Update: Archos 7 Home Tablet specifications in the database.

Just in from Archos PR company in German is news that Archos have launched two new tablets but with basic, low power CPUs and a very low price point. 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. At 149 Euro though with Wifi, a touchscreen Android OS, USB and 2GB storage, it’s really not a bad deal if video, photo and basic mobile web apps work. I can see a ton of people getting one of these for Christmas.

In the same press release 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 inch. Excellent news!
