Archos 70b eReader review

 

The Archos 70b eReader cuts a line somewhere between an ebook reader and a tablet. Archos have released a number of Android devices in recent years and this latest addition offers up a 7-inch resistive display and a couple of features specifically with...

Adobe certification lets you access your protected EPUB files, SD card slot, affordable

Construction, build quality, screen isn't great, limited Android application, the screen could have been a better aspect for reading, Wi-Fi wasn't entirely stable

It’s easy to misinterpret the Archos 70b eReader. Take it as a tablet, and it’s limited, it’s poor quality and it isn’t exciting. Stick to the reader remit and it shows a little more promise. Of course, the reading experience isn’t as good as it is on...

Battery Life

Love It!

 

I have to use mtpfs on Debian Linux to connect to the computer via the included usb cable. It's inconvenient but workable. However transferring files over the network is easy and intuitive with the included file manager (provided the computer your...

Alot for the money ; 1024x600 screen resolution ; Sensitive touch screen ; Tons of apps on Play Store ; Good File Manager ; Can add extra storage with micro sd card ; Full web browser experience ; Plays almost anything you throw at it (up to 720p) with...

MTP protocol to connect to computer ; Need an OTG cable to connect usb drives ; More ram would be nice but it hasn't been an issue yet
