Archos Has Just Unveiled the 70b Android Tablet for under $200

Yeah it’s $199, so technically that’s under $200 right? I’m not sure why companies think that pricing something like that is a good thing really? I mean do they really think that $1 matters much to people? I mean by advertising something with that ‘99’ price at the end, do people really think it’s a bargain? It’s not just Archos, most every company out there is guilty of doing the same thing. It seems I was off on a tangent there and got off subject. The new Archos 70b Android tablet features 3.2 Honeycomb with 8gb of storage with 512mb of ram and a 1.2ghz CPU. The screen is 1024×600 resolution and of course it’s capacitive.
