Archos announced two new tablets at CeBIT 2011 that are reasonable in price but can’t compete with iPad and its competitors. According to a spokesman for the French company Archos will be present at the IFA in Berlin, held in late summer, with some highend tablet action. Last year Archos introduced their tablet series at the show with great reception. It seems like Archos will remain so loyal to this timeline: at CeBIT they provide the cheap low end tablet before (last year Archos 7 +8 Home Tablet) and at the IFA the more expensive high-end tablet. Hopefully these are like last years but not too expensive and not in exceed 300€.

    I hope they keep the low price point, although I would have been willing to pay a bit more for my current Archos 70 if it had an option with more memory(RAM, not SD card).

    Overall it runs any application just fine, but the 256MB limitation means most background apps get killed instantly, so you can’t really switch seamlessly between apps. It is particularly annoying with Acrobat Reader, if you are in the middle of some long document, and you just want to check an email, odds are when you return to Acrobat Reader you’ll have to manually locate the page you were reading just a few seconds ago.

    Playbook is certainly making TI’s chipset look pretty sexy! You’re right I’d like to see it running Android!
