Archos sends two new Android tablets to the FCC for approval

Archos has sent a couple of tablets to the FCC for approval before they launch them in the market, namely the Archos Arnova 10HT and the Arnova 8. These tablets are of 10-inches and 8-inches respectively as the name suggests.

There’s not much info available on the tablet itself, but there are some preliminary specifications of the device which are not confirmed by the company but seem very likely to be implemented. Apparently the Arnova 8 with an 8-inch screen will have a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, a 311 MHz chipset, 8GB storage space, will be Wi-Fi enabled and is said to run on Android 1.5 Cupcake  No info is available on the 10-inch variant though.

The specs look very ordinary to be honest, considering the current market conditions. We’re not sure how Android 1.5 will go along with people i.e. if they actually consider buying the device in the first place. With most tablets launching with Android 2.2 Froyo or further, we think they have a tough task ahead to compete with devices like the iPad and the Galaxy Tab.  But having said that, these are just preliminary specs. The company could make necessary changes to the tablet if needed, to keep up with the current standards of technology. Perhaps the company plans on bringing this out as an e-reader cum internet tablet. Official announcements from the company are awaited.
