Reviews for the Archos 70
Source: Reg Hardware
While there are no plans from Archos to enable Android OS upgrades, if you want a tablet primarily to watch video, listen to music, read e-Books and keep on top of your e-mail and social networks, then the Archos 70 is probably all the tablet you will ever need. It’s small, light, has a decent battery life and, after a quick trip to Archos Fans, will do most of the things a tablet costing twice the price will do. Hunt around and you can find one for around £195.

Getting the best out of the Archos 70 requires a tweak or two to both the device and how you use it. You won't need to resort to such measures if you're willing to splash out £599 on an HTC Flyer or £329 on a first-gen iPad, but for its sub-£200 price, the Archos 70 makes for a worthy budget option.

Held back by an old version of Android and limited app access, but once upgraded could win another star.

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 somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
Archos: The French manufacturer Archos S.A. was founded in 1988. While they initially produced products such as MP3 players, they have started producing laptops, smartphones, and tablets in 2009.

76.25%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
