Carphone Warehouse has cut the price of the Archos 7 Home tablet to £75, a clear sign that the tablet is on its way out with another new Arnova tablet, the 7c G2, likely to replace it soon.
The tablet was originally on sale for £180 but has attracted a number of criticisms based mainly on the fact that it comes with a resistive touchscreen and runs on Android 2.1 Eclair without any access to Android Market.
The tablet comes with a Cortex-A8 SoC clocked at 600MHz, 128MB RAM, 8GB onboard memory with a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi a 7-inch display with a 800x480 pixel resolution, Android 2.1 Eclair, Archos' own AppsLib store, tethering capabilities (even though it comes with Eclair), a USB port, a kickstand and the possibility to update to Android 2.2.
Although the Archos 7 Home Tablet is not quite the same as the HP TouchPad 16GB, it will nonetheless be a decent device should you be looking for a portable media player on which you can watch movies and listen to music. You can read a detailed review of the tablet on Engadget here.
Note that you can get it for only £49.97 when you join the AudibleListener plan with Audible.co.uk via Amazon, although the Audible plan will require you to pay £8 a month for one year.
