Archos 70 ( 250GB)

 

The Archos 70 Android tablet includes a capable 1GHz processor, capacitive 7-inch touch screen, front-facing camera, Bluetooth, HDMI output capability, and up to 250GB of storage.

The tablet is generally sluggish, build quality feels cheap, viewing angles are crummy, and the app store is thinly stocked.

The Archos 70 offers more horsepower and features than any other tablet under $300, but its limitations make it more of a toy than a tool.

Archos 70 and 101 Internet Tablet review

 

We've seen our fair share of budget tablets from the Augens, Cobys, and Viewsonics of the world over the last six months, but let's not forget that before everyone and their mother jumped into the cheap-o Android tablet pool, Archos was already in the...

Very thin and light ; Responsive capacitive touchscreen ; Great media playback

Crappy LCD with poor viewing angles ; Hardware feels cheap ; Sluggish at times

Archos 70 (8GB) – Low priced tablet

 

Archos 70 has a seven inch capacitive touch screen and it does have some qualities in its favor. The LCD has a resolution of 800x480 pixels and photos and movies look great on it. The details are crisp with well balanced color. Viewing angles aren't...

That said, I think that the Archos 70 is a really good tablet in a lot of ways. Under the hood, there is 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU (which is clocked down to 800MHz out of the box), and for improved performance in gaming, there is 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 graphic...

The Archos 70 features an OpenGL 3D graphic accelerator and a g-sensor

Archos 70

 

The Archos 70 is the smaller sibling of the 101. Can it compete in the fast-developing world of tablets?

- but it's just rather uninspiring.

Seven inches of slimline screen with loads of storage, too. Is Archos's 70 the ultimate budget tablet?

Held back by an old version of Android and limited app access, but once upgraded could win another star.

Archos 70

 

The Archos 70 claims first and foremost to be an 'Internet Tablet' with an 'Android user interface' -- but there are caveats to both of those descriptions.

Archos 70 Android 7in tablet

 

Review Whenever I ask people what they want in a tablet, I usually get the following answers in descending order of importance: a price tag south of £200, a 7in screen to keep things compact and the ability to play any video or music files you care to...

While there are no plans from Archos to enable Android OS upgrades, if you want a tablet primarily to watch video, listen to music, read e-Books and keep on top of your e-mail and social networks, then the Archos 70 is probably all the tablet you will...
