Archos 70c color e-reader now up for pre-order
The Archos 70 color e-book reader that's been shipping in Europe since December can now be pre-ordered in the US. Called the Archos 70c, the device carries a $150 price tag on JR.com. The 7-inch device runs on Android 2.1 and has official Adobe DRM support for ePub books.
The 800x480 resistive touchscreen gets Wi-Fi, an SD memory card slot and 4GB of RAM, while the CPU has a 600MHz clock speed. Speakers are integrated, as is a headphone jack and accelerometer. The battery should last for 10 hours.
Users can also browse the web, access the Android Market and play back videos, music and photos. [via TheeBookReader]
