Default New Archos 7c Home Tablet On the Way

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://liliputing.com/2011/04/archos-7c-home-tablet-makes-a-chinese-appearance.html' target='_blank'>http://liliputing.com/2011/04/archo...appearance.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The 7 inch Archos 7c coming out &nbsp;in June has a 1.2 GHz Rockchip 2918 ARM Cortex-A8 processor. It has a capacitive touchscreen display and supports Google android 2.3."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1302832814.usr309.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Archos has been making "tablets" for years that were basically sold as PMP's and mobile DVR's.&nbsp; More recently they've transitioned to Android tablets though they don't have any that run Honeycomb and the Archos 7c Home Tablet is not an exception as it will ship with Gingerbread.&nbsp; Archos has been doing media very well for years so I'm sure this will not disappoint you if you need high end multimedia features.&nbsp; Archos is claiming it has the fastest processor available.&nbsp; I'm not sure about that but it shouldn't be slow.&nbsp; One major downside is it doesn't have the Android Market but of course there are ways you can add that.&nbsp; There is another model is available for pre-order at the low price of $200.&nbsp; If the price this updated version low it could be a tempting.&nbsp; Is this a tablet you would consider?</p>

I'm just not sure who the market is for this type of tablet - someone who wants a tablet for media consumption, but no apps?
