Archos launches 7in Google Android tablet

Large-screen Android tablet costs £130

Archos has launched what it claims is the first large-screen tablet running Google’s Android operating system. The Archos 7 is now available for pre-order through a number of retailers in the UK for £130.

Designed to bridge the gap between the smartphone and the PC, the Archos 7 acts as a portable internet access terminal and entertainment device, playing back audio and video and supporting the full range of Google Android Apps.

It has a 7in touchscreen supporting 800x480 resolution and is just 12mm thick. Archos says the 350g device provides seven hours of video playback or 44 hours of music on a single charge.

The tablet ships with a number of pre-installed applications, including web radio app Deezer, instant-messaging tool Ebuddy, eBook service Aldiko, and newspaper app DailyPaper.

The Archos 7 is available to order now on the company's website.

This is not the first Archos tablet supporting Android, however. The company launched the smaller screen Archos 5 last year running Google's mobile operating system.
