Archos Arnova G3 will be a series of new tablets that will come in 7, 8, 9 and 10 inch versions, without Android Market. That one gets replaced by AppsLib Market, but I’m sure that there’s a workaround to bring Market in there after all. The folks of ArcTablet are the ones who published the specs for these new modes for the first time, with pics included.
All of the G3 models will run Android 4.0 and if you want their names they are the Arnova 7b G3, Arnova 7c G3, Arnova 7d G3, Arnova 8b G3, Arnova 9 G3 and Arnova 10b G3. The most interesting model is the Arnova 7c G3, that uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 1.3 GHz processor, with 1 GB of RAM and ICS, as mentioned. The 7 inch display here has a poor resolution of 800 x 480 and the internal memory is also low, at 4GB. There’s also a micro HDMI port on board, a front and back camera and the whole thing is a bit heavy, at 800 grams.
Arnova 7b G3 also features a 7 inch display, with the same low resolution, a Rockchip RK2918 1GHZ processor, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage. Everything sounds the same so far and we move on to the Arnova 8b G3 with an 8 inch display, a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, the same RAM and storage as the previous units. Resolution increases to 1024 x 768 pixels in the case of Arnova 9 G3 and its 9.7 inch screen. We also get a 10.1 inch model, the Arnova 10b G3 with 1024 x 600 pixel res 1GB RAM and the same storage as the other models.
With such features, I expect that prices will be around $200, $300 dollars.
