postheadericon Archos 28, 32, and 70 now available, do not combine to form mythical Archos 130

Archos’ line of inexpensive (dare we say “cheap,” at times) Android tablets aren’t necessarily on your wishlist, but for the budget-conscious, they’re hard to beat. And now three new models are on sale, including the 2.8-inch Archos 28, the 3.2-inch Archos 32, and the 7-inch (of course) Archos 70. The first two will put you back $99.99 and $149.99, respectively, while the biggun’ comes in both 8GB ($274.99) and 250GB ($349.99) options. What are you waiting for? Honeycomb? You’re adorable.

Our biggest complaint about the variety of Archos tablets? The lack of the Android Market, of course. But while you’ve been able to sideload the Market apk on lots of these devices, there were apparently compatibility issues with Archos’ new Android 2.1 / 2.2 tablets (like the Archos 32 we reviewed just a few weeks). But fear not: ArchosFans to the rescue! A forum member successfully complied a new gApps4Archos.apk that can be easily sideloaded, and installed to give you access to all that Google app and Marketplace goodness. Obviously, we we whipped out our 32 and tried it out ourselves. We did have a few issues at first — you must have the latest 1.0.70 firmware and we had to reboot a few times to successfully connect to Google’s servers — but we were finally able to log into our Gmail and download Pandora. If you’re adventurous enough to try it out for yourself, we’d suggest hitting the source link and getting to it. Oh, and feel free to let us know how it goes in the comments.

postheadericon Archos 32 Internet Tablet review

With there now being five (oh yes, five!) Archos Android Internet Tablets on the market, it’s understandably hard to keep ’em all straight, but in our minds the 32 is easy to separate from the rest – it, along with the 28, is more of an Android PMP than anything else. With 3.2 inches of resistive touchscreen, the 32 packs the specs of a typical media player: 8GB of storage, media player software with support for loads of audio and video formats, and a VGA camera. But unlike most, it runs Android 2.1 (2.2 will be a firmware update, we’re told), which adds quite a bit more functionality in terms of applications and web browsing. And it’s also got an accelerometer for playing games. At $150, it seems like a pretty good deal, especially when you consider that it’s cheaper than an iPod Touch or even a Zune HD (depending on where you’re shopping), but there are a few issues that may hold you back from forking over the cash. You’ll want to check out our full review after the break to find out just what those are.

postheadericon Archos 32 ‘internet tablet’ now shipping for $150, redefining the bounds of ‘tablet’

We’re still struggling to understand how exactly a device with a 3.2-inch display is considered a “tablet,” but at any rate, the Archos 32 is now available for those who’d like to pretend their shiny new PMP is — in fact — a tablet. Shortly after we sat down with this here handheld, Archos has managed to get ’em rolling off of the production line, and since you’re curious, we’ll have you know that $149.99 buys a 0.39-inch thick device with a 3.2-inch touchpanel (400 x 240), Android 2.2, 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, an internal microphone, G-sensor and playback support for nearly every file format under the sun. The battery’s good for up to 24 hours when cruising through tunes, but that dwindles to 6 once you fire up those bootleg copies of Family Guy. Still, not bad for a tablet. Right?

[Thanks, Brett]

“How do you tablet?” Oh yes, that’s Archos’ new tag line when it comes to its growing number of Android tablets. Good timing since, you know, it just went ahead and released a quintuplet of new gadgets. The offerings range from small PMP-like devices with 2.8- and 3.2-inch screens to higher-end 4.3-, 7- and 10.1-inch tablets. All will ship with Android 2.2 “Froyo” and will include accelerometers, while only some have capacitive touchscreens, front-facing cameras and 1GHz processors. There’s a lot more to them all — we’re talking five different devices, of course — so we suggest hitting the break for a short rundown of each of them along with our early impressions. And don’t forget to check out the the gallery of hands-on pictures and videos below.
