Tablet computers currently range in size from small devices with 2.8â€ screens up to higher-end 7â€ and 10â€ models. The Archos 7 is one of the bigger versions with 8GB but also has a microSD slot, which means the internal memory can be expanded as and when you need.
The Archos 7 combines functionality, entertainment, and style. The most visible features are its webcam and its high-resolution capacitive 7" touchscreen, which can be used in both landscape and portrait modes. Running Andros 2.2 Froyo operating system with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 access, the Archos 7 lets you connect any 3G mobile phone to the tablet and have instant access to the internet without the need to pay a separate data service plan. The Archos 7 tablet also supports Samba and UPnP protocols. This means that you can access files from your computer via WiFi, without having to store them on the Archos tablet itself.
Besides the integrated microphone and speaker, thereâ€™s a front-facing VGA camera, USB port and host and a HDMI output, which allows you to play games, watch movies or view apps on your TV screen. The tablet comes with its own Archos pre-installed apps, including eBuddy, Aldiko, Deezer, WordNewspaper, Fring, Wikipedia, and Mewbox. Altogether, itâ€™s a versatile and multifunction package that should answer almost all your mobile cyber-needs.
