Bargain Android tablet has Wi-Fi, 4GB RAM
Archos has added another inexpensive Android tablet to its Arnova line. The Arnova 7 has the same seven inch, 800x480 touchscreen as the Archos 7c, but unlike the 7c it has 4 GB RAM and ships with Android 2.2 (Froyo). It supports video playback at up to 720p at 30 fps and most popular media formats, including .avi, .mp4, .flv, .mp3, and FLAC. The Arnova 7 has Wi-Fi b/g, a micro SDHC slot, and one USB port. The processor was not specified.
The Arnova 7 is 12mm thick and weighs 340 grams (12 oz.)
Archos is also offering access to a proprietary AppsLib store, giving users the option to download and install programs that the company has certified to run well on the tablet.
The Arnova 7 will sell for $99. The tablet has been for sale in the UK since late May, but the company has not announced when it will be available in the US.
