Archos 7 Home Tablet

If the 4.8″ screen of the Archos 5 is not big enough for you, check out the 7-inch screen of the Archos 7. Same Android tablet, just bigger screen. We have unboxing photos below the fold.


Archos 7 Home Tablet
7″ TFT LCD @ 800×480 pixels
ARM Cortex A8 @ 600 MHz (main CPU)
32 bit DSP @ 430 MHz (additional processor)
128MB DDR RAM
8GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g
USB 2.0
3.5mm audio jack
Android 1.5

Like its younger sibling (Archos 5), this one is almost as slim and constructed with a combination of metal and plastic body but not too heavy for its size.

As for the specs, the Archos 7 was pared down losing some features like Bluetooth and the ability to hook up to the cradle (DVR Station) and connect to a TV as well as record videos. I guess they thought the screen size is big enough you won’t need to hook it up to an external monitor.

One might be a bit disappointed by that missing feature until you discover that the Archos 7 has a retail price of just Php11,500. Now who here thinks that’s a steal?

    Also a disappointment is the lack of flash in the Home 7.

    “The Archos 7 doesn’t support Flash, it lacks a webcam, and the Android Market is off limits”

    Pero kung media player lang hanap nyo na pwedeng pangbrowse sa mga static na sites ok to.

    ronnie seems a bit speechless there.

    While I’ll admit that it’s cheap, the Archos feels like a you-get-what-you-pay-for product. It sports a resistive touchscreen right?

    nice.. but all the real estate with our the flash support is useless. But it is a good media player which is will really put that 7-inch screen into good use.

    no work on the touch screen though. Is it resistive or capacitive. If it was designed after it’s brother the Archos 5, then sports a resistive screen.

    There’s nothing to indicate that this won’t use a resistive touchscreen, especially not the price.

  9. I was actually thinking of getting this BUT changed my mind when I saw China-made aPads/ePads with built-in cameras.

    Any thoughts? They’re around 5k-6k off eBay, free shipping.
