Archos 70 Available Now for $279.99

Archos just dropped their 4.3-inch tablet for $250, and today sees the debut of the 7-inch models – that feels more like an actual tablet – for $279.99. The ARCHOS 70 comes with a 1GHz processor, 8GB of storage, TV out, WiFi N, Bluetooth, USB, UPnP and Samba support, and Android 2.2. It doesn’t have the Android market, just as we’d expect. Go ahead and grab it now if it sounds like something you want, but if you wait, there will be a 250GB version for $350. [via AG]

    resolution is 800×480, otherwise I’d be very interested.

    also, I think you missed a word after “sounds” in your last sentence.

  • Crazydog

    Don’t forget there’s no Google Apps!

  • Jonski69

    Google Apps can simply be added to give you a great little device if the early reviews are true.

  • The Don

    yeah, but that’s easily remedied. i’m not concerned about that.

    i think the RAM is only 256mb, too. for both the 70 and the upcoming 101. that (and the resolution for the 70) concern me more than the lack of google apps that I can add manually in a couple minutes (if that).

  • samblackjack

    I read somewhere that it cannot display in portrait, which makes it not as usable as an eReader.

  • WhootaHoo

    The 43 is only $30 less? Only $30 for 7″ multitouch capacitive screen vs 4.3″ resistive “single” touch. What gives?

    TO GET GOOGLE APPS AND ANDROID MARKET ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS INSTALL TWO APK’S THAT ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE!

    I’m sick of reading hundreds of comments from people who keep saying that this tablet isn’t worth it because it has no Android Market or Google Maps…etc. This is the first capable Android tablet out yet!

  • wyldtek

    For that price I can work with those specs. I like that is has Mini HDMI out without having to buy a dock too.

  • Jim T

    Ok. So how does this device differ from my Droid X? Specs sound about the same so far as screen size. And the Droid has a phone!

    What am I missing?

  • Daniel

    @Jim T, if you already have a Droid X then you probably don’t need this unless you want a larger screen. These would be great as cheaper alternatives to the iPad, or even iPod Touch for that matter.

  • Chris93036

    @powerx86 that can’t be right.. if it discounted $55 off the price of the archos 7 which is $280 it should be $225 not $494.98 where did you get all those numbers!?

  • Chris93036

    Oh I see.. nevermind
    You bought 2 of them. Your an idiot for posting something like that. You were getting me all worked up!! >=[

  • Zeke952

    It’s basically a super pmp. Yes it can be rotated into portrait mode. Been looking at this thing for a looong time and glad it’s finally here. Any questions go to http://www.archosfans.com. the site admin is a bit…overly excited about archos products, but this thing does look sweet, and I will be getting the 250gb model.

  • George

    Can someone help me, please? How can I order an Archos 70 on their site? All I can get for Archos 70, NOT ARCHOS 7!!, it’s a Notify me button.
    Thank you!

  • Chris93036

    im getting the 10″ model. my moto droid is not fast enough to handle all my apps and there is no great phone like the evo on verizon yet. i dont want to use my upgrade on the X. =[

  • JonathonK

    I want the Archos 70 Internet Tablet ffs… When are more going to be in stock? =-P

    I mean, it’s a good sign that you guys did good on the product. You apparently sold out due to overwhelming demand. But hey, I still want one! :D

  • JonathonK

    No comments?

    No biggy – I’m buying the Archos 5 501313 16GB tomorrow w/ Overnight shipping anyway. Pretty damn good deal on it ;). That’ll be my GPS for my Volvo S70 too, so I’ll still have to get the Archos 70 when it’s available again for my in-work fun.
