Archos’ 7-inch Archos 70 Internet Tablet is now available for orders. The model with 8GB of solid state storage and a microSD card slot for expansion will be available in the markets for $279, and a 250GB hard-drive model is expected to hit the markets soon with a price tag of $350.

The company has crafted the new tablet with a capacitive touchscreen that delivers 800 x 480 resolution and the device runs on the Android 2.2 Froyo. The company has also integrated an ARM Cortex A8 processor that powers the device with a processing speed of 1GHz.

The codec support of the device extends support for AVI, MP4, MKV, MOV, WMV, MPG, PS, TS, VOB, FLV, RM, RMVB, ASF and 3GP formats. The device also gets a 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics accelerator and WiFi b/g/n support. It measures in at 201 x 114 x 10/14 mm and it seems that it will be easy for the users to handle the device.

Bluetooth connectivity is also enabled in the device that is equipped with a front facing VGA webcam. Users will not find Android Market in it, but the company hopes that the device will have an impressive run in the markets.

The company also claims that the battery will power the device for 10hours while surfing the web, 7 hours while playing video, or 36 hours when listening to music.
