked version on the Archos 7 that works on the Archos 5, some apps from the Android Market won’t work on a non-smartphone device, and many others won’t run on the outdated Android 1.5 operating system.

  1. I am waiting for the story that says someone came up with a hack that puts 2.1 on this device.

    Can someone explain to me why Google will not allow non-phones to access the marketplace?

  2. Why release a new product with an outdated OS? Guess I’ll wait some more…
