Archos 7c Android 2.1 running tablet gets officially priced, still not yet available for sale

Archos began showing off their latest tablet back during the middle of the month, the model is the Archos 7c and while we had some initial high hopes, it turns out to not be quite as exciting. That said, by that we are referring to the version of Android that the 7c will be running, but more on that in a moment. First things first, the Archos 7c tablet has been priced at $219.99 and seems to almost be ready for sale. At this time Archos has the tablet listed on their store website, however the listing is still showing a “notify me” button as opposed to a add to cart or buy button. And getting back to the version of Android, initially we had heard the 7c was going to launch with Android 2.3, however this listing is still showing as Android 2.1. In other words — an already dated version — especially considering some of the other Archos models are sporting Froyo. That said, we will hope that is a mistake and that it will change when the “notify me” button goes away. Otherwise, the Archos 7c will feature a 7 inch (800 x 480) capacitive touchscreen display, 1.2GHz Rockchip 2918 ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 8GB internal storage, microSD card slot and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g. And lastly, the Archos tablets do not ship with the Android Market installed, however we will say that there is an active community that usually takes care of that need.
