Stocks of the 5 inch Archos tablet are being wiped off with Best Buy making no effort to replenish. In fact, most of the Best Buy stores have already declared that they have run out of the 16 GB Archos 5, but some BB stores still have a handful of these tablets. Archos is also offering a discount of $30 for the existing tablets so that what would have earlier cost $279.99 is now available for $249.99.
All of this has led many to believe it’s a deliberate attempt to phaze out old Archos 5 tablets, thereby making way for a new model to take centerstage. It’s already known that there are quite a few products that Archos has lined up for release and a replacement for the Archos 5 may be well on the way.
So if you still like to buy the Archos 5 which has always been impressive with decent performance, you should hurry. Or better still, you can wait for the new model to show up.
