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]
