Archos Launches $99 Android-based 7" Tablet
6/22/2011 by: Theo Valich
French consumer electronics manufacturer Archos just released what is the world's most affordable tablet. For only $99, Arnova 7 is a 7" tablet featuring Rockwell's ARM11 processor while running the older Google Android 2.2 operating system.
Archos Arnova 7 tablet will retail for $99
The tablet weighs in less than 300 grams, measuring 193.3 x 120 x12.6 millimeters (7.6 x 4.7 x 0.5 inches). The 7" LCD display features resistive screen (i.e. single touch) with the resolution of 800x480 pixels, unknown amount of working memory, 4GB of storage, microSD Card slot supporting up to 32GB (even though, if you're buying a $99 tablet, chances are you're not interested in $99 microSD card) and USB 2.0. For wireless connectivity, Archos built 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connection.
However, a move such as this one will not be welcomed by Google, who is pulling a lot of controversial moves behind the scenes. The release date is not yet known. Still, we're approaching the era of $99 smartphones and tablets. Brace for impact.
