Archos is getting ready to launch updated versions of its low-cost Arnova tablets. Last week a new Arnova 8 G2 tablet showed up at the FCC, and now Engadget spotted the Arnova 7 and 10 G2 tablets in Hong Kong.

As you can probably guess from the names, the tablets will have 7, 8, and 10 inch displays — just like the current crop of Arnova tablets. All three will run Google Android, but while the company’s current devices ship with Android 2.1 or Android 2.2 all three new models will run Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

While Gingerbread was designed for smartphones rather than tablets, the software has an improved keyboard, better text selection, and other improvements.

The new Archos tablets will also feature 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processors from Chinese chip-maker Rockchip and capacitive touchscreen displays instead of the resistive touchscreens featured on earlier models.

There are still no US release dates or pricing available for the new tablets.
