Archos 7 Home Tablet drops in 7 days time?

Archos promised we could expect the Archos 7 Home Tablet - announced back at CeBIT 2010 - sometime in April 2010, but it looks like the 7-inch touchscreen slate could be arriving in tandem with the iPad.  German retailer Redcoon.de reckon they'll have the Archos 7 HT in stock in a week's time, though it's the slightly more expensive 8GB model rather than the €149 ($203) entry-level 2GB version.

Archos 7 Home Tablet gets hands-on video: surprisingly good

The prospect of a 7-inch Android internet tablet running a relatively laggardly 600MHz ARM9 processor left us doubtful about Archos' new Archos 7 Home Tablet, but according to a very enthusiastic Charbax we shouldn't be so concerned.  He's been playing with the Archos 7 for a few days now, and is reporting reasonable browsing speeds, 720p HD playback and 7hrs usage from a full charge.

Alienware’s tablet and phone are designed (you just can’t have them yet)

Alienware has already designed its competitor in the gaming tablet market, but don't expect to see the slate near shelves any time soon: unlike rivals, the company just isn't convinced the hardware is ready for primetime. While the aesthetic of the tablet - to match the new Alienware 14, 17, and 18 - has been settled on, along with an Alienware smartphone and an all-in-one PC, company general manager Frank Azor told us, "just because it looks good, doesn't mean that it's actually going to deliver on our brand tenets."

Archos GamePad hands-on

We're not exactly used to Archos making waves within the tablet industry, but the company definitely turned some heads when it announced its new GamePad last year. The idea is simple: make an Android tablet and give it physical controls for gaming.
