As we has expected to see, the Archos 43 and the Archos 28 internet tablets have begun shipping. The latest two devices join the previously for sale Archos 32. Of course, that means at this point we are still awaiting the larger two models, the Archos 101 and the Archos 70. That said, the Archos 43 and the Archos 28 are available with Amazon as well as direct with Archos. The one catch is that the 43 is currently for sale, but listed as out of stock with Amazon. Otherwise, if you order direct with Archos you can expect to pay $249.99 or $99.99 for the 43 and 28 respectively and if you shop with Amazon you can expect to pay $245 or $98 respectively. In terms of features, these are both running Android and have goodies such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n as well as support for a wide variety of file formats. Otherwise, the Archos 43 has a 4.3 inch display, 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, Bluetooth 2.1, microSD card slot and 16GB of internal storage whereas the Archos 28 has a 2.8 inch display, 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor and 4GB of internal storage.
