Archos 70 and Archos 43 Android 2.2 tablets go on sale

Several models in Archos’ newest Android tablet line-up have gone on sale, after making their debut at IFA 2010 several months ago.  The Archos 70 – which has a 7-inch display – and the Archos 43 – with a 4.3-inch display – are both up for order at the company’s webstore, priced at $274.99 and $249.99 respectively.

The Archos 70 comes with 8GB of storage, along with WiFi b/g/n, an HDMI output, microSDHC card slot and a front-facing camera for video calls.  It runs Android 2.2 Froyo and the display is WVGA resolution; you don’t get Android Market access, however.  No word on when the $349.99 250GB version will go on sale.

As for the smaller Archos 43, that has an 854 x 480 display, HDMI output, a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera, USB Host support and WiFi b/g/n.   We grabbed hands-on time with the Archos 43 and Archos 70 back at IFA, where we also shot the following videos:
