Archos 7 Android tablet details leaked: 7″ LCD, 8GB memory

Archos 7 Android tablet details leaked: 7

Leaking out all overt the web thanks to a technical whoopsie by UK retailer Data-Mind is the photos and specs of the new Android-powered Archos 7 tablet.

Packing 8GB of onboard storage, a webcam, and a 7-inch LCD screen supporting a 800 x 480 pixels resolution, the new tablet is a sizeable leap up from the earlier Archos 5 number which, frankly, failed to set our world on fire.

The new Archos 7 measures up at 203 x 107 x 12mm, and is set to go on sale in the UK in March for £149.99.

We don’t imagine having this information leaked out mere hours before details of Apple’s epoch-changing, world-saving, genre-defining (etc etc)  Tablet is set to be announced will be the greatest news for the Archos team.

In fact, we suspect the Rosbif responsible is currently being pelted with onions and being  ‘it about ze ‘ead by an oversized French stick as we type.

    I dunno. I don’t know much about corporate marketing, but I wonder if this is a deliberate ‘leak’, a.k.a. a spoiler.

    Particularly interesting that they have leaked the price- presumably this will be a fraction of Apple’s price?

    This may be unashmedly the ‘poor mans Islate’, making no attempt to be anything other than a consolation prize for those who can’t afford the real thing?

  2. OK so now we have the Ipad pricing, and it converts to £309 for the basic model. My guess is it will more likely be 350 or nearer 400.

    There is no prentence to be an Ipad killer here. The message is “don’t despair if you can’t afford an Ipad- this is almost as good for less than half the price”.

  3. DataMind Press Release – 28 January 2010: Release of Archos new product Information by DataMind

    On 26 January 2010 a reliable UK source of Archos information sent DataMind news & prices of six new Archos devices. No mention was made to DataMind by the source that these products were on embargo. On 26 January DataMind added these products to the website http://www.Data-Mind.co.uk. At noon on 27 January Archos UK requested that DataMind remove all six products from the website. DataMind immediately complied with this request. On 28 January Archos UK thanked DataMind for the prompt action taken.

    DataMind (a division of Megapixels Ltd) has been an Archos UK e-tailer http://www.DataMind.co.uk since 2002.

    “DataMind for Archos – every product (probably!)”
