Default Archos Arnova 7 hits the FCC, on the cheap

Unfortunately, the specifications are still under wraps. I would think this will sport a 7 inch screen (18 cm). Archos has announced 8 and 10 inch screens. This is a low cost device which is targeted for the penny pincher.&nbsp; I have not used Archos equipment and limited exposure to Android, so chime in if you think this device has potential and tell me why Android is good.</p><p><strong>UPDATE:</strong> <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/22/archos-unveils-bare-bones-arnova-7-android-tablet-priced-at-99/" target="_blank">Here are some further details</a> about the tablet...</p>

Well, you probably won't find anything better for the price but it has some major downsides. 800x480 resolution is low for a 7" tablet. Also, it doesn't have the Android Market on it so that would just be a pain. It probably works as a DVR as most Archos devices do but it might not be good for anything other than media recording or playback. No cameras either....Hmmmmm.
