Archos reveals the Arcbook, low-priced 10.1-inch multitouch netbook

updated 04:05 pm EDT, Mon May 12, 2014

Netbook to release in June features Android 4.2, ARM Cortex A9 processor

With the talk about of the upcoming Chromebook lineup expansion, a company has decided to invest in another section of the home computing market that may have been overlooked in the last few years. Archos, a manufacturer that focuses on building Android devices, has brought to light its plans for a new Android netbook called the Arcbook.

It features a 10.1-inch, 1024x600 resolution capacitive multitouch screen, making it more of a tablet with keyboard and trackpad attached, since it retains the Android navigation buttons. The netbook runs Android 4.2 (Jellybean), and comes with Office Suite 6 pre-installed. The weight of the Arcbook is only 2.82 pounds.

Technical specs show a low-powered machine, which falls in line with what might be expected in a modern netbook. The Arcbook is powered by a RK3168 dual-core ARM Cortex A9 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal flash memory.

Battery life on the Arcbook is expected to last over nine hours, according to the company. It features an 8000mAh Lithium polymer battery, micro SD slot, a USB 2.0 port, 3.5mm audio jack, front facing camera and built-in speakers and microphone.

Available in June, the Arcbook will retail for $170.
