Archos 7 and 8 offer Basic Tablet Functionality for 149 Euro. Fast Tablet range Coming in Summer.

Posted on 01 March 2010 by



Update: Archos 7 Home Tablet information now being tracked in the database.
Slightly disappointing for us this morning is the news that Archos have launched two new tablets but only with basic, very low power CPUs. The Archos 7 Home Tablet and Archos 8, a photo frame will run Android on a basic ARM9 CPU meaning you won’t get anything like a fast web experience. One can assume that they’ve got video playback working and are using their offline YouTube playback technology to get that side of things sorted out but don’t expect to be playgin flash games or having a fast UI experience. At 149 Euro though, this is gift-pricing and I can see a ton of people getting one of these for Christmas.

The good news is that Archos have said that a new range of tablets based on ARM Cortex at up to 1Ghz will be coming in the summer with a range of screen sizes from 3 to 10”. Excellent news! Let’s hope that 3G is in the mix somewhere.

    It’s $149 in the USA for the 2GB model. How is that dissapointing? Too cheap? I am posting a video of it to my http://archosfans.com

    Is the processor different from the Archos 5 Internet Tablet? I’m quite excited about the Archos 7 Home Tablet regardless.

    Chippy Reply:

    The processor is very different. Web browsing speeds will be very slow and don’t expect to be using complex online ajax apps. That’s why it’s a bit dissapointing for us.

  7. Charbax says:

    OK, I got confirmation the official MSRP US price is actually $179 not $149, because of the inflation or something.

    My video with hands-on pictures is posted to http://archosfans.com/2010/03/01/archos-7-home-tablet-released-for-179/

    Nice. It kills the Camangi and all those no-brand Chinese sketchy tablets.

    I could see myself getting this because of the AVI video use. Not instead of an iPad, but in addition to one.

    Disappointing yes. Was thinking to have it little something better than this. I think your reviews will give us better picture. By the way Photo Frame is a good use of it, it can be a perfect most useful photo frame :)

    Wow, I am already kicking in some ideas. Lol Got to stop doing this but this is what I am seeing. Setting it on the side table and turn on the home screen with big time piece, linked with push emails so first thing you see along side of time is how many emails (and/or other messages) you get. Switch it to slide show when it is family time and do some surfing or reading when others are busy.

    With this price, its not a bad deal.
