Upon first look is there anything not to love about the Archos 7 Home Tablet? It’s .5-inches thick, has a seven-inch touchscreen, runs Android, and wait for it…only costs $199. It’s all sounded pretty great to us since its CeBIT unveil, but then small, yet saddening details began to emerge about the device: it has a resistive touchscreen, lacks an accelerometer, and doesn’t have access to the Android Market — and worst of all, it runs Android 1.5. Sure, you get what you pay for, but can the Archos 7 rise above those shortcomings and persuade us to dig $199 out of our piggy banks? We’ve spent the last week with the tablet, so you’ll just have to click on to find out.
