The Sub-$200 Android Tablet from Archos

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.

It might have largely flown under the tablet radar at CES, but Archos has been quietly gaining its chunk of the market share and they’re doing it by being cheaper. Pushing that along even further is the Arnova 10.

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!
