Tablets have suddenly become the hottest thing since sliced bread, which I guess makes sense since they can have roughly the same proportions as their sandwich-making brethren. Unfortunately, getting a tablet isn’t as cheap as picking up a loaf of whole wheat.
Arnova is a sub-brand under the Archos umbrella and it seems to have some decent hardware. Sure, the 10-inch screen is only 1024×600 and it’s only got Android 2.1 (Eclair), but they say the ARM-based processor is good enough for 720p. There’s only 4GB of memory, but the SDHC slot should take care of most of those concerns.
The best part? The 10-inch Arnova 10 tablet is listed at $199, but has a street price of about $180, making it heck of a lot tougher than that iProduct that seems to be basking in all the spotlight. That’s even cheaper than a Nook Color!
