$200 Archos 7 coming stateside in June

Archos has officially announced the pricing and release date info for its updated Archos 7 Internet tablet, which will be powered by Android 1.6 but not have access to the Android Marketplace. The 7-inch resistive touchscreen will have a resolution of 800x480 and the device is just under a half-inch thick. There is built-in Wi-Fi and a USB port for local file transfers, and either 160GB or 320GB of hard drive storage.

Preloaded apps include eBuddy, DailyPaper and the e-reader Aldiko, with more available at Archos' AppsLib store. Archos also promises access to free streaming music from Deezer. As a smaller alternative to a device like the iPad, the 7's battery life is smaller at 7 hours of video playback or 44 hours of music.

The tablet will cost $200 when it ships in June, with pre-orders starting mid-May.

    This could be a super device if Archos can deliver at this cost, it is the same price as the Smart Q devices which came out months ago.. but they all used a slower CPU.

    If I can mount this on the handle bars, Im getting this tablet.

    Archos Tablet

    I have owned Archos products for many years and love them, but I would not buy a unit with Android if I cannot access the Android Apps. Archos apps are very expensive and are very limited so I would probably buy an Apple I-Pad instead to get access to the cheap and great Apps. Step up to the plate Archos and stop making your products tied 100% to you. You could be onto a winner here and even if the price is a bit higher and gave you access to Android Apps I would buy because I love Archos.
