Archos 70b eReader: Review Of Android Tablet

With the increasing popularity of the Tablet PC it would appear that the other thing that is increasing is the price, for a nice refreshing change we thought we would bring you a review of an Android tablet that was easy on the purse strings, so we bring you the Archos 70b eReader.

We have previously brought you news on this devices predecessor the Archos 70, with the amount of attention this device got at CES 2011 it seemed only fitting that we would bring you more news on its little brother. Though not the sleekest of devices compared to other tablets like the Blackberry Playbook or the Motorola Xoom, with a price tag of just £119 we think this could give any of these devices a run for their money.

This 7inch eReader hosts a 800×480 resistive display encased in a very slim plastic body, housed on the body are two buttons that can be used to flick between pages of your books, all other controls and functionality are operated via the screen. If books are your thing the 10 hour battery life should be more than enough to keep your reading needs fulfilled, offering compatibility with most eBook formats (PDF,PDB,FB2,EPUB,TXT) this bit of kit should suffice all your literature needs.

Not only sporting some great features like above this tablet also offers 4GB internal memory which can be expanded up to 16GB via an SD card, and just to make sure you stay connected Wi-Fi will also be included. You can read more on the specs by following this link over to

With quiet a good spec list and a cheap price tag, we expect this device to be really popular with people looking for a cheap alternative to everything else the market currently has to offer. Check out the video below to see the Archos 70b in all its glory.

Do you think there is a better alternative to this device currently on the market?
