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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
