Android tablets are getting cheaper and cheaper. Blame it on the ultra cheap Kindle Fire and the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet, or the fact that Android tablet makers are scrambling for the tiny market share not controlled by Apple’s iPad. But whatever the actual reason, the Android tablets are just getting cheaper.
Archos is following Amazon’s steps by announcing a $199 (roughly P9,000) tablet called the Archos 70b Internet Tablet. The specs of this latest Archos offering are not cheap, mind you. It’s a Honeycomb tablet for starters, and it runs on a 1.2GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Add to that a decent 8GB internal storage and a 7-inch capacitive multi-touch display with 1024×600 resolution.
The Archos 70b Internet Tablet will be available starting January 2012. Lets hope this reaches the Philippines soon. In the meantime, you can check out cheaper Android Tablet alternatives from Torque and Cherry Mobile.
