Archos 70 Internet tablet sports 250GB of storage space
Archos is a name that while isn’t as popular as the iPod family when it comes to portable media players, it has done reasonably well enough by itself to remain competitive in the market. Well, the company has just announced yet another Internet tablet for the masses, this time around concentrating more on storage space than anything else. We’re talking specifically about the Archos 70, where it sports 250GB of storage space. This unique Internet tablet will come with a unique over-molded PVD stainless steel structure that is not only slim but lightweight in design.
Apart from that, it will also not disappoint when it comes to the amount of technology crammed inside, as you will find a high resolution capacitive touchscreen display, a speedy 1GHz processor that zips through your apps without breaking a sweat, and Wi-Fi connectivity to help you surf the Internet whenever possible, all for the relatively decent price of $349.99. Of course, despite packing in all those features, you won’t find the Archos 70 to be fat in any way, as it is still the slimmest and lightest 250GB tablet device on the market at 14 ounces while measuring 7.91 x 4.49 x 0.55 inches.
Oh yeah, did we mention that the Archos 70 Internet tablet will also sport a 3D graphics accelerator to help you maximize its perofrmance? Sporting Android 2.2 Froyo as the operating system of choice, you will find that the Archos 70 will not come up short where connected applications are concerned, as you can take advantage of the web browser and email application and Flash 10.1. Fancy viewing whatever page on a large screen TV? That can easily be done via HDMI, thanks to its HDMI output connectivity option. For those of you out there who are interested in picking up a tablet, which model would you go for? Would Apple’s iPad appeal to you especially, or are you willing to give other brands a chance?
