It was just yesterday that we had reported the availability of the 7 inch Archos 70 tablet PC, which costs $279.99 for the 8GB model. Frankly, we didn’t know it would reach the ‘sold out’ status so soon. So it came as a surprise when on checking the Archos 70 site, we were greeted with the absence of the ‘Add to Cart’ button. Instead, the Archos 70 can be seen cozying up with its $349.99 250 GB sibling and the nearest that you can get to the Android 2.2 powered tablet is the ‘Notify Me’ button that will keep you informed of any new development taking place.
However, there is no word from Archos that can clear the air whether the Archos 70 has sold out within a day due to an unprecedented demand for the 7 inch tablet or if Archos just started off with fewer tablets.
