If Archos is to be believed, its 70b internet tablet (IT) is the first sub-$200 Android Honeycomb device. The company claims that the 70b IT is an “enhanced” version of the 70 IT Gen 8, complete with 1.2GHz process and capacitive touchscreen.
The 70b IT will run Android Honeycomb version 3.2 and sport a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 display. It will have access to the Android Market and feature 512MB of RAM. The tablet will feature an HDMI input and microSD card slot, in addition to 8GB of capacity.
Most other high-profile $200 Android tablets, including the Kindle Fire, run Gingerbread, which is a version of Android designed for smartphones.
The Archose 70b IT will hit stores in January for an MSRP of $199.
