So you want a cheap Android-based tablet? Check the Archos 7c

Many people are complaining about the price of “certain very famous tablets” being very very expensive for their requirements. There are plenty of Chinese rip-offs floating around, but then again you are putting yourself at the risk of unsolid capacitators assembed by a 12y old in a well hidden back room.

So essentially until now you only had the really expensive tablets which boast more features than an Italian speaking expresso machine, or the Chinese HQ alternative (where HQ prossibly stands for the region code of the shabby office). Actually,  there are a few ‘inbetweeners’ in the sub-500 dollar segment, but nothing that will blow your socks off.

Do not fear, Archos 7c is here. In short it is a budget tablet running on Android’s Eclair-flavor with a Cortex A8 processor.  720p HD video playback on its 7 inch display,  capacitive screen (800*480px,), 802.11 b/g WiFi, 8GB storage space, microSD/SDHC slot, USB connectivity. Expected for next week’s release at a mere 219 USD.

In the end, very basic with minimal features, not to be compared with Motorola’s Xoom or LG’s G-Slate. But hey, it’s cheap!
