Remember the Archos 7 tablet that the French manufacturer had launched in the Summer of 2010. Well, it wasn’t the best of tablets that got to see the light of day then and the very few things that rang in its favor was its extremely affordable price tag. Archos has since then gone on to launch a slew of tablets with much better functionality. So much so that many might have thought the old Archos 7 is done for good. However, that does not seem to be the case as Archos is no mood to ditch the 7 inch tablet yet.
And as proof of that, the company has recently launched an updated version of the tablet with enhanced capability. Like the latest version of the tablet now packs in an accelerometer and a more powerful 800MHz Rockchip CPU, up from the 600MHz CPU the earlier model included. Another welcome change introduced in the latest version of the Archos is the Android 2.1 version of the OS, up from the 1.6 that its predecessor came with. Price still continues to be the same $200, which makes it one of the most capable tablets in the budget segment.
