Archos 7 Home Tablet now shipping, days ahead of schedule

Sean Hollister

Looking for a cheap Android tablet that's neither KIRF nor vaporware? You could do worse than the $199 Archos 7 Home Tablet, now shipping from Amazon a full week ahead of its "early June" release window. For three Benjamins less than that other slate, you'll get a thin, spacious device that serves as an excellent media player, coupled with a sub-par Android 1.5 experience and a resistive touchscreen. If the lack of Android Market isn't a dealbreaker, you can slap down your bills right after the break, but we'd recommend reading through our full review to see it in action (complete with video) and find out exactly what you're getting yourself into.
