Archos 70b


The $179 price is appealing--and we dig the kickstand--but the Archos 70b simply isn't fast enough and doesn't last long enough on a charge.

Click to EnlargeAmazon is currently selling the Archos 70b for $179 and, at this price, it seems tempting. However, there are a number of flaws that keep us from recommending this device. The most glaring deficiencies are the maddeningly sluggish...

Archos 70b eReader


Archos aims to break into the e-book reader market with this budget 7-inch Android 2.1 based device, the Archos 70b eReader. Is it any good? Let's find out.

Archos 70b review


The Archos 70b is a middle-of-the-road Honeycomb tablet with a design that hardly sets our hearts alight. But, the small form-factor (and price) is enticing

Android Honeycomb 3.2 ; Solid build quality ; Built-in kickstand

Performance not exceptional ; Tinny speakers ; Average aesthetics

The diminuitive Archos 70b internet tablet is a mixed bag. We appreciated the look and feel of the device, as well as the Android Honeycomb operating system and battery life. But we just couldn’t stop ourselves being slightly underwhelmed by the...

Archos 70b eReader


A cheap ereader-tablet hybrid, the Archos 70b might be a compromise too far.

Good video codec support ; Low price ; Accepts SD cards

Slow file transfer ; Poor viewing angles ; No Android Market

At 13mm thick, it's significantly thicker than the latest Kindle - which is just 8.51mm thick - but it's no thicker than the average well-designed Android tablet. It's also heavier than a Kindle 3, at 370g against 247g. Archos claims the 70B lasts for...

Archos 70b eReader review


With a resistive touchscreen, a cut-down version of Android and a slow processor, the 70b ereader is a master of no trade, but it is cheap.

However, at this price, a jack of all trades such as the 70b makes a lot of sense. If you can't afford a larger, more powerful tablet, and don't want to carry a separate ebook reader, the 70b may be just right. However we'd still wait for tablets based...

Archos 70b eReader


Although it's taken some convincing to get book lovers onside, eReaders like the Amazon Kindle have proved a massive success over the past couple of years. With the introduction of the tablet, however, this tiny gadgets need to do a lot more to impress...

The colour screen on the Archos 70b eReader may be better for flicking through photographs then, but apart from that it brings nothing to the party. We'd rather have a traditional e-ink eReader, with a much longer battery life and quick responses. If...
