Archos Announces First Android Tablet with 250GB Hard Drive


Archos on Wednesday announced the availability of its Archos 70 Internet tablet in 250GB trim. That's not a typo, this thing sports a capacious 250GB hard drive, giving the iPad and most other tablets a serious case of storage-envy.

"We are proud to be the first to release an Android tablet that features a 250GB HDD," says Henri Crohas, CEO and Founder. "We strive to be the leader in the Android and Windows based tablet market by creating award-winning innovative options at affordable prices."

In this case, Archos defines "affordable price" as $350. In addition to the 250GB hard drive, that buys you a 1GHz processor, native Flash 10.1 support, 720p HD video playback, HDMI, Wi-Fi connectivity, and a handful of other goodies wrapped in a slim and light design (7.21 x 4.49 x 0.55 inches, 14 ounces).
