Android Tablet

    Saving up for one of these!
    Is there any with 3G or you can put Internet sim or dongle in?
    Thanks in advance


    I am just about to pre-order the Archos 70 Internet (7" screen) from Tigerdirect in the states for $350 for 250GB storage. Due to ship on the 1st of next month..
    There is another 8GB version for $275.

    You can check the Video review very good device. Looks like it will be shipped with 2.1 but will get 2.2 next month.

    I was initially looking to wait for the Advent vega from Dixon but looks like it might not materialise I ve decided to go for the Archos...there is another 10.1" version.
    About the 3G, this does not seem to have a 3G slot but I have an HTC Desire that I can use as a WIFI Hot spot. So am not really bothered.
    Check out the video link belkow. Pics below as well...…-34

    All the other ones in that price rrange are just chinese product and they arent that good really. The NExt one for £180 has a battery life of about 30 mins watching video...doh.... If you can get someone to get the 8gb archos for you from the states it works out to be around £180.


    wats the thickness of this?

    10mm = 1cm fo rthe 8GB version and 14mm for the 250GB edition.

    There hasnt being much Info on this yet.... Google maintained though that 7" is the max/best screen size to deply Android on, need a code re-write if its going to be applied on bigger screen size. if you watch the video above looks really nice on the 72 screen.. angry birds looks great too..
