Archos’ Arnova 7 G2 and Arnova 10 G2 Launch in Hong Kong with Gingerbread on Board


Yesterday we glimpsed a second-generation Arnova 7 tablet slinking through the FCC, wondering in what ways other than a retooled casing the tablet would differ from it predecessor. Now we have the answers, as the Arnova 7 G2 and its larger counterpart the Arnova 10 G2 have launched in China. Both update the resistive touchscreens of the first iterations with capacitive displays, while processor speed sees an increase to 1GHz courtesy of an ARM Cortex-A8 chipset. Gone are Froyo and Eclair Android builds in favor of Gingerbread. It isn’t Honeycomb, but at lease its something current. With the increased horsepower the once $99 7-inch model looks to retail for around $215 while the 10-incher will be priced at $250. These prices could fluctuate slightly with the announcement of a US release, but so far no word on when that might be happening.
