Yet Another New Archos Tablet, Likely to Arrive in Time for the Holidays

It seems that Archos is hoping to expand its presence with yet another new tablet, this one an 8-inch device called the Archos 80 Cobalt. While nothing that ‘amazing’ its low price and reasonable specs could make it a worthwhile consideration this holiday season.

The Archos 80 Cobalt is a Wi-Fi only device that has an 8-inch capacitive screen, a 1024 x 768 resolution, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. Other specs include 8GB internal storage, microSD expansion, 2MP rear cam, a .3MP front cam and the older Android 4.0 ICS operating system.

There is nothing marvelous about this device but it could certainly be a great budget option this holiday season— if the price is right. No word on the release or pricing, but it is pretty much guaranteed that it will arrive in time for last minute shopping and will likely price under $200 to make it appealing enough for those that might otherwise go with the Nexus 7.

If Archos could manage a price between $100-$175, would you consider something like this or is it just too weak to compete with so many other more powerful 7-inch devices being priced on a little higher?
