Archos Arnova 8b G2 Tablet is a-OK

by: Christine TorralbaFebruary 18, 2012

Admittedly, there are a lot of people who are unfamiliar Archos’ Arnova tablet lineage. But even though, we believe we are putting things at a fair game here, especially since this line comes cheaper than the price of the (already) cheap main series of Android tablets. So when the company announced the latest member of its Arnova family, we did not stop to re-consider if it would be a good topic to talk about; as we’re sure someone somewhere is looking for a starter tablet that won’t cost him an arm and leg.

The latest entry to this lineage is the Arnova 8b G2, which is only a slight update to the previous Arnova 8 G2. The specs of the new tablet include 800×600 [...]

G2 Arnova Android Tablets Coming From Archos

by: Aerol BibatAugust 13, 2011

When you think about it, the current generation of cheap Android tablets isn’t going to last long. First, the constant pace of technology is going to make them obsolete pretty fast. Second, others are going to be delivering a better experience for pretty much the same price. That’s why it’s no surprise that we’re starting to see the second generation of these tablets.

Archos has been selling their Arnova line – and last week we saw the G2 version of the company’s eight-inch tablet at the FCC. Well, it seems that isn’t where the company is stopping. We’re set to see some more [...]

Archos Smart Home Phones Run on Android

by: glennJune 25, 2011

Mobile phones aren’t the only smart ones anymore. Archos, the French consumer electronics manufacturer, has come up with a new line of home phones that run on the Android operating system. The Smart Home Phone and the Home Connect are handsets that are based on the Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) standard and practically function just like most of the Android mobile phones available today. Except that they’re not carried around in the pocket; they’re left on the dresser or the coffee table back at home.

The Smart Home Phone can connect through any ADSL or basic phone line. Its wireless receiver and charger base are actually two separate items, a [...]

Archos 32 Android media player coming soon?

by: Derek ScottAugust 5, 2010

Anyone looking to purchase the Archos 32, an 8GB media player running Android?  It seems someone accidentally posted the new Personal Media Player a bit early, before removing it, but we still managed to get the details on this unannounced product.  The Archos 32 will offer a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, 8GB of storage for media files, 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity, a built-in camera, Bluetooth, a web browser, and Android 2.1 as the operating system.  The media player is expected to be offered for $147.00.

More Android based Archos tablets

by: James TromansApril 13, 2010

Archos Tablets

Archos CEO Henri Crohas recently announced in a press conference Archos’ intentions to release a slew of tablet based devices running Google Android. In the image to the right, a quick gander led me to believe that Archos have excellent style, branding and design continuity going on there, but it became clear that each tablet you see before you is the same image, adjusted in size to represent the different tablet screen sizes.

The tablet sizes will range from 3” to 10” whereby the latter will sport 800MHz and 1GHz ARM Cortex-based chips. According to our sources, at least one of the tablets will offer 3D [...]

Archos may have two new Android devices in time for CeBIT

by: James TromansFebruary 22, 2010 have caught news that Archos may have two new tablet devices running Android ready to show off at CeBIT this year. The original quote is in German and translates along the lines of “Archos will introduce two brand new, good value Android Tablets that are specially designed for use in the home.”

“…wird ARCHOS zwei brandneue kostengünstige Android Tablets, die speziell für den Gebrauch zu Hause designt wurden, vorstellen.”

Unfortunately there were no more interesting tidbits to tie us over until CeBIT. However, reading in-between the lines would suggest that this does mean we will probably not find a 3G enabled tablet from Archos at [...]
