The new tablet fitted out with a 3D graphics accelerator and it has 512 megabytes doubled RAM.
The internal storage of the Archos 70b tablet is only 8GB, but the microSD slot can load cards up to 23GB. It also offers a Mini-HDMI port that gives the opportunity to users to hook the tablet up to a TV. Its Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n are thrown in for wireless access.
The Archos tablet includes a number of apps, such as YouTube, Google Talk video chat, Google Maps with Street View and Google Calendar and supplies access to Google’s Android Market.

A front Webcam is a great new feature that can also attract buyers. But it`s still has a rival, Amazon’s Kindle Fire, which came to a market with a blazing start.
