Reviews for the Archos 7

The Archos 7 Home Tablet has to be taken on its own merits with both price and target audience in mind. For £130 you get a decent little connected device that will let you access the web, send e-mails, read ebooks and chat over IM, albeit without video. It's a decent media player too. Sure, it's no iPad, but at the entry-level, it is £300 cheaper.

What we have in the Archos 7 is a device that feels like it has been engineered to a price. And that's the scary thing about the Archos 7: the price is biggest plus point. The fact that it runs Android isn't such a benefit as you don't get to experience what the rest of the Android world takes for granted: those freedoms are denied, unless you are happy to hunt out new apps, something the average customer won't want to do.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for small tablets.
