Asda offloads affordable Archos fondleslabs

Tablets for budget shoppers

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Supermarket chain Asda is offering a low-cost tablet so folk on a shoestring can now pick up an 8in model for less than £100.

The Archos Arnova 8 tablet is slightly behind the curve in tech-terms, running an outdated OS, Android 2.1 Éclair, on an 800 x 600 resistive touchscreen.

The slate features built-in Wi-Fi and 4GB of internal storage, with further expansion through a Micro SD slot. It also boasts 25 hours of music playback battery life.

Archos now offers the Arnova with a more recent version of Android and with a capacitive touchscreen.

Asda has offered budget tablets in the past, including the Elonex e-Touch, which went on sale last year for roughly the same price.

So if you're after an affordable fondleslab and don't mind the dated tech, Asda is the place to be. Grab an Arnova 8 for £99. ®
