Whilst in China they may be preparing to celebrate the year of the rabbit, in the tech industry we are all getting set for what is without question going to be the year of the tablet. Electronics manufacturers far and wide are on the verge of launching their own entrant into the tablet market, most likely at CES, but Archos has once again got stuck in early with no less than five Android tablets.
Though, when I say tablets, what I have here is the Archos 32 Internet Tablet, which as the name suggests is a 3.2″ touch screen device that will connect you to the internet. But, stop right there, because if you are looking at this as an internet browsing device, then you’re barking up the wrong tree, because as we will find out, the label ‘tablet’ is indeed a marketing faÃ§ade, which to the untrained eye places it alongside the likes of the iPad, the Samsung Galaxy Tab etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. That’s not a good place to be.
