Archos Preparing New Archos 8 Tablet
Archos has revealed to a Chinese audience that it will sell an Archos 8 tablet to complement the existing, newly-introduced, Archos 7.
A spokesperson for the company told the Inquirer that the Archos 8 will be coming out this year, very soon after the release of the 7.
The device is set to have an 8-inch screen capable of showing 800×480 pixels, be less than a half-inch thick, weigh 400g and come with 4GB internal storage.
It is not yet known whether there will be expansion slots like a USB port or a card reader.
According to French website ArchosLounge, the Archos 8 will be part of Archos’s new lineup consisting of six tablets with a screen size ranging from 3-inches to 10-inches.
The device will be priced significantly cheaper than its competition, Apple’s iPad, with the cheapest costing $100 and the most expensive $350.
A prospective Archos 10 is likely to have an ARM Cortex 1GHz, Multitouch and 3G Open GL capabilities.
Given that we already know there are 3, 7, 8 and 10-inch tablets, we are left with only one remaining unknown model. As for the Archos 8 Tablet, it should be with us within the next few months.
