As reported before, the Android-powered Archos 7 Home Tablet isn't the most powerful device in its category, however, it's shaping up as a great value for what it can offer.  I suppose Dell, HTC and Google are talking about the devices you want but Archos isn't like them, oh no, they are allowing you to pre-order this tablet for the budget friendly price of $199.99 over at Amazon.  I wouldn't get upset over the reported spec of 13-plus-pounds, the last time I checked this guy was sitting pretty at under a pound.  If you're itching for some 720p HD playback in a sweet Android package, this guy is a fair steal.

The old Archos 7's docking station costs more than this does, wonder how much this ones docking station costs?

Clearly a typo on Amazon's part Kieth.

# Product Dimensions: 8 x 4.2 x 0.5 inches ; 13.7 pounds
# Shipping Weight: 2 pounds

Since the Shipping Weight is 2LBS the product weight is probably supposed to be 1.37 LBS which leaves room for the weight of the supplied accessories.

I am almost certain this device wont have full access to market but what im going do is get and the apps i wanna use from droid just back them up with astro then install on this from sd card

I bought an ipad for comics and bigger screen then sold it and made 50 off it just wasn't worth it but this device for 200 is a lot better for casual media consumption
