The $179 price is appealing--and we dig the kickstand--but the Archos 70b simply isn't fast enough and doesn't last long enough on a...

The diminuitive Archos 70b internet tablet is a mixed bag. We appreciated the look and feel of the device, as well as the Android Honeycomb operating system and battery life. But we just couldn’t stop ourselves being slightly underwhelmed by the...

Si hay una marca que puede competir a otro nivel en el saturado mercado de tablets de entrada, esa es Archos . Su experiencia y buen hacer arranca en los modelos más básicos pero no renuncian a modelos de gama alta como el Archos G9 cuyo...

Cet appareil hybride, mi-tablette, mi-liseuse, n’offre certes pas le meilleur des deux mondes. Lire, regarder une vidéo, surfer ou consulter ses e-mails reste toutefois tout à fait possible et ce, de façon assez confortable. Pour 89...

Archos est en perte de vitesse évidente ces derniers temps. Pourtant, la firme Française est loin d’avoir dit son dernier mot, et ne manque pas une occasion de se diversifier. La preuve cette fois avec ce 70 eReader, un eBook reader aux...
