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.
