Archos Arnova 8b G2 tablet brings Gingerbread love for a mere $180
Its latest offering, the Archos Arnova 8b G2, might not be the shiniest thing from its stable, but rather, we’re certain that people will appreciate its expected $180 pricing when it’s released. So what do you get for such a cheap price? For starters, you can expect hardware specs that might make you cringe when you compare them to such beauties such as the Amazon Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet – then again, it offers all the beauty of the stock Gingerbread experience.
Specifically, it features an 8” 800 x 600 LCD display, 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 512MB RAM, unspecified sized front-facing camera (no rear), Bluetooth, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, 4GB or 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot. As we mentioned already, this cheapy is going to be packing Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box, however, there’s no mention about upgrades to either Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich.

i keep trying to see the point of the whole tablet story... why would i want a device that is beaten by power and functionality by any low end smartphone of today?

This isnt a good deal at all. The best tablet for the specs and buck is the Ainol Novo 7 Auroa....comes with ICS on a 7" IPS 1024x600 capacitive touch screen, 1gb ram, 1.5ghz processor, front camera, and surprising very thin compardd to tbe other chinese tablets. Its $162 no tax. Now this is a bargain with ICS.
