Archos launches 7in Google Android tablet

Large-screen Android tablet costs £130

Archos has launched what it claims is the first large-screen tablet running Google's Android operating system. The Archos 7 is now available for pre-order through a number of retailers in the UK for £130.

Designed to bridge the gap between the smartphone and the PC, the Archos 7 acts as a portable internet access terminal and entertainment device, playing back audio and video and supporting the full range of Google Android Apps.

It has a 7in touchscreen supporting 800x480 resolution and is just 12mm thick. Archos says the 350g device provides seven hours of video playback or 44 hours of music on a single charge.

The tablet ships with a number of pre-installed applications, including web radio app Deezer, instant-messaging tool Ebuddy, eBook service Aldiko, and newspaper app DailyPaper.

The Archos 7 is available to order now on the company's website.

This is not the first Archos tablet supporting Android, however. The company launched the smaller screen Archos 5 last year running Google's mobile operating system.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
