The Archos 7 look to a lock for this years CeBIT, but it might not show up alone. There has been an announcement of a second Android tablet by Archos. Both described as “good value Android Tablets that are specially designed for use in the home”.
The Archos 7 is in effect a scaled up version of the Archos 5, already on sale, which runs a custom UI and media enhancements on top of the Android OS. There is also an Archos 9 but it is running a version of Windows, also it has an Intel Atom processor, rather than the more usual ARM-based chipset Android devices are seen with.. Could Archos load Android onto this and bring it to the show? It’s a strong possibility but all we can do now is sit back and wait until it all unfolds at CeBIT.
