Archos today announced a monster of an Android tablet -- the Archos 70. It's available now, and these specs are, shall we say, fairly monstrous.
- Android 2.2
- 250-gigabyte hard drive
- Processor: ARM Cortex A8 @ 1 GHz
- 7-inch TFT LCD display at 800x480
- Dimensions: 7.91x4.49x0.55 inches
- Weight: 14 ounces
- 720p video playback
We say fairly monstrous because that screen resolution is a bit disappointing. But being able to dual boot into Linux, Meego or Windows is pretty awesome. Also pretty awesome: A price tag of $350. Got a feeling we know a few people who are going to pick this one up, and we're definitely going to check this out next week at CES. More info's at the source link, and the full presser's after the break. [Archos]
