Archos Announces 8" Arnova 8b G2 Android Tablet

Android tablets seem to be a dime a dozen these days, and honestly, ones that are shipping without Android 4.0 probably don't stand much of a chance to gain traction. That said, Archos has always seen success in undercutting the rest of the universe, and we suspect that the Arnova 8b G2 will be priced at a point that makes even the doubters do a double-take. The new slate will ship with a 1GHz processor, Android 2.3, a multi-touch display, and support for 1080p HD output. It's got an 8-inch, 800x600 display, a 12mm thick chassis and even an optional resistive screen for those who prefer pen input. There's no pricing details to be had right now, but if it's not cheap, it'll be forgotten in no time flat.
