Archos.

Archos has some of the cheapest tablets on the menu right now. They have a mini tablet for under 100$ and other tablets that have a 250 gig HDD. Seems like a great deal right? It is, but android is still at 2.2 Froyo for most internet tablets, and most of the tablets still have a resistive screen, meaning you have to actually push down on the screen to get it to react. I've read some reviews saying the screen is not that bad, but not as good as the apple iPod touch and iPhone and the new nano. The Archos 43 internet tablet is closest to the iPod touch at roughly the same price (8 gigs for 199.99$) They share many of the same features like a camera and a built in speaker and microphone. As of right now I would go for the iPod touch for the style and the Apps, If you are a die hard android fan, and want to check out other Archos tablets, check out heir website http://www.archos.com/

  3. I was listening to NPR this morning about how people have hacked the color Nook to run one of the latest Android. It's around 200$ only. I would check that out if you're into a cheaper version of the Galaxy right now!

  4. I can't stand resistive screens, it was the devil's touchscreen compared to capacitive.

  8. I can't help but think that these tablets are so cheap in price for a reason. I remember when the first knock-off iPods came out, these tables remind me of them.

  27. Archos seems pretty awesome, since I don't really enjoy apple products. Android has been great in my experience (limited, but still have some).
    Keep posting these interesting items. I love looking at new tech that is coming out.

  54. Looks good but the iPad is still the better choice.

  55. Sounds good, but the resistive screen is a deal killer. I have a Samsung Jet for god knows what reason, and I hate the thing.

    ReplyDelete
  56. It looks pretty cool, but I still like the iPad :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I was once planning on getting one, but then decided on a new book.
