ArchOS Tablets embrace Android Big Time
January 11, 2011
ArchOS is rooting for Android Big Time !!!
As of this writing there are 5 internet tablets from the ArchOS stable , running Android.
The internet tablets named ArchOS28 , ArchOS32, ArchOS 43, ArchOS 70 and the ArchOS101 are named after the size of their screens.
So ArchOS28 is a device with a 2.8 inch screen and the ArchOS32 has a 3.2 inch screen. As such, these are more of media players running Android, than “tablets”. However, the ArchOS70 with it’s 7 inch screen and the venerable ArchOS 101 with 10.1 inch screen are full-fledged tablets with webcams, HDMI output, 1080p full-HD output et al. And in between these two form factors is the ArchOS43 with a screen size of 4.3 inches (that’s slightly larger than an iPhone).
The devices support 3D graphics acceleration, high resolution video and Wifi connectivity.
The ArchOS70 even has a 250GB disk space, OpenGL support and Flash 10 support.
And not to be left behind, the ArchOS101, over and above all the features of the smaller tablets, supports Wifi 802.11n (a much faster Wifi mode), has an accelerometer and for the geeks, even switch over to OpenEmbedded’s Angstrom Distribution.
With a comparatively cheap price point , (the entire range lies from less than 100 Euros for the ArchOS28 to less than 300 Euros for the ArchOS101)
