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.

Archos Arnova $200 netbook not worth the money

Archos Arnova $200 netbook not worth the money

Given Archos' weren't exactly responsible for the design and manufacture of their last netbook, the Archos 10, we're guessing they haven't had much of a hand in the new Archos Arnova bar the badging.  The 10.2-inch ultraportable is already on sale for the bargain price of £126.75 ($202) through Amazon, though there are understandably a few compromises made in order to hit that figure.

Archos A101 Internet Tablet clears FCC ahead of US launch

Archos' 101 Internet Tablet has cleared the FCC as the A101IT, though a confidentiality agreement has seen all but the label positioning on a wireframe diagram hidden from our curious eyes.  Announced at IFA 2010 - you can read our hands-on report here - the 10-inch slate has a capacitive touchscreen, 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics accelerator and WiFi b/g/n.

Though Archos' larger internet tablets grabbed our attention first, we spent some time playing with the French company's three smaller models too: the Archos 28, 32 and 43.  Ranging in size from 2.8-inches QVGA, through 3.2-inches WQVGA, to 4.3-inches FWVGA, the three palm-sized tablets are Archos' attempt at hybrid PMP/MIDs, hitting price points from $99.99 to $149.99 to $199.

Archos weren't short of new internet tablets for IFA 2010, though it's their Archos 70 and Archos 101 which stood out when we stopped by their booth earlier today.  Measuring in at 7- and 10-inches respectively, the two Android slates (running 2.1 right now, but set to launch with 2.2 Froyo) are certainly thin and reasonable feature-packed, each toting a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics accelerator and WiFi b/g/n.

Archos 28, 32, 43, 70 & 101 Tablets Announced, Feature Android in Range of Sizes

We can probably safely assume at this point that tablets are here to stay. At least for awhile. And considering the effort that Archos has already put into the Android-based "tablet" market, there's no surprise here that they've just pulled the curtain off five (5!) brand new tablet devices, all featuring Google's mobile Operating System. Ranging in sizes and prices, as well as plenty of Archos-based "improvements" to the User Interface, meet the family of new Archos tablets.

Archos 5 gets unofficial Maemo hack [Video]

Maemo might be evolving into MeeGo, but it's going by a circuitous route that takes in some Archos 5 play along the way, albeit unofficially.  A group of Archos tinkerers have been persuading Maemo (in its Mer form) to run on both the Archos 5 Internet Tablet (usually found running Android) and the Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet, and while it's not a perfect implementation it does at least function.
