Desktops and Notebooks: Archos Android 2.2 Tablets Deliver Diverse Models, Features
Consumer gadget maker Archos Aug. 31 unveiled five tablets based on Google's Android 2.2 operating system. The devices sport touch screens ranging from 2.8 inches to 10.1 inches and meet an array of budgets, from $99.99 to $349.99. Archos is looking to capitalize on some of the success Apple's iPad has enjoyed in selling more than 3 million units since it launched in April. However, the Archos devices support video calling and Adobe Flash, functionality the iPad lacks. Archos also is challenging devices such as Dell's Streak hybrid communicator and Samsung's Galaxy Tab, slated for release this month. This eWEEK slide show offers readers quick glimpses of the Archos 28, 32, 43, 70 and 101 model tablets.
