Archos tweaks 7in tablet to hit £180 price point

Honeycomb upgrade

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Archos has updated its Archos 70 7in Android tablet, upping the CPU speed, the touchscreen and the OS.

The 70b gets Android 3.2 Honeycomb - the current 70 has 2.2 Froyo - and a 1.2GHz processor, up from its predecessor's 1GHz chip. Archos said it had doubled the Ram to 512MB.

The screen is still 7in, but now its 1024 x 600 not 800 x 480.

Like the 70, the 70b has 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, HDMI output and 8GB of Flash storage. It'll cost £180/$199 when it ships in… well, Archos isn't saying when. ®
